Whatley Drake and Kallas, LLC is a national plaintiffs' firm, committed to litigation that results in meaningful change. WD&K was formed in Birmingham in 1998 as a successor to the firm of Cooper, Mitch, Crawford, Kuykendall & Whatley. The Firm has a legacy of serving leadership roles in significant complex class action and derivative litigation, including securities, 401k, healthcare, insurance, employment and mass tort litigation. WD&K also remains devoted to its longstanding representation of unions and workers throughout the United States. Our class action and complex litigation practice was strengthened in 2006 by the addition of a team of experienced class action attorneys in New York City . In 2007, WD&K was one of thirteen firms named to the National Law Journal's Plaintiffs' Hot List, the annual list of the country's most prominent plaintiffs' firms. Our national practice includes 34 lawyers across offices in New York City, Birmingham and Boston . Throughout its history, WD&K has been at the forefront in class actions and complex cases across the United States, effecting meaningful change through settlements and verdicts for classes of people, businesses and pension funds. WD&K and its partners have served as co-lead counsel in numerous high profile class actions that have recovered billions of dollars for class members, and have achieved significant corporate reforms. Examples of recent cases in which the Firm served in a leadership role and was extensively involved in the litigation and negotiation of settlements include: In re: Managed Care Litigation (resulting in billions of dollars in cash and value to a class of 900,000 physicians throughout the United States); In re Insurance Brokerage Antitrust Litigation (settlements with defendants Zurich Insurance Company and Arthur J. Gallagher on behalf of commercial policyholders for in excess of $130 million); In re: Qwest Savings and Retirement Plan ERISA Litigation (approximately $37.5 million); In re: HealthSouth Corporation Securities Litigation ($445 million); In re Denney v. Jenkens & Gilchrist ($81.6 million settlement on behalf of former clients of Jenkens & Gilchrist in connection with illegal tax shelters); In re MedPartners Securities Litigation ($65 million); In re Kmart 401(k) Litigation ($11.75 million). Whatley Drake & Kallas has gained a national reputation for its aggressive litigation style and its quality legal work. A significant aspect of the Firm's resources is its ability to try a complex case. One of the Firm's founding partners, Joe R. Whatley, Jr., is an experienced trial lawyer and is one of the few lawyers representing plaintiffs in complex class action litigation who has tried a class action case to verdict. He won a $1.28 billion jury verdict on behalf of a class of cattle ranchers against Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc. in Pickett v. Tyson Fresh Meats, Inc., No. 96-A-1103 -N (M.D. Ala.). Mr. Whatley also won what was at the time the largest wrongful death verdict in Louisiana history in Dunn v. Consolidated Rail Corp., 890 F. Supp. 1262 (M.D.La. 1995). Mr. Whatley's experience in this regard has made him a highly sought after member of plaintiffs' leadership groups in numerous complex and multidistrict litigations. WD&K and its partners have also gained a national reputation for their consistent dedication to the interests of their clients by achieving results which include both compensation to victims of wrongdoing and significant industry reforms.
