Franklin D. Azar & Associates has already made an investment in its class actions practice, but with recent hires and new cases filed, the firm is now expanding that focus.
Ivy Ngo joined the law firm in January from the San Diego office of Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd, and Paul Wood joined in May from Polsinelli.
According to Frank Azar, he wanted to expand that practice by hiring the top talent. Past laterals to the group included Natalie Brown, Dezarae LaCrue and Anna Martinez.
Azar said the firm has been doing class actions for a long time, primarily in wage and hour claims, but it’s now expanding that practice to encompass other areas.
