Class action litigations are often centered on the class certification process, which requires a focus on whether there is a common impact suffered by the class members. Our Economic Advisory Staff has worked with both Plaintiffs and Defendants in large class action matters, as both consultants and testifiers, to come to better clarity as to whether a proposed class of Plaintiffs should be treated as a single group.
We have also assisted in the determination of damages. The firm’s financial modeling experience helps provide understanding as to whether damages can be consistently and appropriately determined on a class-wide basis. We also assist with settlement analysis tools and the distribution of settlements.
