Consumer Class Action

Led by former New York State Attorney General G. Oliver Koppell, our attorneys regularly represent individuals in class actions targeting false and deceptive business practices.

Federal and state laws protect consumers against fraudulent and deceptive business practices, but individual claims are frequently small. Class actions are a critical tool to enforce consumer rights where claims are too small to pursue individually. Class actions that we have brought in the past have resulted class awards in the millions of dollars.

We are currently engaged in class action litigation on several fronts including:

  • State and federal lawsuits enforcing New York laws that protect small depositors against garnishment of their bank accounts;
  • A class action challenging the alleged deceptive practices of Daily Fantasy Sports contests (FanDuel and DraftKings)

Past class action include the successful representation of cell phone subscribers subject to a deceptive pricing scheme, a federal class action targeting deceptive credit repair practices and the successful representation of tenants in assisted living facilities who were overcharged for rent and services. We also resolved a class action against the Walgreen Company and its subsidiary, Duane Reade, for its failure to follow the terms New York's "Bottle Bill" which allows people to return cans and bottles for a five cent deposit fee. Our efforts in this case were the subject of a New York Times article.
