Tropin and Furst, who were appointed by Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Michael Hanzman to oversee the plaintiffs’ attorneys in the consolidated litigation, bring a wealth of experience litigating complex class actions that they intend to use as they guide the effort to get victims of the Champlain Towers South collapse some economic relief.
