Head to head with corporations and the Israeli authorities.
When a number of consumers, employees or users join to form a class of plaintiffs, this poses a potential threat to the defendant organization. Collective legal action also often entails business and public image considerations. An organization or government agency, when sued, will recruit the best legal minds and public relations experts to have the claim rejected in limine, to prove that it does not meet the criteria for approval of a class action, or to fight it in both the media and the court. Therefore, the representatives of groups of wronged individuals must be prepared for both the scale and the complexities of such legal action, as well as to the methods of operation and disproportional strength of the defendant organization.
