Multi-District Litigation (MDL)

In many class-action lawsuits, the defendant has injured thousands of victims throughout the country. The court may organize the case by appointing a single jurisdiction to hear all pretrial motions, including discovery issues. Plaintiffs are then divided into trial groups whose cases are heard in the original jurisdiction. Such cases often involve massive drug litigation or other mass-tort negligence litigation.

The class-action lawsuit attorneys at KO have successfully represented clients across the nation in class action litigation involving dangerous products. KO has extensive experience litigating cases in MDLs, including cases against technology conglomerates, national banking institutions, insurance companies, and many others.

The attorneys at KO utilize the latest technology and software to manage client correspondence and other documents. They have the resources necessary to provide each client the personal attention and commitment they deserve.
