Deceptive Business Practices and Consumer Protection

Hausfeld lawyers have been at the forefront of fighting deceptive business practices by protecting consumers, farmers, municipalities, third party payors, and honest businesses. From false and misleading advertising to defective and dangerous products, Hausfeld lawyers have litigated dozens of class and individual actions and represented millions of impacted consumers and other entities in this practice area.

Through these actions, we have successfully enforced consumer rights under federal and state laws, resulting in the recovery of billions of dollars in compensation and benefits for class members. In addition, Hausfeld's efforts have led to meaningful corporate reform through injunctive relief and beneficial changes to fraudulent business practices.

For example, we serve on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in the In re: Volkswagen “Clean Diesel” Litigation and have helped to recover over $14 billion for U.S. consumers and we are currently representing tens of thousands of Volkswagen purchasers in Europe, as well.  We have also obtained significant monetary and other relief for purchasers of defective or falsely advertised products (Wolph v. Acer America Corp. (defective laptops); In re Sony PS3 “Other OS” Litig. (PlayStation gaming systems); Mouzon v. Radiancy, Inc. (NoNo hair removal product); In re Tyson Foods, Inc., Chicken Raised Without Antibiotics Consumer Litig. (antibiotic-free chicken)); victims of unfair and deceptive business practices (Brown v. Transurban (USA), Inc. (excessive fines from toll lanes); Radosti v. Envision EMI, LLC (student inauguration program); In re Warner Music Group Corp. Digital Downloads Litig. (musician royalty rates); and domestic agricultural producers (In re Honey Transshipping Litigation; In re Monsanto Company Genetically-Engineered Wheat Litig.).
