(“Heffler”) is the pioneer in class action and mass tort settlement administration, with more than 45 years’ experience in the management and administration of some of the most complex settlements in the country. Beginning in the 1960s, Heffler initiated class action claims administration and mass tort claims management and created many of the methods and procedures used by most administrators today. Heffler was responsible for developing the first electronic claim form and was the first administrator to use “postcard checks” for distribution, eliminating the need for envelopes and thereby saving the class money on both printing and postage. Heffler has successfully managed and disbursed settlement funds in more than 1,000 cases, including some of the largest settlements of all time. We have paid claimants billions of dollars in settlement funds and distributed several hundred million notices. Our extensive experience as a claims administrator, along with our training as certified public accountants, enables us to create a specifically tailored claim review program ensuring that every member of the staff working on the engagement understands all of their individual responsibilities.
