Birmingham Class Action Lawyer

All lawsuits are not born equal.  The level of complexity in class action, mass action and large-scale proceedings requires experience, knowledge and capabilities that many law firms don’t have.

The lawyers of Christian & Small have helped their clients successfully navigate the treacherous waters of many of the largest and most complex lawsuits in Alabama and throughout the South.  We work quickly to understand our clients’ legal and business objectives, while efficiently managing public exposure, multiple, often adverse parties, complicated legalities, and time consuming discovery and preparation.  We are continually investing in the best technology available.  This allows us to efficiently organize massive amounts of documentation, manage and conduct extensive discovery, and synthesize evidence for persuasive use at trial.

Christian & Small has represented defendants in dozens of complex lawsuits, including putative nationwide class action cases, multidistrict litigation, and multi-party, multi-jurisdictional state court actions.  Our notable recent successes include:

  • Our lawyers achieved a total victory for our clients, domestic affiliates of one of the world’s largest banks, in a nationwide class action certified in the only Multidistrict litigation case ever taken to trial in Alabama.  Our lawyers tried the case, and won it in the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, while other defendants in the financial lending business paid very large sums to settle the claims against them.
  • We achieved a complete success for our client, a major pharmaceutical company, in the first of seventy three “Average Wholesale Pricing” cases filed by Alabama’s Attorney General. The Alabama Supreme Court reversed a jury verdict for the State and rendered judgment in favor of our client.  The national press reported the Supreme Court’s decision, and The Drug and Device Law blog named it the year’s most significant decision.
  • As national coordinating counsel, Christian & Small handled the defense of a component manufacturer in a product liability multidistrict litigation in the Northern District of Alabama, culminating in the successful settlement of all MDL cases and numerous related state court actions.
