Class Actions



Many of the largest companies in the Carolinas have entrusted their class action defense to Robinson Bradshaw, including Wells Fargo (formerly First Union and Wachovia), Duke Energy, National Gypsum, SPX Technologies (formerly SPX Corp.), Family Dollar, CommScope, BB&T, Cone Mills, World Acceptance and aaiPharma. The subject matter has included federal and state securities claims, ERISA, employment discrimination, claimed wage and hour violations, claims for breach of fiduciary duty, consumer finance claims, antitrust, Truth-in-Lending and many others.

The firm and its litigation attorneys are recognized as leaders in the field by numerous legal publications, including Benchmark Litigation, Chambers USA®, Best Lawyers in America® and Super Lawyers®. We were the first law firm in the nation to receive the American Bar Association’s Pro Bono Publico Award for our work as lead counsel in Hyatt v. Barnhart, a class action lawsuit challenging the termination and denial of Social Security benefits to thousands of disabled North Carolinians.
