Class Actions

A class action lawsuit allows one person or a small group of people to sue on behalf of hundreds or even  thousands of different people with similar complaints.  Because there is strength in numbers, a class action lawsuit is a powerful tool that individuals can use to enforce the law against large corporations and government entities.

There are several factors that law firms must consider prior to bringing a lawsuit as a class action:

  • Numerosity – are there enough people affected by the illegal practice to warrant a class action
  • Commonality – do the affected people share common legal or factual issues
  • Typicality – are the claims of the person(s) bringing the suit typical of those of the entire class
  • Adequacy of Representation – will the law firm bringing the case be willing and able to represent the interests of the entire class.
