About Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP

Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP’s consumer class action litigators have a well-established track record of success in defeating putative consumer class actions. The team has obtained numerous victories in consumer class actions, at trial and in advance of trial, through dismissals with prejudice at the pleadings stage, summary judgment motions, voluntary dismissals by plaintiffs after obtaining key admissions in discovery and countless denials of class certification. According to The American Lawyer, the team has achieved “bet-the-company wins for clients across the country.”  Our lawyers are experienced in key legal areas, such as the enforceability of class action waivers in arbitration agreements; standing to pursue consumer protection claims, technology and privacy; and the efficacy of consumer disclosures. They appear regularly before states’ attorneys general, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and Securities and Exchange Commission, all of which affect class action defense.
