Craig Ackermann has obtained class certification in 8 contested class certification motions since 2008, including one in December 2018 for over 4,000 truck drivers in a still-pending wage/hour case, and another one in mid-2017, in a trucker rest break case for 540 drivers that settled for $2.95 million. In 2016, after 7 years of litigation against a different trucking company, he has obtained a $1.2 million fee award on a contested fee motion in a class action where the total recovery to the class, including fees, was over $3.3 million. In the early 2000s, he was the second chair on a $23.5 million settlement for 150 female workers in a case that, at the time, was the 2nd largest sexual harassment case in US history.
In addition to truck drivers, sales representatives, farmworkers, security guards, and restaurant workers, he represents senior executives in private equity and fortune 1000 companies in contract and stock options cases, severance negotiations, and high-stakes litigation.
Craig Ackermann’s growing practice in Washington, where, along with Texas and California, he is now licensed led to our opening of a new Tacoma office. He is excited for 2019 and beyond!
