Dealing with Garen starts in the laning phase. Do NOT let him use his passive to heal. Use whichever ranged ability you have to poke him every time his heal comes up. Forcing Garen to back like any other champion denies him experience and gold, like any other champion. Do NOT let him get close enough to use judgement on you. This is just asking to get burst down and killed. Do NOT get close to him if you're under 50% health when he's level six. You will die, and Garen will laugh, then he'll go buy some armor.

Mid game is all about focus. Don't focus Garen. He's a tank. He spins, he ults, then he's useless. Just stop. Trist is the one killing you. Annie is initiating. Take them out. Garen can't do anything but watch it happen. He doesn't have a stun, since most take ignite rather than exhaust, he probably doesn't have a slow. Smart teams kill Garen last.

Late game is still about focus. Garen is not going to kill your entire team if you haven't fed him through the first parts of the game. Focus on the turret, not Garen. Sure, maybe he'll kill your tank, good that's the tank's job. If you lose your tank, but take an inhibitor turret, your tank will be happy.

That's all there is to it. Treat him like you're supposed to treat any tank. Give him wide berth and don't feed him.

*I'd like to edit by saying that I don't believe Garen is a tank in the LoL sense of the word. He's a tank in the sense that he's tanky, tough to kill.

Then everybody closes in on him to finish him. Done quickly and smooth, you should suffer at most two casualties.
This made me laugh pretty hard. Excellent strategy.

And tell your carry to stop building PD since it doesn't prevents any of Garen's major threat(silence, spin, sunfire, ult) or most skills in the game.

If they want to survive longer, have them build GA, Frozen Mallet, or whatever else that DO help reduces damage.

if you are going on like twisted treeline and its 3 v 3, against any tank its nice to have last whisper, gives 40% armor pen, if its a magic tank go for the void staff, more magic pen

Should work as long as everybody's packing Thornmail and Hextech Gunblades....
