McCarter & English defends businesses against class action, multidistrict, and other multi-claimant litigation around the country, with a particular focus on cases alleging violations of the New Jersey’s Consumer Fraud Act and Truth-in-Consumer Contract, Warranty and Notice Act (TCCWNA), as well as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). These types of cases have become more and more prevalent, the cost to defend against them can be exorbitant, and the cost to your business even if you win can be crippling. McCarter has decades of experience defending against class actions, does it cost-effectively, and knows how to minimize the overall impact on your business.

We are leaders in the field and have experience settling, trying and appealing hundreds of cases in the state and federal courts. Our record speaks for itself in consumer fraud, ERISA, products liability, financial services, securities fraud, labor and employment, antitrust, intellectual property and mass tort claims. In recent news, McCarter & English represented AstraZeneca in the Seroquel® class actions, helping the global pharmaceutical company settle the cases for one-fifth the cost of similar cases.

We also have deep subject matter knowledge and work hard to understand your business and the underlying issues. For example, in the pharmaceutical, medical device and healthcare industries, our products liability and mass tort work is supported by a Ph.D.-led science group, which counsels on the medical and scientific aspects of evidence and identifies world-renowned experts.

We help corporations and nonprofits to successfully defend class actions and multidistrict litigations involving the full range of potential claims, including, with respect to:

Breach of Warranty/Breach of Fiduciary Duty
Consumer Protection
Employment Benefits and ERISA
Labor and Employment
