Class Actions + Mass Torts
For decades, Herzfeld + Rubin has successfully represented domestic and international companies in major class action matters, including litigation with potential “bet the company” exposure. We are known for our vigor and creativity in defending our clients, ranging from small and mid-size businesses to Fortune 500 companies.
Herzfeld + Rubin is at the forefront of this uniquely challenging and ever-changing area of law. Our class action attorneys have served and continue to serve as national and local lead counsel to major companies in class actions and multi-district litigations in federal and state courts throughout the country. We have extensive experience successfully defending clients in all phases of nationwide and statewide class actions in claims such as consumer and commercial fraud, deceptive and unfair business practices, unfair competition, RICO, false or misleading advertising, Lanham Act, misrepresentations and omissions, product defect, breach of contract and warranty, and violations of state and federal consumer protection statutes.
Our proven record includes victories and successful dispositions in federal and state courts throughout the United States, vigorously defending our clients’ legal, economic, business and customer relations interests. Moreover, in addition to individual national and statewide class action litigation, we have been lead and co-lead counsel in some of the largest multi-district litigations in history, including In re Takata Airbag Products Liability Litigation (S.D. Fla.), an MDL consolidating class actions throughout the country involving Takata airbag inflators and the largest recall in automotive history, and In re Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation (N.D. Cal.), involving diesel emissions issues. We also regularly defend our clients in opt-out and related state court litigation, as well as litigation involving State Attorneys General and other state and federal governmental entities.
Our class action team is proud to have earned the trust of its multinational corporate clients, and through that trust, with continued successful results, we have maintained relationships with these clients for decades. These relationships thrive because of our unwavering aggressive approach, deep understanding of our clients’ interests, brands and products, and successful implementation of our clients’ objectives through innovative and creative strategic approaches. Our extensive knowledge and expertise further enables us to regularly provide guidance and advice to our clients regarding litigation avoidance strategies, crisis management, and addressing legal, regulatory and customer relations issues.
