Winning On Arbitration-Friendly Turf
Court observers have recognized Heins Mills & Olson, P.L.C., for groundbreaking advocacy. An example is the landmark decision we obtained against Comcast from the First Circuit, historically an arbitration-friendly court, invalidating class action bans in cable TV subscriber agreements.
Paul Bland, an attorney with trial lawyers for Public Justice in Washington with extensive expertise in challenging class waivers in consumer arbitration agreements, said it was an important decision on arbitration law. A commentator in The National Law Journal said, "Consumer lawyers have lauded the court's decision...as the first to recognize that the bans deprive plaintiffs of the ability to exercise their statutory rights under federal antitrust law."
A Reputation For Skillful Advocacy
Among judges, clients and peers, we, enjoy a reputation for aggressive and skillful advocacy in antitrust litigation of national and international importance. For example, the judge presiding over the multidistrict litigation in In re Monosodium Glutamate Antitrust Litigation said of our work as co-lead counsel: "I'll make no bones about this, I think this is as fine a job of plaintiff lawyering as I've ever seen."
