Litigating and Avoiding Class Actions

Quarles & Brady has been involved in successfully litigating and/or assisting clients in avoiding numerous class action and multi-plaintiff matters. A significant amount of such litigation and advising has involved collective/class wage and hour claims and representative litigation. Highlights include defense of exempt status misclassification claims, minimum wage and overtime, and related Migrant Worker Protection Act claims; unpaid meal period claims; donning and doffing claims; and wage payment claims. Additionally, Quarles & Brady has continued to handle pattern and practice claims involving allegations of race and disability discrimination. 

In addition to defending class action and similar representative matters, Quarles & Brady has assisted many clients with responding to the increase in such litigation—particularly in the wage and hour area—with claim avoidance efforts. Such work includes assisting clients with large-scale compliance audits and implementing strategies to modify potential violations while minimizing the risk of related claims.
