With some of the most challenging class certification laws in the country, clients with class actions pending in the state courts of Arkansas need an experienced legal team to help them defend against state and federal class actions. Mitchell Williams’ team of nationally recognized litigators has served as lead and co-lead trial counsel in multiple class action cases involving awards valued from $10 -$500 million dollars.
Class actions pose risks to companies in all industries. Entities dealing class action litigation are faced with litigation that is overwhelming in size, scope, and potential exposure that can negatively impact an organization’s finances, operations, and reputation.
Our litigators represent organizations in all aspects of class action proceedings. We have a proven track record of early successes achieved through defeat of class certification, dismissal of claims of class representatives, and negotiating favorable settlements. Our team provides clients with the best and most cost-effective defense by combining a command of the rules and procedures governing class actions with an in-depth knowledge of the substantive areas of the law involved in the case.
Our Arkansas based team has been involved in certification arguments and briefings in both state and federal courts, and in class certification arguments at the Arkansas Supreme Court level. At trial, we have experience obtaining, preparing and presenting class action and merits experts, and preparing class action cases for trial on the merits.
