Class Action Defense

Intensity and Experience

When size matters, count on nimble representation.

A class action claim against your company can result in harsh consequences, from severe reputation damage to destruction of all your hard-earned resources.

At Anthony Ostlund, we appreciate the risks of class action litigation. We develop the best defense to your lawsuit, and we work hard and efficiently to serve your current and future business goals. 

Class action cases can quickly become significant matters. We staff every case strategically to give you the utmost in service while keeping costs down. Our focused, dynamic group of litigators attack each claim with a level of intensity that surprises many of our opponents.

Although we prepare each case as if it will go all the way through trial, we tactically pursue motions to dismiss and similar proceedings, where appropriate, in an effort to achieve a faster, more economical client result.

We have achieved success defending class action cases in a variety of industries. For example:

  • Defeated an attempted "collective action" in AAA Arbitration seeking over $6 million against our client, a Phoenix-based bank. After the attempted "arbitration class" failed, the cases settled collectively for under $200,000.
  • Resolved class action claim for nuisance value against for-profit college related to claims of deceptive trade practices in the school's sports medicine program.
  • Resolved class action claim against a broker-dealer client for a minimal amount. The claim related to a registered representative's allegedly unauthorized Ponzi scheme.
