Class Action "Super Firm" Gets New Name


CHICAGO , March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The national consumer class action law firm previously known as Edelson McGuire, LLC has announced that it is changing its name to Edelson LLC.

Though the name is new, the firm's commitment to protecting consumers in the age of emerging technology remains unchanged. Twice dubbed the "Most Feared and Loathed Law Firm in Silicon Valley" by Business Insider, the firm will continue to represent the vanguard of internet privacy litigation, challenging the ways businesses collect and use private customer information and reforming the way entire industries operate in the digital space.

And it's growing. Managing Partner Jay Edelson has announced that the 20-attorney firm plans on adding to its growing ranks of consumer advocates. "Over the short-term, we'll be adding a couple of senior associates who will focus specifically on appellate advocacy," Edelson explained. "In September, we're adding three new associates from last year's summer class. And our incoming summer class is the largest we've had to date."   

Edelson litigators have enjoyed numerous significant victories in the past several years, including settling some of the most expansive technology class actions in the country and achieving landmark appellate decisions that have defined the rights of millions of consumers and homeowners.

About Edelson LLC: Edelson LLC is a commercial litigation and class action law firm with attorneys in Illinois, California, and Colorado. The firm's lawyers have been recognized as leaders in these fields by state and federal legislatures, national and international media groups, the courts and their peers. They have testified before the United States Senate on class action issues and have repeatedly been asked to work on federal and state legislation and policy issues involving banking, cellular telephony and consumer privacy. Their class settlements are collectively worth over one billion dollars and have changed the consumer protection policies of numerous industries.
