Attorneys at Cummings, McClorey, Davis & Acho, P.L.C. (CMDA) have experience defending class actions against a wide range of claims. Class actions claims can raise some unique insurance coverage challenges, but generally, issues of whether an insurer has a duty to defend a class action claim are analyzed similarly to any other claim.
Our clients depend on us to develop imaginative, effective strategies to defeat class certification and plaintiff’s claims at an early stage and protect their long-term interests. CMDA lawyers have effectively defended alleged class claims prior to discovery or have substantially limited discovery prior to dispositive motions.
Additionally, our attorneys have succeeded in having the class allegations stricken from the case at the outset through aggressive negotiation and innovative legal arguments. CMDA has experience addressing the procedural issues that often arise through complex litigation and in managing the electronic discovery issues companies often face in defending class-wide allegations.
