Representative And Collective Litigation
Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLP (SFMS) has broad experience representing clients in representative and collective litigation in the United States and Europe. The attorneys at SFMS have been appointed lead counsel in scores of class action and representative litigation cases, and the courts that have appointed SFMS in these actions have consistently recognized the excellence and zeal of the representation our firm provides in such engagements.
SFMS attorneys have successfully represented certified classes and other plaintiff groups of all sizes and across a broad spectrum. Our comprehensive experience includes antitrust, consumer protection, employment discrimination/civil rights, employee benefits, ERISA/fiduciary compliance, housing practices, insurance coverage/practices, securities fraud/breach of fiduciary duty and wage and hour class action litigation. SFMS also represents defendants and select groups of plaintiffs in opt-out litigations and arbitrations.
Nationwide And International Experience In Collective Litigation
With multiple offices throughout the United States, from New York to Florida to California, and attorneys licensed in many states, SFMS has the capacity to coordinate and prosecute collective actions on behalf of far-flung plaintiffs, and to litigate in many state and federal jurisdictions. We are affiliated with the Integrated Advisory Group, an international network of law firms and professional firms that we can associate with for local counsel, co-counsel and sharing of resources. These connections enable us to engage in representative and collective litigation in the United Kingdom, other European Union countries and worldwide.
SFMS has represented a variety of private and public plaintiffs, including institutional investors, private companies, officers and directors, other fiduciaries and labor organizations. In such litigation, SFMS has been successful in recovering hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients. In addition, we have procured tens of millions of dollars in charitable cy pres donations to worthy organizations as a result of the outcomes that we have achieved. Unlike certain lawyers who undertake class action litigation, the litigators of SFMS know how to prosecute cases to trial and have extensive experience trying complex, multi-district and class action cases. In federal and state courts, as well as arbitral forums, SFMS attorneys have tried cases on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants to successful jury verdict, judgment and award.
