Consumer Litigation Section

The purposes of the Consumer Litigation Section are to enhance the skills of Minnesota lawyers practicing in the area, and to serve as a liaison with other parts of the MSBA, the judiciary and the public on consumer financial litigation related issues and activities.

Consumer financial litigation encompasses a wide variety of subjects, including claims under common law, state and federal statutes, and regulations concerning consumer protection.

Generally, the Consumer Litigation Section aims to elevate the practice of law – in both state and federal courts – regarding typical consumer transactions, credit cards, mortgages, loans, and the like, involving typical players, such as consumers, banks, title companies, lenders, brokers, and other businesses.

This section will touch upon individual consumer claims, as well as government enforcement actions and class action claims. This Section also aims to educate its members  about current trends in consumer financial litigation.
