Efficient, Effective Class Action Defense

The class action defense lawyers at Dillingham & Murphy assess claims and potential claims from the outset. Dillingham & Murphy lawyers apply informed guidance and business judgment to every class action matter. We assert procedural and substantive defenses to minimize the costs of defense, reduce client exposure, and set the table for resolution by motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, opposition to class certification, in limine motions, by settlement, and by trial. For example, where possible and beneficial, Dillingham & Murphy class action defense counsel persuade the court to stay or hold off on costly class certification discovery and motion practice, in favor or targeted discovery addressing the merits (or lack of merit) of the class representatives’ substantive legal claims.
