Class Action Defense - International

Overview

With the combined experience of attorneys from our International Litigation and Class Action Defense teams, BakerHostetler is well-positioned to advise clients in class, collective and other multi-party and multi-jurisdictional litigation throughout the world.

By collaborating with an extensive international network of law firms, we offer clients the benefit of attorneys who are well-versed in the practices and procedures of the local jurisdiction, whether they are in the U.S. and need assistance navigating a foreign jurisdiction or a client abroad, facing class action in the U.S.

For clients facing parallel litigation in two or more jurisdictions or who need assistance with jurisdictional issues in transnational and multinational classes, we have the experience and resources to help. Our seasoned litigators also provide discovery services in the U.S. related to foreign litigation.

National Class Action Defense team leader Paul Karlsgodt is the editor of one of the most comprehensive books on international class and collective actions and other multi-party litigation, World Class Actions, A Guide to Group and Representative Actions around the Globe (Oxford University Press, 2012).
