Our class action settlement administration team is comprised of subject matter experts with decades of experience managing some of the largest and most complex settlements in U.S. history.

Our Services

Pre-settlement Consultation Services

Consulting with our team early in the settlement phase protects counsel, preserves fund assets and streamlines the administration process. Our experts ensure the settlement agreement has the most advantageous structure, from notice plan through tax strategy, eliminating post-settlement filings to the court, reducing costs and minimizing the administration timeline.

We can consult with you on all aspects of the case, including, but not limited to:

  • Establishing processes for data gathering and database design and management
  • Designing an effective notice strategy and multi-channel media campaign as needed
  • Setting notice and claim timelines
  • Developing a case-specific website
  • Handling of class member claims, including all class member inquiries

Our accounting and tax professionals manage the taxation of qualified settlement funds and fair funds under Internal Revenue Code section 468(B) and have earned a reputation for cost-efficient, accurate support. We provide secure fund management processes and systems in cases involving disbursements to thousands and even millions of people.

We leverage our longstanding relationships with leading domestic and international financial institutions to offer the most competitive market rates.
