A smooth process with fewer surprises

Class action litigation can turn in unexpected directions. Quandary Peak has the technical expertise to help you navigate whatever labyrinthine software landscape you're facing.


Pre-litigation Research

Class action filings are like carpentry: you want to measure twice and cut once. Our experts will teach you about the technologies at issue in the litigation so you can form your initial complaint strategy. We will make sure each detail of your complaint that relies on computer science is sound, verified, and supportable.

Class Certification

Quandary Peak understands that the size of the class can make or break a nascent case. Knowing who belongs in the class is critical to meeting the threshold for certification. You have to be crystal clear about who the technology was for and through what channels it was distributed. Our experts can analyze the software’s usage to form the basis for the class. In some cases, we can even obtain the metrics and analytics that underpin your motion for class certification.

Discovery

Defendants don’t want to hand over logs, emails, and source code; they will attempt to delay and distract at every turn. The experts at Quandary Peak are familiar with these tactics. We can help you write your production requests and interrogatories to get you the information you need. Whether your language needs to be technically precise, generally broad, or something in between, Quandary Peak will make sure your discovery requests have real teeth.


Code Review

Code reviews can be contentious. Defendants may know their code contains the evidence you’re seeking, or they may be anxious about trade secrets leaving their control; either way, they don’t want outsiders looking at their code. Quandary Peak has performed dozens of code reviews. We know what to propose, how to counter unfair proposals, and what apps will be needed in the review room to ensure productivity.

Ongoing Analysis

Software class action cases have many moving parts. Continuances, discovery disputes, haggling over production, and managing teams of attorneys can all add up to lengthy, complex cases which can take a long time to play out. Quandary Peak’s experts will remain by your side; we are your long-haul partners as the case winds its way through the legal system.

Depositions and Courtroom Testimony

Testimony is a critical piece of your legal strategy, so you’ll be glad to know Quandary Peak’s experts have collectively testified dozens of times for depositions and trials. We know the technology, we can handle cross-examination, and we convey complex ideas in a relatable way to help the jury understand.

I would like to thank you for the wonderful expert testimony you provided — resulting in a $3,056,000 verdict... [jurors] chose to ignore the defense expert’s testimony because you were by far more credible, knowledgeable and prepared."
