Overviewprint

Our extraordinary team includes two former Directors of the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs – Tom Calcagni and Eric Kanefsky.  Both recently served as the State’s Governor-appointed and Senate-confirmed chief law enforcement official overseeing the State consumer fraud agency and all government matters brought under the State’s Consumer Fraud Act.  Supported by seasoned, former Deputy Attorneys General with significant experience working with and prosecuting on behalf of the Division of Consumer Affairs, our Consumer Law and Litigation team is unrivaled in terms of experience and inside know-how.

Because of our established relationships and credibility with those in the Division, and our unique knowledge of the agency’s inner workings, corporations and individuals regularly turn to us to navigate and defend enforcement actions brought by the Division of Consumer Affairs.  Because of our knowledge of the Consumer Fraud Act and extensive experience in overseeing hundreds of consumer fraud investigations and prosecutions, aggrieved consumers frequently retain us to prosecute matters on their behalf.

We represent both companies and consumers in a wide variety of consumer-related matters, including those involving claims of:

  • Investor fraud and misrepresentation
  • Product defect
  • Non-disclosure
  • Unconscionable business practices
  • State consumer fraud enforcement agencies
  • Federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
