Strategically Managing and Defending Against Class Action Litigation
The attorneys in KDV’s Class Action Practice recognize how high the stakes can be when a company is threatened with class action litigation. Our lawyers take quick and aggressive action to build a powerful defense strategy aimed at protecting our clients and limiting their exposure to potentially catastrophic liability. While we are often able to defeat class action claims at their inception or prior to class certification, we are also successful in resolving class actions cases through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution. If the case cannot be resolved, our class action lawyers are experienced litigators who know how to defend large-scale class action cases. .
The attorneys in our Class Action Practice handle a wide range of class and collective actions, including:
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Cognizant of the fact that the number of ADA claims being brought as nationwide class action lawsuits are on the rise, KDV attorneys help clients address these high-risk, high-impact claims. Our lawyers work closely with clients to develop and implement litigation strategies designed to bring ADA class action suits to a swift and favorable conclusion.
- Civil Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Our attorneys defend clients in RICO class action matters in federal courts across the country. We have a comprehensive understanding of the RICO Act and leverage this knowledge to build a powerful defense plan focused on bringing the matter to a quick and successful resolution.
- Data Breaches. With privacy and data breaches an increasingly prevalent occurrence in today’s technology-driven society, organizations of all sizes and types are at serious risk of large-scale legal claims and lawsuits. Our attorneys counsel and defend companies threatened with multi-district class action litigation stemming from high-stakes data breaches.

We represent telemarketing companies, debt collectors and other entities using “robo-dialers” in the defense of this ever-increasing source of claims.
