Plaintiffs’ Rights

The Plaintiffs’ Rights Practice Group at Dilworth Paxson represents plaintiffs in intellectual property disputes, class actions (related to antitrust, securities, and consumer protection), qui tam (whistleblower) litigation, wage and hour litigation, and representation of bankruptcy trustees. The representation of plaintiffs may be as primary counsel, co-counsel, or referring counsel. The Plaintiffs’ Rights Practice Group allows the Firm to leverage its experienced and proficient litigation attorneys and its network of contacts to obtain recoveries for injured parties. Dilworth’s work on behalf of injured plaintiffs dates back to Harold Kohn, who pioneered the modern-day class action lawsuit.

Search Tips

Our Web site's search function employs a variety of techniques to help you make the most of your queries. In this tips section we use square brackets [ ] to signal queries, so [antitrust and litigation] is one query, while [antitrust] and [litigation] are two.

  • Exact phrases: Eliminate unnecessary search results by surrounding your search phrase with quotation marks. Placing ["project finance"] in quotes will return specific results and discard additional results that simply have the words "project" and "finance" peppered on a page.
  • Wildcard symbol: If you're not exactly sure how a piece of information you want is phrased, use the following symbol (*) as a word root expander. A search for [child*] will find not only "child," but also results with words like "children" and "childhood."
