The defense of any class action claim is a costly endeavor that has the potential to profoundly damage a company’s long-term outlook. Any business named in a class action suit must retain exceptional legal counsel at the earliest possible stage.
For decades, companies in the energy industry and other industries have placed their trust in Pierce & O’Neill, LLP. Our attorneys defend business and energy clients that face consumer class actions in a wide variety of matters. Some of our representative cases include:
In all class actions, our lawyers begin by comprehensively evaluating and analyzing the legal, factual and procedural issues in play. Whenever practicable, our objective is to defeat class certification and dismiss the suit outright. As trial lawyers, we are fully prepared to present a compelling defense at trial to protect our clients’ interests. On the other hand, if negotiations are likely to yield the best possible outcome, we will not hesitate to advise our clients to pursue this avenue.
More than anything, we at Pierce & O’Neill pride ourselves on delivering results-oriented, client-centered representation. Our approach enables us to prepare the kind of individually tailored legal strategies that characterize the finest in legal representation.
