Consumer Protection Defense

Lathrop Gage provides clients with nationwide litigation defense in consumer protection matters. The firm frequently defends clients in claims arising under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Truth in Lending Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and state consumer protection act claims. We have a successful record in litigation, mediation and representation before government agencies that enforce consumer-protection laws.

Consumer claim litigation often includes real or threatened class-action risk. Lathrop Gage has implemented several innovative strategies that have proven successful in resolving matters quickly, successfully and at a reasonable cost to the client.

Representative Experience:

  • Defended major telecommunications provider in 10 different jurisdictions in state and federal courts regarding an alleged online spam through integrated fax technology. All suits were resolved on favorable terms to the client.
  • Defended a leading financial services corporation against claims of unlawful advertisements. The case ultimately settled for less than half of the original amount sought by the plaintiff.
