  • Insurance and Reinsurance

  • Class Action
    DOAR’s approach to class action litigation remains the same regardless of whether the matter is related to employment, securities, products liability, or toxic torts. We have found consistent success advising our clients to mount an aggressive attack and win at the class certification hearing.

    This begins by a) testing case themes before a panel of retired judges in a mock class certification hearing; b) using the video depositions of representative plaintiffs; and c) developing powerful graphics to illustrate the commonality or prove the dissimilarity of class members and their circumstances.

    Our recommendation is to prepare for the class certification hearing as you would for trial because being “trial ready” will send a powerful message to your adversary. Clearly, a win at this stage saves time and money.
