Our practice is specialized in six areas of class action litigation.
+The tools and experience to expose fraud
Banks are prohibited from making false or misleading statements about their services and charging hidden fees. Meanwhile, the advancing field of "Fintech" (financial technology) offers consumers a head spinning array of exotic and risky products that affect the way people borrow, make payments, and manage money.
Investment fraud involves deceptive acts or statements that lead investors to purchase or sell assets. When financial institutions or brokerage firms defraud investors, state and federal laws offer broad protection.
+Protecting your rights at work is work we love to do
Labor laws protect workers from illegal pay practices and working conditions. EKO represents workers when employers deny proper wages or working conditions. Our attorneys have represented workers in wage cases against the country's largest companies.
A common example of wage theft in the "gig economy" involves misclassifying employees as independent contractors. EKO fights for systemic changes that safeguard workers' rights to a fair workplace.
+Champions for a safe and transparent marketplace
Consumers have the right to know the products they buy are safe and the ads they see are truthful. Harmful products, bait and switch schemes, false advertising, and other schemes hurt both consumers and other companies that play by the rules. Consumer protection class actions ensure a safer, more transparent, and honest marketplace, thereby protecting consumers and their families.
+You control your identity
Companies that collect user data have an obligation to safeguard it. State and federal privacy laws impose strict penalties against companies that allow the release of user data through substandard security. Privacy laws also set standards for how companies can collect data, what they can collect, and how they share it. EKO prosecutes data breach cases as well as cases involving the illegal collection and sale of customers' private data.
+Serving survivors of abuse
Sexual abuse can involve a range of behavior, physical or verbal. Survivors may bring a civil claim for themselves, or if a minor, a parent or guardian may bring a claim on the survivor’s behalf. Survivors often seek monetary compensation for past and future medical treatment including therapy, damages for pain and suffering, and equitable relief, such as requiring that institutional defendants adopt policies and procedures to prevent and respond appropriately to reports of sexual abuse.
+Fighting for the dignity of our most vulnerable
All too frequently, skilled nursing facilities and assisted living facilities promise elderly people and their families that they will receive the nursing attention and care support they need to live comfortable and dignified lives. In reality, these facilities grossly underdeliver on those promises. The result is neglect, injury, indignity, and financial fraud. EKO fights against these predatory practices through class action lawsuits that seek financial compensation and corporate policy change to protect the elderly.
