Consumer Protection Litigation

O’Hagan Meyer’s Consumer Protection Litigation Team has developed a deep understanding of state and federal consumer protection laws, while keeping a focus on recent trends and advising clients on successful strategies to avoid litigation.  If our clients become embroiled in litigation, our team’s substantive and extensive litigation and trial experience makes us well positioned to develop strategies for successful resolution of individual claims, class-action claims and government enforcement actions, including actions brought by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the State Consumer Protection Division.

Members of our team have a depth of experience successfully representing local, regional and national clients in state and federal courts. In addition, we provide counsel and risk management strategies related to and defending cases involving: FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act); FDCPA (Fair Debt Collections Practices Act): TILA(Truth in Lending Act), Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Protection Act.

Our attorneys represent clients in matters throughout the United States, defending high-profile and high-exposure cases. We work closely with our clients to provide an early and ongoing assessment of the value and risk of the case, and to develop a litigation strategy that considers not only that particular case, but also the impact on the business as a whole.  We have a proven track record of defeating putative class actions at the certification stage and in resolving high exposure claims before they get there.
