A class action is a lawsuit in which a group of people collectively pursues a claim which affects all the members of the class. The idea behind class actions is effective access to justice. Where there’s a common issue involving many people, the court can more effectively provide justice in one court case, than in many separate cases. Class actions can arise in a variety of areas, including: product liability, consumer law, employment/pension issues, and securities fraud. MMW lawyers have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in class actions.
