With more than 35 years of class action litigation experience, Berman Tabacco is committed to bringing justice to the victims of fraudulent and abusive practices.  Over the years, the firm has prosecuted and obtained recoveries for consumers against various business such as banks, computer electronics and software companies, brokers and product manufacturers.

Most recently, Berman Tabacco is seeking to apply its extensive complex class action experience to fight against unlawful and predatory lending practices.  Berman Tabacco currently serves as lead counsel in several class actions brought on behalf of individuals arguing that their need for short-term cash has been exploited by illegal online payday lending schemes.  The cases allege that payday lenders issued loans in the name of sham companies established by Native American tribes, including American Web Loan and Plain Green, in a brazen attempt to dodge usury laws and charge unlawful triple-digit interest rates.

In addition to recovering monies for consumers, the firm has obtained ground-breaking decisions for the benefit of consumers, including in cases against Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley and Kwikset.  In the past, the firm has also used innovative means to hold companies responsible for alleged misconduct, such as in the Toys”R”Us and Unocal cases.
