Consumer Statutory Protection Claims and Class Actions

Gallagher Sharp has significant experience advising clients and litigating matters filed pursuant to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act, and similar consumer laws and statutes. Our attorneys have successfully defended both individual and class claims in state and federal court alleging violations of a wide variety of consumer protection laws. We have had success with early resolution, motion practice at the pleading stage, summary judgment motions, and alternative dispute resolutions. We have routinely defeated putative class actions in motion practice.

Our attorneys advise clients on the intricacies of consumer protection laws and craft policies to ensure compliance. Development and implementation of policies is the first defense against litigation and can mitigate potential liability. We understand the complexity of consumer statutes and closely monitor legal developments, including the latest court decisions, which impact our clients, consumers, and the industry.

We pride ourselves on having attorneys with the experience to manage the challenges of consumer actions and seek to provide effective and efficient legal solutions both pre-suit and in litigation.
