Loeb & Loeb LLP, a multi-service law firm with over 300 attorneys and offices in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Nashville, Washington, DC, Beijing, and Hong Kong announced additions to the law firm.

Litigator Livia M. Kiser has signed on board to the firm’s Consumer Protection Defense Department as a partner in the Chicago office. Loeb & Loeb’s Consumer Protection Defense Department is made up of attorneys who defend government enforcement actions, investigations, and private class action lawsuits. These cases usually allege violations of consumer protection and unfair competition laws. Consumer protection is about enhancing consumer confidence in federal and state laws that protect against fraud, deception, and unfair business practices. Non-competition is about one party agreeing not to compete against another, leaving the consumer with fewer choices and possibly higher pricing for goods and services.
