For companies that serve consumers, class actions are not a matter of if – but when. Maschoff Brennan understands that class actions are more than just a short-term financial threat; they can be a serious enterprise-wide threat to a company’s operations, reputation, brand quality, and product identity in the marketplace. Our attorneys provide clients with comprehensive, effective strategies that mitigate such risks from day one. Maschoff Brennan attorneys offer a complete and comprehensive analysis of the myriad issues clients may face when dealing with class actions.

Our attorneys serve as legal and business advisors to our clients in many industries, including aviation, consumer goods and services, food and beverage, banking, mortgage origination, and servicing, waste and recycling disposal services, manufacturing, and computer equipment. Our clients frequently call upon us to review and revise company policies and procedures. Such proactive measures can minimize litigation risks and at the same time enhance business operations.

We regularly defend financial services institutions in consumer class action litigation. Our lawyers have represented full-service banks, mortgage loan originators and servicers, and other consumer financial services institutions in putative national, multistate, and state class actions involving claims alleging violation of federal and state statutes, as well as state common law. Our lawyers have significant knowledge of the intricacies of the substantive laws that govern consumer financial services institutions and a deep understanding of the business climates in which our clients operate.

We have considerable experience defending clients in class actions asserting claims under federal and state consumer protection laws across the U.S. Maschoff Brennan also defends clients against claims relating to defective products, breach of warranty, false or misleading advertising, failure to disclose, misrepresentations of purpose or use, inadequate service or support, and other consumer fraud issues. In addition, our lawyers have experience defending consumer protection actions seeking damages while also defending parallel government enforcement proceedings and defending actions arising from product recalls.
