A History of Results in Class Actions and Complex Litigation

From consumer fraud and antitrust class actions to business litigation and product defect claims, Pearson, Simon & Warshaw, LLP (PSW) has achieved notable results in diverse legal arenas. Our nationally recognized law firm has offices in Los Angeles and San Francisco, and practices in state and federal courts in California and nationwide.

Class Action and Plaintiff Litigation

PSW's primary focus is plaintiff representation in large class action lawsuits. We are recognized as one of the premier class action law firms in the country, representing consumers, investors, employees and other individuals in the following cases:

  • Antitrust — We serve as lead or co-lead counsel in numerous cases alleging price-fixing, monopolization and market manipulation by major corporations with a global presence.
  • Consumer protection — We pursue damages for fraud, false advertising and other unfair business practices that prey upon consumers.
  • Defective products liability — We have sued manufacturers of automobiles, electronics, consumer goods and other dangerous and defective products.
  • Entertainment — We represent artists, producers, actors and directors who have been underpaid or deceived by companies in the entertainment industry.
  • Employment (wage and hour) — We hold employers accountable for unpaid overtime, meal or rest breaks or other systemic employment law violations.
  • Sexual Assault — We are investigating sex abuse claims against individuals and institutions including the Catholic Church, school districts, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and the entertainment industry.

See Notable Cases for examples of our past and pending litigation.

Business Litigation

Our attorneys have an extensive background representing the interests of individuals and businesses in:

  • Securities litigation — We represent investors, both in class and individual actions, defrauded by misrepresentations, insider trading, accounting fraud or stock manipulations.
  • Investment fraud litigation — We represent investors who have been harmed by investment fraud (e.g., Ponzi schemes), broker fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty—including unsuitable investment recommendations by brokers—and predatory lending practices. PSW attorneys also have extensive experience representing investors in FINRA securities arbitrations against brokerage firms.
  • Commercial/Business litigation — We represent individuals and businesses in contract, trade secret and transaction disputes, as well as business torts (e.g., tortious interference with a contract or prospective economic advantage).
  • Bankruptcy Trustees — We represent bankruptcy trustees and post-effective date liquidating trustees in adversary proceedings against former officers and directors, accountants and other professionals associated with bankrupt business entities.
