A securities class action lawsuit allows a single or small group of investors to pursue claims against a wrongdoer on behalf of all similarly harmed investors.
Likewise, a consumer class action combines claims of a large number of consumers into one legal action against a commercial entity.

Why Class Actions? Efficient Resolution of Large-Scale Disputes
A class action provides an efficient way to resolve a large-scale dispute. Rather than burden the court system with hundreds and sometimes thousands of individual lawsuits, a class action serves to consolidate all victims into one case. This avoids the massive waste of resources that would result if plaintiffs filed thousands of individual lawsuits involving identical issues.
Similarly, through a class action, defendants' resources are preserved because they only have to defend one case, rather than up to thousands of individual cases.
Class actions also help ensure consistent results, rather than conflicting results that could happen if thousands of individual cases were filed.
Finally, class actions are particularly effective when each victim's damages are relatively small, making it economically unfeasible to pursue an individual case.
Should You Initiate or Join a Class Action, Seeking to Recover Investment Losses or to Right Wrongs Committed Against Consumers?
- Is your securities fraud case unique enough and large enough to warrant its own arbitration or litigation? Or should it rather form the basis of a class action that will include many other investors who suffered similar losses?
- Is your consumer complaint too small on its own to justify the expense of a lawsuit — but together with other consumers' similar complaints, compelling enough to bring a class action?
Dimond Kaplan & Rothstein, P.A., is a valuable resource for investors or consumers considering initiating or joining class actions against brokerage firms or other commercial entities.
