More About Class Actions

A commercial damages class action lawsuit is a legal procedure where a single plaintiff, acting as a representative for a larger group of people or businesses (the “class”), sues a defendant for financial losses caused by the defendant’s alleged wrongdoing. These lawsuits typically involve complex commercial disputes, often regarding breaches of contract, fraud, or anti-competitive practices. For a class action to be certified by the court, several requirements must be met including numerosity, commonality, typicality and adequacy.

Numerosity: The class must be so large that individual lawsuits would be impractical or inefficient.

Commonality: The legal issues and claims of the class members must be similar enough to justify a single lawsuit.

Typicality: The representative plaintiff’s claims must be typical of the claims of the class members.

Adequacy: The representative plaintiff and their lawyer must be able to adequately represent the interests of the entire class. VERTEX experts have in-depth services including contract review, valuation, contract review and standard of care.
