We aim to right the world of consumer justice by actively engaging consumers online as the top source for news, resources and opportunities. Why? Because we believe consumers should come out on top! We’re here to help consumers find, submit claims for, and receive compensation for every class action settlement they qualify to participate in.



Scott Hardy President & CEO

Scott Hardy formed Top Class Actions in 2008 because he saw a need to fill the void in the endless search for class action lawsuit news on the Internet. The average consumer will find countless trash sites, place holders and confusing legal websites when searching for class action lawsuits and class action lawsuit settlements. Once you stumble upon a website dedicated to such information, the navigation can be tedious at best or completely bewildering at worst. Top Class Actions fixed that and continues to report on the latest class action news as it breaks. Scott continues to transform the world of class action lawsuit settlement notification and class action lawsuit advertising by implementing new and innovative ways to connect consumers to class action settlements and attorneys who can provide the legal help they need.
