Winston & Strawn’s class action practice is comprised of more than 300 attorneys who are well-versed in defending class action litigation in both state and federal courts. The firm’s attorneys have tried virtually every type of lawsuit that can arise in the course of operating a sophisticated business. Drawing on the firm’s significant experience in resolving complex litigation using creative and aggressive arguments, clients rely on Winston & Strawn litigators to steer them through class action matters including those presenting consumer fraud, antitrust, securities, product liability, labor and employment, ERISA, mass tort, false advertising, and those brought under federal and state unfair competition statutes, such as California’s Section 17200 Unfair Competition Law. These cases involve both nationwide and state class actions, as well as multi-district litigation (MDL) proceedings, and often raise complex legal and procedural issues under the U.S. Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA).
The practice is anchored by several seasoned class action lawyers, many of whom have been recognized by Chambers Global, Chambers USA, U.S. News & World Report, Global Competition Review, Legal 500, and other prominent organizations as being top practitioners in their field.
