Grant & Eisenhofer Launches Consumer Law Practice with New Chicago Office

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Delaware law firm Grant & Eisenhofer has hired Chicago attorney Adam Levitt, one of the most well-known consumer action lawyers in the country. Levitt will lead the Chicago office, with whose inauguration Grant & Eisenhofer would be having four offices nationwide.

Found in 1997, Grant & Eisenhofer is known for representing investors and shareholders in class action litigation against big companies. With Levitt joining the firm, it would now begin accepting consumer cases with a higher frequency.

The press release by Grant & Eisenhofer mentions Levitt has directed major consumer and business class actions, recovering more than $1 billion in the last two years for plaintiffs; currently litigating cases against ConAgra, DuPont, and Porsche and that he will be “expanding firm’s platform to include high-profile consumer litigation.”

The release further mentions, “The addition of a consumer class action practice broadens Grant & Eisenhofer’s notable litigation platform. G&E’s caseload over the last several years has grown to include bankruptcy, antitrust, whistleblower and false claims litigation – in the latter the firm has gained record recoveries from cases tied to deceptive foreclosure practices by banks as well as off-label marketing abuses by the pharmaceutical industry.

The co-managing directors of G&E, Stuart Grant and Jay Eisenhofer told the press, “We’re extremely happy to welcome Adam to the firm – his arrival gives us a major launchpad in establishing a high-profile, national consumer practice … Consumer class actions are a natural outgrowth of our historic practice litigating on behalf of investors. Adam’s success in representing consumers and business owners in high-stake cases, such as the genetically modified corn and rice litigation, adds an important dimension to our caseload.”
