National Plaintiffs’ Law Firm Helping Institutions, Businesses, and Individuals
Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky Wotkyns LLP is a national litigation law firm that represents institutions, businesses and individuals in complex legal claims. For more than two decades, our lawyers have helped clients recover damages in fraud, whistleblower, employment, employee benefits, and business matters. We represent companies, individuals, and classes of plaintiffs in complex litigation across the country from our offices in Texas, California, and Arizona.
Class Actions / Mass Actions
Class actions involve cases in which plaintiffs have similar fact scenarios and legal arguments against the same defendants. Class actions create a more efficient, streamlined process that allows plaintiffs to share the costs of asserting their legal rights.
Our law firm handles a broad range of class action and mass action cases in jurisdictions throughout the United States, including:
- Antitrust class actions
- ERISA class actions
- Pension and 401(k) class actions
- Consumer class actions
- Financial services class actions
- Employment class actions
- Construction defect class actions
- Defective products class actions
- Dangerous drugs and medical devices class actions
- Disability access class actions
- Elder abuse class actions
- Nursing home class actions
Litigation for Public and Private Entities
Many institutional clients have unique processes by which their legal interests must be protected. Their legal claims, therefore, require a comprehensive understanding of the organization’s legal obligations and position in the marketplace. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing a variety of institutional clients, including:
- Publicly-traded companies
- Financial Institutions
- Health Insurance companies
- Public entities
- Public pension funds
When businesses need experienced, aggressive, and savvy trial lawyers who understand both the business needs and the ins and outs of plaintiffs’ litigation, they turn to Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky Wotkyns LLP. We represent corporate clients in all types of plaintiffs’-side litigation including:
- Banking litigation
- Business, corporate & partnership disputes
- Business torts
- Complex commercial litigation
Securities Fraud and Consumer Protection
Businesses and individuals lose billions of dollars in numerous types of schemes. Our attorneys work to recover damages arising from fraud in a wide array of matters, such as:
Employee Benefits / ERISA
Employee benefits, such ERISA pension plans, are subject to complex regulations governing allowable fees, prudent investment vehicles, taxation, termination, and rollover. Our law firm helps employees recover their hard earned retirement benefits in 401(k) plan litigation.
Employment Law and Civil Rights
Employees have important rights. When these rights are violated, employees may have a valid claim for back pay, lost wages, penalties, and other damages. Because employers often exhibit a pattern of wrongful conduct, our attorneys often handle employment claims as class actions. We have substantial experience in litigating claims involving:
- Failure to pay wages, overtime, commissions
- Sexual harassment
- Wrongful termination
- Reasonable accommodation
- Disability rights (ADA)
- Family medical leave act
Under the “False Claims Act”, whistle-blowers (people who report illegal or unethical conduct) are entitled to receive a portion of any moneys that are recovered on account of their whistle-blowing. Regularly, whistle-blowers are compensated at a rate of 20 to 25 percent of the total money recovered on account of information provided by the whistleblower.
Our attorneys work with whistle-blowers who report such unlawful conduct as:
Dangerous Products, Medical Devices and Drugs
Our products liability lawyers take legal action against manufacturers of the defective products that cause serious injuries and fatalities. Because dangerous products tend to injure multiple people, we often bring product liability claims as class actions.
