TMF consultants have substantial experience advising clients on employment, securities and consumer class action matters, among others. We assist clients during both pre- and post-class certification phases of an engagement.
Prior to class certification, our consulting experience includes analyzing potential class members, creating and analyzing databases with pertinent information about potential class members, examining similarities and dissimilarities among the potential class members, providing analytical support to counsel for liability and causation arguments, and preliminary evaluation of damages for plaintiffs and defendants.
Subsequent to class certification, our consulting and testifying experience includes analyzing financial and economic damages, sampling of class members and/or analyzing individual class members. Our consultants have also functioned as claims administrators by managing distribution of settlement amounts paid by defendants to class members. These assignments have covered a variety of industries and circumstances, including California Section 17200 claims, environmental, toxic tort, entertainment, professional services, retail and transportation, as examples.
