We fight for you.
For over 25 years, Cohen & Malad, LLP, located in Indianapolis, Indiana, has pursued local, national and international class action cases in courts across the country. Our class action attorneys aggressively prosecute class actions on behalf of consumers, investors, professionals and businesses, through trial and appeal when necessary. We are proud to represent class members seeking relief from the unlawful and fraudulent acts of others.
A class action lawsuit allows a group of victims to litigate claims effectively by consolidating their claims in a single case.By sharing resources and costs, these similarly-situated individuals and businesses can seek justice for a widespread or systematic harm that was caused by the wrongdoing of another party. Class action lawsuits allow select persons and businesses, and their lawyers, to stand up for the rights of those who may not otherwise have a voice.
Class actions cover a variety of issues and serve to not only achieve justice for those who have been wronged, but also to deter businesses from engaging in various forms of misconducts. As an example, imagine that a large corporation is looking to increase its profits next year by 5%. It could cut operating costs by reducing staff or it could charge consumers an imaginary fee or tax, for the exact same products they are currently selling, for a little as $20 for each purchase. This new fee would greatly impact the bottom line and generate profits to help management reach budget projections. But it could be unfair to the purchasers if the fee is not permitted by law. In such a case, a class action is the only mechanism that would allow the purchasers to recover. A class action would also serve as a deterrent to the corporation from engaging in further misconduct or wrongdoing. Without a class action, such a company has no incentive not to continue with deceptive or improper business practices.
We welcome the referral of potential class actions from other lawyers, and frequently co-counsel with other law firms to assist them in the prosecution of class action claims. We take class actions seriously and evaluate the merits of the claim to determine its validity and viability. We are a champion for seeking justice for our clients. We prosecute claims fully using our vast knowledge and resources to protect the rights of businesses and consumers in a variety of such cases. If you have a case that you believe may be a class action, we would be happy to speak with you. There is no charge for the initial consultation.
