Consumer class action litigation affects a large array of clients, across different areas of the law. Any corporation that engages in marketing that affects consumers, in any way, can wind up in class action lawsuits, potentially facing claims from thousands of consumers across the country. Federal courts have recently addressed key defenses against class certification, including standing to assert class claims, demands to arbitrate, waivers of class actions in agreements, and preemption. Understanding the fundamentals of class action procedures and the process of class certification is key to advising clients and defending against class claims.
