Handling Class Action Lawsuits Is in Our DNA

Our involvement with class actions began  with the Black Farmers case (one of the largest civil rights class action lawsuits in history). We led a team of law firms in overcoming monumental logistical and operational challenges as we orchestrated the class action claims process for tens of thousands of farmers discriminated against by the United States Department of Agriculture.

This case demonstrated our commitment and class action capabilities – and culminated in a $1.25 billion settlement for 15,700+ Black farmers.1,3

That case took intensive case management skills on a massive scale – we organized meetings with nearly 22,000 potential claimants across 23 states and Washington D.C. in the allotted 180-day timeframe. And it took grit, determination, and skill.

United States District Judge Paul L. Friedman recognized these efforts and stated in his opinion on the case, “Class counsel have undertaken the immense challenge presented by this action with the utmost professionalism and integrity, exhibiting skill, diligence, and efficiency in all aspects of their duties.”

This is the kind of commitment and experience your client deserves. And this is how we approach each class action case.
