Jenner & Block

Class Action

We offer clients a powerful combination of trial experience and extensive knowledge of the complexities of class action law suits.  Our attorneys are vigorous, innovative advocates who have won victories for defendants and plaintiffs in federal and state courts across the country.  We emphasize early strategic thinking with the goal of obtaining the best business result for our clients.

In each case, we draw upon the firm’s substantive experience in the area of law at issue, as well as our particular knowledge of complex class action procedures and strategies.  We have represented clients nationwide in proceedings involving such areas as antitrust and unfair competition, consumer financial services, consumer fraud, employment, environment, insurance, mass torts, product liability and securities.

Our proactive team approach enables us to guide our clients through the issues raised by these intellectually intricate lawsuits.  We pride ourselves on developing a partnership with corporate counsel, and we are often asked to suggest methods of risk management to minimize the impact of an anticipated problem.

In 2017, our food and beverage practice was named a “Practice Group of the Year” by Law360, and was recognized by Chambers USA among the leading food and beverage litigation practices in the United States.  Our attorneys frequently speak and write on class action issues.  Our partners are the authors of the leading treatise on class actions, Moore’s Federal Practice (5th Edition), and have published other works in the field. We are also active in the American Bar Association’s Litigation Section Class Actions Committee and the Chicago Bar Association’s Class Action Committee, including serving in leadership roles.
