Class Actions

Class action lawsuits involve an individual or small group who file a claim as representatives of a larger group. For more than 30 years, Koskoff has been actively involved in representing plaintiffs in class action cases here and in other states.

The firm was instrumental in reaching a $90 million settlement of a class action lawsuit brought on behalf of victims of the Colonial Realty pension plan Ponzi scheme against a major accounting firm.
