“Litigation is the basic legal right that guarantees every corporation its decade in court” – David Porter.
Global biotech company.
As a result of a product recall our client was exposed to over 15 class-actions across three continents. With a small in-house team and no dedicated litigators the GC was struggling to manage the dramatic increase in workload while strategically managing litigation risk.
Deploying an experienced litigator, Plexus worked with the in-house team to:
- Develop a litigation strategy that limited reputational consequences.
- Project-manage the various stages of the litigation.
- Establish rigid governance and compliance guides which would significantly mitigate risk.
- Co-ordinate stakeholders for a global response.
With major class action experience and +10 years within both top tier and in-house litigation teams, Plexus’s lawyer was able to proficiently support our client through the litigation process. Particularly valuable to our client was our lawyer’s US litigation and negligence exposure.
The client was able to negotiate settlements with the majority of parties, ensuring limited litigation costs and reputational damage. This ensured the in-house team could remain focused on supporting a complex and rapidly growing business.
