Mass Tort & Class Action
DBMS maintains an active practice in defending companies from financially dangerous mass tort and class action suits. DBMS’s team experience with mass tort litigation dates back to the origin of class action suits in the 1970’s, defending the manufacturer of Dalkon Shield intrauterine devices.
Over the ensuing decades, DBMS has repeatedly defeated class certification and defended mass injury claims on behalf of companies in the automotive manufacturing, pharmaceutical, medical device, telecommunication, hospitality and restaurant industries.
DBMS successfully defends a variety of mass torts, including mold infestation and “sick building” cases, consumer fraud claims, breach of warranty matters, product defects and recalls, and financial misconduct and misrepresentation allegations. These high-visibility cases often carry threatening levels of exposure for the defendant companies that have chosen to entrust DBMS to deliver favorable results.
