Consumer class action defense

With consumer class action litigation on the rise against dealers, Manning Leaver has developed strong experience in defending consumer class action lawsuits.  The firm has developed and implemented strategies to attack class claims at early stages of the litigation, including demurring to class claims, moving to strike inappropriate class remedies, petitioning to compel arbitration and therby invoke and enforce class action waivers, resisting overly burdensome discovery, and opposing class certification.  The firm has also developed strategies, where appropriate, for crafting and implementing class wide settlement agreements designed to protect its clients and provide them with finality.
