An agreement to arbitrate, which contains a class action waiver, can be an effective tool to help prevent small or moderate consumer claims from becoming class action lawsuits. Class consumer litigation, particularly that utilizing the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (hereinafter “FDUTPA”), has become en vogue over the last several years. As these types of class claims become more popular, it is more important to properly protect your business with well drafted agreements. It is also important to ensure that none of your agreements, if multiple agreements are necessary to complete a transaction, have conflicting terms.
