Faegre Baker Daniels serves as national counsel for a major window manufacturer in 25 consumer fraud and product liability class actions in multiple jurisdictions and in multidistrict litigation (MDL). Throughout the multiyear representation of the MDL, FaegreBD has achieved denial of class certification in two bellwether cases, exclusion of class experts for all cases and denial of motion for reconsideration, complete dismissal in 14 class actions, and an order terminating the MDL.
FaegreBD’s work as national discovery counsel for the window manufacturer has supported the client’s victories. FaegreBD effectively negotiated Case Management Orders setting protocols for the format and scope of document production and defeated two motions to compel additional and overly burdensome productions. The team conducted exhaustive custodial interviews, oversaw preservation and collection efforts, oversaw/hosted review by employing more than 60 contract reviewers, and produced hundreds of thousands of pages of documents from more than 100 sources. The discovery team managed employee custodial source productions within reasonable and necessary limits.
