Unlike many firms who came late to TCPA litigation only after regulatory changes by the Federal Communications Commission, Severson & Werson has been counseling on and defending against TCPA claims almost since the statute was enacted in 1991. The breadth of the Firm’s knowledge on TCPA matters is matched only by its depth. Accordingly, Severson & Werson is uniquely qualified to counsel on TCPA matters, whether in counseling and advice, defending individual or class-action claims, or assisting in responding to regulatory ”civil investigative demands” or preparing petitions or comments to the regulatory agencies.
One of the most dangerous consumer protection statutes on the books, the TCPA carries a four-year statute of limitations and statutory damage provisions of between $500.00 and $1,500.00 per violation. Defending TCPA class action litigation can therefore quite literally be a “bet-the-company” proposition. We can help. Since the FCC broadened the rights of call-recipients to sue, we have been on the front line of defending individual and class-action TCPA claims. We believe that no other firm can boast the depth of TCPA defense experience and knowledge that ours can. Our Financial Services Practice Group includes a team of specialized litigators dedicated to defending these cases and helping clients navigate the TCPA’s treacherous regulatory waters.
Some of the largest banks and finance companies in the country have trusted Severson & Werson to counsel on their TCPA litigation and regulatory issues, and we have handled dozens of nationwide class actions on behalf of those clients. The Firm has served as national coordinating TCPA defense counsel for forward-thinking companies wanting to insure a cohesive strategy in handling the juggernaut of TCPA claims the regulatory agencies’ interpretations recently have created.
