Mayer Brown’s Class Defense Blog offers the insights of Mayer Brown litigators on cutting-edge issues in class action law and policy. Our goal is to identify and analyze recent trends in the filing and defense of class actions and other forms of aggregate litigation against businesses. We also will report on relevant legislative and regulatory developments.
The contributors to the blog are Mayer Brown partners who have handled a wide array of complex class action litigation, and speak and write frequently on issues affecting class actions. The firm’s class action defense team has been named a 2012 “Class Action Practice of the Year” by Law360 in recognition of the firm’s overall approach to class actions and its notable achievements in several widely publicized recent cases, including a major victory for businesses that use consumer arbitration in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion. In 2012, Mayer Brown’s Litigation & Dispute Resolution practice also was recognized by The American Lawyer as one of the top six US litigation departments in its prestigious “Litigation Department of the Year” report.
