Ausley McMullen has substantial experience in representing clients on matters involving government investigations and offers considerable skill in handling consumer class actions in state and federal court.
Our practice group is equipped with the expertise needed to work on government investigations and private claims involving the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practice Act (FDUTPA), CAN-SPAM, data breach, RICO, Medicaid fraud, false claims statutes, merger reviews, and price-fixing cases.
Our team serves as local counsel for national clients and their attorneys who seek our experience and insights into local practices and procedures. Recent examples include putative class actions involving bank overdraft fees, advertising claims regarding healthcare products, "green" claims, and product liability claims.
We guide clients with internal investigations, disclosures required by law (such as cases of data breaches), evaluation of advertising claims, and establishing compliance policies and systems to reduce the risk of government investigations and lawsuits by consumers or competitors.
