In Israel, where the number of authorizations to lodge a class action continues to break records year after year, companies and businesses must protect themselves from class action suits. In our current reality, requests for class action authorizations are also lodged even when no cause exists. Nonetheless, these suits gain media attention, and must appear in traded companies’ reports. This makes the need for oversight by lawyers specializing in litigation and conflict resolution, with expertise in representing defendants in class action suits, vital.
Whether the suit being lodged relates to consumerism and retail, securities, technology and the internet, consumer products and food, or any other field, our law firm’s attorneys draw on their vast experience to offer professional guidance, either for specific issues or on an ongoing basis, across all stages of the lawsuit. We provide legal consultancy intended to reduce the feasibility of a class action suit being lodged against an organization in areas related to the business, and handle letters of caution received in advance of a class action towards neutralizing submission of the request to authorize a class action suit. We also provide smart, ongoing and uncompromising counsel to respondents and defendants in proceedings seeking approval of class actions, and during the class action itself.
