Prevailing in a Class Action Lawsuit

April 12th, 2010

Make your case with expert testimony

A recent class-action lawsuit against several ARM firms could have set an adverse legal precedent for future litigation in the industry.

However, using an expert witness provides a distinct advantage in complex litigation cases. Lawyers and judges readily rely on credible, third-party experts to define, quantify and substantiate a claim, and industry and market expertise carries enormous weight in legal proceedings.

Challenge:
Our client was named along with a major debt buyer in a class action lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court. A judgment against them would have set a legal precedent that would be devastating – not only for the client and the other named defendants, but for the debt buying industry as a whole.

It was critical that they prevailed in this lawsuit, and they needed to credibly and accurately inform the court about the nuances of the debt purchasing industry. If at all possible, they ultimately wanted to obtain a summary judgment dismissal of the lawsuit before it went to trial.

Solution:
We were appointed as industry experts to provide a complex, detailed report on all components of debt purchasing, including specific industry matters and practices. Our information was the primary means to inform the court as to the processes of debt buying, as well as to address several technical points integral to the case.

The court ruled in favor of our client’s motion for summary judgment. The judge’s order specifically mentioned our report as one of the key factors in the ruling.

What can we do for you?
When you are facing a valuation dispute, damage assessment, contract claim, employee matter, or other pending legal action, our litigation support professionals are thoroughly experienced in assisting you and your legal counsel.

We can provide a credible source for detailed analysis, targeted reporting, and expert witness testimony, which is crucial to successful litigation. We have a track record of success, and our findings have never been invalidated in court.
