Class Action

Our partners have served as class counsel on a variety of matters, including cases brought under California’s Unfair Competition Law, Consumer Legal Remedies Act, Private Attorney General Act, as well as common law fraud claims, and applicable State and Federal labor regulations. Representative matters include actions against vehicle manufacturers for concealing defective parts, food manufacturers for false and misleading advertising and labeling, employers for misclassifying their employees as independent contractors or as salary-exempt, consumer electronic manufacturers for intentionally misleading customers about the quality and capability of their products, credit card and phone companies illegally charging or assessing fees and penalties, among others. Recent successes include: settlement against Mercedes-Benz for defective seat heaters generating approximately $72 million in recovery for affected consumers; settlement against Quorn Foods for mislabeling a product that contained mold as being "similar to or like" a mushroom, generating up to $120 million in potential recovery to the class.
