Caplan Cobb specializes in the litigation of significant tort matters, including constitutional torts.
Caplan Cobb handles all manner of complex, high-stakes tort actions—from consumer and product-liability class actions to high-stakes individual cases. We also represent corporate class members in analyzing whether to opt out from antitrust, securities, and other class actions. We’ve recovered millions for plaintiffs and obtained complete defense judgments for defendants. Our experience—and success—on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants gives us a 360-degree perspective that allows us to assess your tort case just like your adversary will, identifying potential weaknesses and exploiting strengths.
One of Caplan Cobb’s great strengths is the firm’s expertise in constitutional law—both individual rights and structural issues, such as the separation of powers and law of democracy. Our lawyers clerked for federal judges, an experience that involved them in the litigation of constitutional issues on an almost daily basis. And they have carried that experience through to Caplan Cobb—having represented clients in matters as diverse as a statewide class action seeking injunctive relief under the Sixth Amendment; numerous actions under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 for violations of various provisions of the Bill of Rights; a constitutional challenge to state mechanisms for funding public education; and habeas corpus and criminal matters involving a variety of constitutional issues. We win constitutional cases because we know constitutional law.
