What is a lead plaintiff in a Wisconsin pharmaceutical class action case? Is this something I want to be?

Every Wisconsin pharmaceutical class action case has one or more lead plaintiffs. The lead plaintiff is the one who, together with a Wisconsin pharmaceutical class action attorney, makes decisions about the case. In most cases, a court will decide who the lead plaintiff, or small group of lead plaintiffs, should be in each class action case that is filed.

Generally, a lead plaintiff in a Wisconsin pharmaceutical class action case will have three responsibilities. Specifically, it will be the responsibility of the lead plaintiff to:

  • Chose a Wisconsin pharmaceutical class action lawyer to represent the class of plaintiffs.
     
  • Work with the pharmaceutical class action attorney during settlement negotiations, pretrial motions, discovery, and trial.
     
  • Decide whether any settlement offers should be accepted or rejected.
     

Whether you are the lead plaintiff in a Wisconsin pharmaceutical class action or you are part of the general class of plaintiffs, you will be entitled to make a legal recovery if the case settles or if the class is successful at trial.
