Competitive markets are at the heart of the U.S. economy. Kessler Topaz helps protect competition against those who would curtail choices, control prices or otherwise interfere with fair markets.
Help For Homebuyers
Our RESPA (Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act) Litigation Practice is nationally known for actions that challenge unfair lending and related insurance practices. We have been selected as lead or co-lead counsel in cases against lenders and mortgage servicers that:
- Refer borrowers to private mortgage insurers in return for kickbacks or fee-sharing
- Force-place borrowers into grossly over-priced homeowners or flood insurance in return for kickbacks
In recent RESPA litigation against 13 major national lenders, we have recovered tens of millions on behalf of affected borrowers and have several actions pending.
Maximizing Antitrust Recovery
Clients look to Kessler Topaz for experienced representation in complex antitrust cases. In addition, courts throughout the country regularly appoint us to leadership positions in actions involving anticompetitive behavior in key industries.
Our ability to transform economic and financial data into compelling advocacy has led to significant and timely recoveries for our clients. For example, in In re Flonase Antitrust Litigation, a case involving a drug manufacturer’s attempt to block generic medication from entering the market, we achieved a $150 million settlement after discovery was closed and trial was imminent.
