Complex litigation is intended for complex civil cases that usually involve multiple parties, large amounts of money, lengthy time in the courtroom, and other complex legal issues. This means matters such as class action lawsuits, mass torts or anti-trust cases are all large-scale legal issues that are considered to be complex litigation. If you need help with a complex litigation case, our Philadelphia complex litigation attorneys at Sacks Weston LLC can help.
Below are some examples where complex litigation may be necessary:
- Class actions
- Federal civil cases
- Business & commercial litigation
- Employment class actions
- International matters including transactions, investments, employment negotiations and arbitration
It is not uncommon for civil actions in different district courts to involve similar allegations and questions of fact. To best reduce the burden on federal district courts and make the litigation process more efficient, these types of civil actions are consolidated and transferred to a single district for pretrial proceedings, although they remain separate cases. This process is called multidistrict litigation. The parties can file a motion to transfer their civil actions to the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, which will decide whether to transfer the case. If the panel does decide to designate the case to a transferee court, a transferee judge will oversee and coordinate the pretrial proceedings. At every stage of the process, our attorneys can provide strategic counsel and effective plans of action for both plaintiffs and defendants involved in multidistrict litigation matters.
