Peiffer Wolf Carr & Kane represents businesses and consumers in class action lawsuits against corporations and large financial industry companies around the world that engage in anti-competitive practices such as price fixing, market manipulation, market division, bid rigging, and unfair competition. When corporations conspire to fix prices, rig markets, divide markets or seek improper competitive advantages, they increase their profits at the expense of consumers and other businesses that try to compete fairly. Such corporations also violate the antitrust and unfair competition laws designed to ensure that businesses fairly compete with each other in our market economy.
We seek to hold corporations that engage in anticompetitive behavior liable to the consumers and fair competitors they victimize. Federal and state laws prohibit anticompetitive conduct and unfair business practices that harm fair competitors and consumers, drive up prices, and distort markets. Examples of such anticompetitive, unlawful practices include: price fixing; market manipulation; bid rigging; market (or territory) division; unfair competition.
We aggressively prosecute anticompetitive practices in a wide range of industries, from finance, commodities and precious metals to medical products and oil and gas. We litigate antitrust cases against some of the largest companies in the world.

We work almost all of our cases under contingent fee arrangements. If we take your case under a contingent fee arrangement, you won’t owe our firm any legal fees unless we are able to recover money for you.
Our contingent fee is either based on a percentage of the amount we recover for our client (which generally ranges from one-third of the recovery up to 40%) or the amount of work we perform on your case, multiplied by our current hourly rates. The percentage we will charge in your case depends on the type of case, when your case resolves, and whether you request us to advance litigation costs (including filing fees, postage, expert witness fees, etc.). Generally, the percentage is higher if we are advancing litigation costs and your case does not resolve early.
In most litigation matters, it is extremely difficult – practically impossible – to predict how long or how many hours will it take to resolve a particular case. Every case is different in terms of the complexity. For instance, a simple breach of contract matter is likely to get resolved significantly faster than a complicated lawsuit involving multiple parties, numerous claims, complex issues of law, and extensive discovery. The other parties’ cooperation, the attorneys’ schedules, as well as the number of other cases on the court’s docket are also the factors.
