Class Action Litigation

in Personal & Class Action

The attorneys of DiCello Levitt have represented plaintiffs in some of the largest and most consequential class action litigations in history. Our cases have ranged from the Volkswagen emissions scandal to biotechnology litigation concerning genetically-modified crops and defective herbicides, as well as complex, multistate automotive litigation; unfair competition litigation; and financial services litigation implicating securities, commodities, consumer credit, and insurance fraud. The common thread running through each of our engagements is our ability to successfully organize, strategize, prosecute, and resolve large class action cases. Recognized widely for our relentless and effective representation of victims, we are routinely appointed to act as lead counsel across a wide variety of class action cases to advance, enforce, and protect the rights of millions of Americans while recovering billions of dollars on their behalf.

We have developed particular strength in high-value class actions involving automotive industry defendants, having achieved successful results in the Volkswagen litigation and matters addressing a wide range of auto defects. In addition to our well-known work in drug and medical device cases, we also have emerged as a leader in class actions addressing harmful effects of biotechnology.
