CHICAGO – FeganScott is proud to announce that it has been named Law Firm of the Year in the consumer protection category at The National Law Journal’s 2023 Elite Trial Lawyers Awards. FeganScott was selected for its exemplary work serving as a powerful legal ally for consumers, notably in its case against TikTok, in which it secured a groundbreaking $92 million settlement last year.
“We’re honored to receive this prestigious recognition from The National Law Journal,” said Elizabeth Fegan, managing partner of FeganScott. “This achievement is a testament to our team’s collective expertise and unwavering commitment to pursuing justice on behalf of our clients.”
Since its inception in 2019, FeganScott has established itself as a trusted advocate for consumers across the nation, leading class action cases against corporate giants like Allergan, Hyundai and 3M. The firm made history last year after it secured a groundbreaking $92 million settlement in its case against TikTok. The settlement, one of the largest in data privacy class action cases, resolved claims that the popular video-sharing app illegally collected, used, and stored users’ data without their consent. In addition to creating a cash fund to be distributed among class members, the settlement required TikTok to create a data privacy training and compliance program for employees and contractors.
“As exemplified in our case against TikTok, the attorneys at FeganScott aren’t afraid to take on large corporations or industry players to demand accountability,” Fegan said. “Whether we’re fighting on behalf of individuals who’ve suffered damages or injury caused by a defective product or victims of identity theft or deceptive business practices, our team has the experience, skillset, and dedication needed to secure justice for our clients and implement impactful policy changes to protect future generations.”
