Sexual Abuse and Assault Victims
FeganScott is on the front lines of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, fighting for survivors of sexual assault, abuse and harassment.
From sexual coercion to sexual violence, we take the side of the survivor and fight for the rights of women and men who have been victimized by individuals or institutions. We also represent people who have suffered sexual harassment and discrimination at all levels of employment — from chief operating officers to employees who work on the factory floor.
FeganScott represents employees discriminated against based on race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, physical disability, and age by employers. Discriminatory practices include bias in hiring, promotion, job assignment, termination, compensation, retaliation, and various types of harassment. FeganScott regularly appears before the EEOC, state departments of human rights, and courts on a class and individual basis on behalf of victims of discrimination.
Consumers today are at risk of identity thieves, scam artists and ne’er-do-wells, but the sad reality is that consumers are also at risk in their day-to-day lives at the hands of corporate America. Our attorneys represent consumers in a wide range of issues, holding corporate America accountable for its behavior in the marketplace.
Antitrust laws are designed to protect competition in the marketplace, benefitting consumers by keeping prices low, while ensuring the quality and choice of goods and services is high. When those core intentions are violated, FeganScott works to ensure that competition is restored, and consumers and other payors get the best possible prices and return of overcharges.
Accidents disrupt lives. Whether it’s a vehicle, pedestrian, bicyclist, or workplace accident, being unable to conduct your regular activities has a huge impact on your quality of life. FeganScott is here to help put things back in place and hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligent actions.
If you have been severely injured in an accident by no fault of your own, FeganScott will work hard to ensure that you receive appropriate compensation. Our team will collaborate with you to decide the best course of action— whether it is a settlement or trial in front of a judge or jury—to identify a legal remedy that works for you. Each accident case is different, so we don’t have a cookie-cutter approach.
FeganScott attorneys have a long and successful track record of representing local and state governments in high-stakes litigation. Our legal expertise and bench-strength help governments take on cases against well-funded and well-represented corporate defendants, among others. Our experience includes cases such as accounting malpractice, eminent domain, antitrust, parens patriae actions, and others.
FeganScott represents consumers and third-party payors, such as union health and welfare funds, that are overcharged by well-heeled pharmaceutical manufacturers and retail pharmacies. Brand-name pharmaceutical manufacturers consider it a cost of doing business to fight to keep less-expensive generics off the market.
Manufacturers and retailers also use hidden pricing to manipulate the costs of both common and life-saving drugs, putting profits over lives. FeganScott helps consumers take their power back by fighting to ensure the most cost-effective drugs and treatments are available at fair and transparent prices
Part of being successful at work and in the marketplace is knowing that your rights are protected when you come forward against an employer, client or company. We believe people who suspect criminal acts or cover-ups should feel empowered to say something. Our lawyers represent whistleblowers in qui tam lawsuits brought under the False Claims Act and similar federal and state laws.
