DiCello Levitt & Casey has arrived.
We represent individual and commercial plaintiffs in a broad range of matters, including class action, mass tort, catastrophic injury, civil rights, and complex commercial litigation.
Our attorneys have always shared a passion for fighting for justice.
Now we share a firm: DiCello Levitt & Casey.
DiCello Levitt & Casey is a different kind of law firm – one that combines excellence in class action, mass tort, catastrophic injury, civil rights, and commercial litigation. Practicing nationwide – and internationally – from offices in Chicago and Cleveland, we are an aggressive, attentive, and creative plaintiffs’ firm whose work speaks for itself – billions of dollars in recoveries in some of the highest-profile matters in U.S. history.
Revered by clients and respected by defense counsel, our team gets results.
DiCello Levitt & Casey represents individuals who have suffered catastrophic personal injuries, consumers who have been harmed by defective products and false advertising, small businesses harmed by corporate wrongdoing, state and local governments pursuing claims of corporate misconduct that affect their citizens, and institutional investors, hedge funds, and private equity funds in securities and other financial litigation. They all share a common thread – they have suffered injustice and they rely on us to make things right. It’s a responsibility we accept with passion, tenacity, and empathy.
We Mean Business.
When negotiations fail to produce justice for our clients, we are exceptionally confident in our ability to achieve it in the courtroom, where our pedigree, aggressiveness, and creativity is unparalleled among plaintiffs’ firms.
We champion the rights of individuals and groups that have suffered life-changing injuries or economic losses as a result of intentional or negligent conduct.
Unencumbered by conflicts and unintimidated by the most powerful corporate entities, when businesses suffer economic harm because of corporate negligence, fraud, or other misconduct, we fight to make them whole.
Our Team Wins.
We understand that for our clients, litigation is their last resort. We also know that our proven ability to try cases to verdict on our clients’ behalf is one of our strongest qualities.
Class Action Litigation
DiCello Levitt & Casey represents plaintiffs in the largest and most consequential class action litigations. Our cases have ranged from the Volkswagen emissions scandal, to biotechnology litigation concerning genetically-modified crops, defective herbicides, and price-fixed genetic traits, to financial services litigation implicating securities, commodities, consumer credit, and insurance fraud. Whatever the subject matter, the common thread running through all of our engagements is our ability to successfully organize, strategize, prosecute, and resolve large class action cases. That ability is consistently recognized by courts, which routinely appoint us to act as lead counsel across a wide variety of class action cases, to advance, enforce, and protect the rights of tens of millions of Americans, and to have recovered billions of dollars on their behalf.
Catastrophic Injury Litigation
DiCello Levitt & Casey fights for those in need—a mission that takes on special meaning for us in representing people who have suffered catastrophic personal injuries. When those injuries are the result of malice or negligence, we aggressively pursue justice for our clients, battle-hardened by decades of successful trial experience. Our attorneys have collectively recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for individual plaintiffs, including the largest civil rights verdict in Ohio history.
Complex Commercial Litigation
For hedge funds, private equity firms, venture capital firms, investment funds, family offices, and other entities, DiCello Levitt & Casey pursues a wide range of complex commercial litigation matters. Our clients turn to us in high-stakes contract, securities, antitrust, intellectual property, and other business-related disputes. We understand that funds and emerging companies frequently have substantial value tied up in legal claims and we dedicate ourselves to unlocking that value and protecting their rights. Largely unencumbered by conflicts, we are free to employ our aggressive approach to litigation and trial strategy against the largest corporate defendants.
Drug & Device Litigation
DiCello Levitt & Casey has one of the most successful legal practices in the nation representing individuals harmed by defective drugs and medical devices. We represent people across the United States, suffering a wide range of injuries caused by pharmaceutical companies’ and medical device makers’ misconduct. With our established and proven track record in this area, DiCello Levitt & Casey’s attorneys are regularly selected by federal and state courts to lead the representation of plaintiffs in mass tort and product liability actions.
Public Client Litigation
State and local governments are able to prosecute claims and pursue remedies, on their citizens’ behalf, under their own states’ laws, as well as under federal law. Just like private parties, governmental entities can pursue remedies for their injuries in the court system, but the reality of tight budgets and overextended legal departments often makes that a more theoretical than practical option. Bridging that gap, DiCello Levitt & Casey offers public clients the most capable and aggressive assistance in responding to large-scale harm through legal action in fields including consumer, health care, and environmental law. In litigation with the highest stakes, we bring the full resources of a leading private-sector law firm to municipalities and partner with them to achieve optimal success.
Securities & Financial Fraud Litigation
DiCello Levitt & Casey represents institutional and individual investors in class action, opt-out, and shareholder derivative litigation. We advocate for the rights of investors whose assets are threatened by securities fraud and other financial misconduct. As a national leader in class action litigation, we stand ready to address such misconduct through Section 10b-5 actions, derivative and corporate governance litigation, and other claims brought under the federal securities and ERISA laws.
Our attorneys are practice leaders in their chosen fields and thought leaders within their respective bars. Please check back soon to learn more about them.
