A critical point in class action litigation is the class certification. Courts rarely denied class certification on substantive grounds, thus procedural issues are frequently the cause of denial. This is where a ForensisGroup Class Action Expert Witness can help.
These litigation specialists understand the mechanics of bringing and maintaining the class action itself. Without class certification, the lawsuit cannot move forward. A class action attorney needs to ensure that the class has standing to bring suit, and the action must satisfy each of the prerequisites of Federal Rule 23(a): (1) numerosity of the parties; (2) commonality of legal and factual issues; (3) typicality of the claims and defenses; and (4) adequacy of representation.
ForensisGroup Class Action Expert Witnesses have consulted on numerous cases and have worked with class counsel to have the court certify the action as a class action. Some of our class action expert witnesses have consulted on class certification in complex civil litigation cases involving issues in environmental, energy, securities, and insurance. Many Class Action Experts have worked with law firms on employment cases, which have seen a very high rate of class certification, as well as a very high rate of classes that are certified as part of a class-wide settlement agreement.
