Consumer Class Action Defense

Tap into our experience defending class action lawsuits.

The stakes can be high in class action lawsuits filed over Internet-related conduct. In stark contrast to offline businesses, in the online context marketing and billing practices are often identical for every consumer who purchases online, and small, moderately capitalized companies may engage in tens or hundreds of thousands of transactions with consumers. So, a class action lawsuit that seeks damages for all consumers who transacted with a company may threaten to bankrupt the company. This is especially the case in lawsuits that allege statutory damages for each consumer who transacted with a company online.

Companies who are sued in a class action choose Kronenberger Rosenfeld because our firm has over 10 years of experience representing a multitude of types of Internet related companies. Knowledge and understanding of complex Internet business models and technical processes is what differentiates our firm. We have had success in defending class actions by immediately delving into the complicated factual allegations and identifying problems with the plaintiffs’ cases before plaintiffs’ counsel has much invested in the case, making an early resolution of the case much easier. Simply put, our experience with Internet-related companies and business models has led to better results for our clients in class action lawsuits.

We are relentless and aggressive litigators but also have the judgment to know when to craft a creative settlement. Often clients sued in class action lawsuits are in bet-the-company situations, and they have chosen our firm due to our experience and judgment in defending class action lawsuits.
