Class Action Defense
RMG's litigators have decades of experience successfully defending our clients in high-stakes, complex, class-action lawsuits. Our class-action defense clients range from local and regional financial services companies to Fortune 500 companies, covering a wide variety of industries. We also represent officers and directors who are sued individually. We have helped our clients minimize or completely avoid liability under a host of state and federal consumer protection statutes, as well as common-law liability theories.
We have deep roots in the federal and state trial and appellate courts in Maryland, as well as the Unites States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. When appropriate and cost-effective, we often partner in class-action cases with our clients' national litigation counsel. Our clients understand that at the end of the day, all litigation is local. Our experience in and knowledge of the courts in Maryland, along with our credibility and reputation for effectiveness, make a difference.
We assess each case strategically. We have won many cases by motion without any discovery or trial, and in others negotiated court-approved settlements that had minimal impact on our clients' businesses. We have successfully defended our victories before state and federal appellate courts, where we enjoy a reputation for excellence. When there is much at stake in a class-action case in Maryland, you want us on your side.
