Milwaukee Class Action Litigation Attorneys
Class actions involve groups of people suffering similar harm or losses. Many of our cases involve litigation as a class action. In a class action, one or more class representatives bring a lawsuit on behalf of a class of persons who are similarly situated. Many times, the members of a class could not afford to bring individual lawsuits, and the class action allows them to be compensated without incurring the costs of a single suit. Our lawyers have successfully handled high-profile class action lawsuits in state and federal courts throughout Wisconsin, and are ready to answer questions you may have about a variety of existing class actions, or about the formation of new class action to address injuries and damages involving:
- Corporate misconduct
- Consumer fraud
- Defective products
- Defective motor vehicles
- Employment discrimination
- Pharmaceutical drug litigation
- Civil rights
- Lender liability
- Multi-district litigation
