Class Actions & Derivative Suits
Eitan Mehulal Sadot’s Litigation Department defends commercial enterprises from action suits filed by individuals representing multiple plaintiffs. The department also specializes in derivative suit litigation, in which a shareholder files a lawsuit in the corporation’s name with regard to the actions of one of its officers.
Due to the complex nature of class actions and derivative suits, a high-level of legal expertise is required to ensure successful litigation.

The firm’s litigation department has represented clients in hundreds of class actions in fields ranging from retail and technology to food products and environmental sustainability.
