Consumer Fraud Litigation

Strategic Defense

The landscape of consumer lawsuits is in constant flux. Allegations of fraudulent or deceptive business practices not only grab media headlines, but they can also signify litigation troubles for banks, financial institutions, insurance companies, educational institutions, communications companies — just about any business focused on the sale of services or products to consumers.

Clients turn to Husch Blackwell’s Consumer Fraud Litigation team to defend class action and multiplaintiff claims of fraud or unfair trade practices. We develop creative strategies to defeat motions for class certification and to otherwise gain outright dismissals of claims. We stay abreast of the latest trends and find new ways to help our clients avoid litigation, but when necessary, our team of experienced trial lawyers is ready to go the distance to protect our clients’ rights.

Our recent consumer fraud action includes the following accomplishments:

  • Favorable jury verdict for nationally known private sector college facing hundreds of claims for consumer fraud and unfair trade practices in several jurisdictions.
  • Dismissal of two putative class action cases alleging failure to disclose and deceptive marketing practices against consumer lending client.
  • Favorable settlement in a putative class action claim against a national bank involving allegations of reordering transactions to create tens of millions of dollars in excess overdraft and other fees.
  • Dismissal of putative class action case against an automobile dealership alleging that charging of fees constituted unauthorized practice of law.
  • Defending a nationally known computer rental company in putative class action involving alleged violations of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
