The lawyers with the Cochran Firm Dothan have extensive experience with complex litigation and trial preparation techniques for complex legal matters.

Lawsuits can be characterized as complex litigation when one or more of the following features are involved with bringing a claim:


  • Numerous different, but unquestionably related, issues

  • Issues involving complex calculations or engineering

  • Large numbers of potential witnesses or parties to the suit

  • Extreme time pressures imposed by judges, opponents, or client imperatives

  • Massive amounts of documents and other information that must be reviewed

  • Presentation and cross-examination of expert witnesses in highly specialized fields of expertise


Class action litigation is one of the most common forms of complex litigation. A class action suit is a case brought against a company whose actions have damaged a group of people in a similar way. A single person who has been injured may bring a class action on behalf of everyone who has been harmed. After the action has been started, it is common for many other injured people to join the class action lawsuit and become “class members.”

Dangerous drugs, defective products, and unfair business practices are often the focus of class action lawsuits. Products subject to class action litigation can include over-the-counter or prescription medication, defective machinery, tools, motor vehicle defects (for example seat belts and tires), toys and electronics. Class action lawsuits allow consumers to join together in order to create a safer society and ensure a fairer marketplace.
