Perry Dampf

SPECIAL MASTER
A Special Master assists the Court and counsel in complex/class action cases, including facilitating the completion of discovery and labor intensive file administration. Our Special Masters are neutral leaders with excellent reputations who implement case management schedules and handle discovery based on judges’ orders. By using the experience and resources of a third-party Special Master, the Court significantly reduces its burden, potentially resulting in cost savings and faster resolutions.

Perry Dampf’s Special Masters can provide services throughout the litigation process including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Acting as a liaison between the Court and the parties;
  • Maintaining records throughout the process;
  • Managing the discovery process, including scheduling, resolving disputes, and communicating with the Court and parties;
  • Overseeing testing protocols and computer modeling;
  • Creating and managing a method for allocation;
  • Generating claim forms;
  • Determining the amount of claimant awards;
  • Supervising the funding process;
  • Monitoring settlement compliance, ensuring that the settlement agreement is implemented properly.

In order to offer a unique service designed at maximizing efficiency and quality provided to all parties involved in complex litigation, we have teamed up with Postlethwaite & Netterville. By joining the experience and skills of a Special Master and a Disbursement Manager, we aim to make the process as seamless and timely as possible for all concerned parties. Many firms offer either Special Master or Disbursement Management services, but our team provides a solution for the litigation process from discovery to disbursement and every step in between.
