Class Action Lawsuits
The lawyers of The Watton Law Group are currently involved in several class action lawsuits both locally and nationally. Our attorneys advocate on behalf of consumers who have been wronged.
A class action is a legal device allowing one person to sue as a plaintiff on behalf of all persons likely to have experienced the same injury. Class actions are often brought against corporations, such as telephone companies and banks, when they overcharge or otherwise mistreat many customers in the same way. They are brought against the manufacturers of defective products. They may also be brought against a company or its officers on behalf of a class of shareholders in the company.
Consumer Class Action Lawsuits
Consumers who have been the victims of fraudulent conduct, unfair business practices, data breaches/identity theft, and faulty products have recourse to sue the companies responsible for these products, practices, and events. Unfortunately, corporations sometimes resort to unfair business practices, cheating consumers out of seemingly small amounts of money, reasoning that the individual consumer will be powerless to take on the large manufacturer in a court of law. By employing the class action device, consumers can join their claims together and have a proper mechanism to challenge this corporate misconduct.
Watton Law Group has the necessary experience to litigate consumer class action cases. We litigate these cases across the country and against a wide array of industries.

Wage and Hour Class Action Lawsuits
There are numerous federal and state laws dictating how and when employees are to be paid overtime, which employees are salaried employees exempt from overtime laws and other wage related issues. These laws are frequently the basis of class action suits against employers alleging misclassification of employees as overtime exempt or independent contractors, failure to pay overtime wages, and failing to pay for all hours worked. Some of the most common wage and hour claims include:

Antitrust Class Action Lawsuits
Antitrust laws are designed to ensure that markets are free from unlawful price-fixing, market division, monopolization or other attempts to restrain trade. Victims of antitrust violations include the individual consumer who is forced to purchase a good or a service at a price higher than would otherwise prevail in the marketplace. Similarly, small business owners and other competitors of the antitrust violator are also often harmed because the antitrust violator frequently achieves its unlawful aims by putting such competitors out of business in order to monopolize the market.

Securities Class Action Lawsuits
A securities class action is a lawsuit filed by a person or an entity who purchased a company’s debt or equity securities and who has suffered economic injury due to the disclosure or lack of adequate disclosure of information about the company in violation of the securities laws.
