Class Action

Class actions allow a few persons to sue a defendant on behalf of a larger group of persons who have suffered the same injury. They are most commonly filed in federal courts, but can also be brought in some state courts under the right circumstances. Television shows and movies have led many people to associate class actions with defective consumer products and unsafe medicines or medical devices but the category is, in fact, far broader.

Class actions can also be brought against insurance companies that misrepresent their policies, against employers who engage in discrimination or otherwise violate employee rights, against companies who misrepresent themselves to investors and against financial industry players who rig the system in favor of their own interests at the expense of their clients.

Such cases are often large in scope, lengthy and exceedingly complex. Pursuing them requires a special type of legal expertise.

Client Reviews
Adam has been my corporate attorney for over 10 years. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He efficiently moves through the judicial system and always keeps the best interest of his client in the foreground. Janet
We hired Adam to represent us for a patent dispute. He was excellent from the very beginning. He was thorough, detailed, honest, forthright, succinct, and available to us for questions at all times. Needless to say he achieved the best outcome we could have hoped for, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I only wish I could have given him a check mark on all of the attributes listed on LinkedIn, but it would only allow 3. Matt
I just recently sold my company and the firm of Danziger Shapiro held up the legal end of the transaction. Adam Shapiro left no rock unturned to protect my interests. The closing did not proceed as smoothly as we had hoped, but Adam was supportive through the entire process. They have been my legal advisors for my company for many years and I have the utmost faith in them. They always keep the clients best interest at heart. J.H.
