Protecting And Enforcing The Rights Of Consumers, Employees And Businesses Nationwide

Edelson Lechtzin LLP is a national class action law firm based in suburban Philadelphia. Our experienced team of attorneys is dedicated to protecting and enforcing the rights of consumers, employees and businesses in collective litigation in cases involving anticompetitive business practices, ERISA retirement plans, unpaid wages and overtime claims, consumer fraud, federal securities fraud and insurance litigation across the country.

In most cases we represent our clients on a contingent fee basis, meaning we don’t get paid unless your case settles or you win at trial. Our clients run the gamut from individual consumers to large businesses. And we routinely take on some of the largest companies in the United States inside the courtroom. We are not afraid to go to trial if that is what it takes to help you get a fair resolution of your claim.

Understanding The Challenges Present In Complex Litigation

When we take on a case, we perform a thorough review to determine if there are other individuals, employees or consumers who may have similar claims. If we are able to uncover additional evidence of wrongdoing, we can file a class action lawsuit against the defendant. While this can help strengthen a claim, it also makes things much more complicated. The law firm that you choose to work with needs to know how to perform such an investigation, and build a comprehensive claim for relief.

Our practice is focused on these cases. Whether in state or federal court, we know what it takes to be successful when handling such legal matters. We have served as lead counsel on many class action matters throughout the United States, with positive results obtained for past clients in verdicts and settlements.

Thousands of pension plans are using outdated mortality tables to determine the value of pension benefits they are required to pay.
