Class Actions

Class actions are now broadening their influence beyond traditional areas of law such as consumer protection and product liability, and have begun expanding, with increasing success, into other areas of law such as securities law, competition law, employment law, franchise law, environmental law, and human rights law.

Joining a class action is a way to have your disputes resolved in a low-risk, low-cost manner. In most circumstances, class actions are pursued on a contingency fee basis, meaning that class counsel is only paid if a settlement or court award is achieved.

By bringing an action on behalf of hundreds or thousands of individuals, class actions make it possible to pursue claims that would, on an individual basis, be uneconomical.

Call Cunningham Bounds to level the playing field. Our class action litigation efforts have achieved successes that have not only recovered billions of dollars in settlements, but also achieved substantial reforms in corporate governance that protect us all.
