Class Action Defense


The increasing use of class actions as a vehicle to attempt to force unwarranted settlements can pose a financial crisis for your business. Our attorneys are experienced in guiding our clients through the often confusing world of class action, toxic tort, mass casualty, and Fair Credit Reporting Act litigation.

In recent years, Adler Murphy & McQuillen LLP lawyers have represented airport operators and air carriers in class action litigation ranging from alleged contamination of groundwater, to the crash landing of an aircraft at Chicago-O'Hare International Airport, to contract and injury claims arising from the air carrier's contract of carriage and airline tariff. In addition, our lawyers have represented credit reporting agencies in class action litigation for alleged violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. In most cases, we work to obtain an early dismissal or other resolution. However, in some high-exposure cases, early resolution may not be an option. In those instances, our overall expertise and litigation experience is invaluable when cases proceed to trial and appeal.
