Elizabeth A. Fegan is a partner in Hagens Berman’s Chicago office, where she has worked since 2004. Her practice includes a variety of complex commercial class-action cases in the areas of antitrust, consumer protection and product liability.
Her recent successes include a $35 million settlement in a nationwide antitrust class action on behalf of consumers against Babies ‘R Us and manufacturers of high-end strollers, high chairs, carriers and car seats, as well as a settlement that provides up to $25 million in refunds to purchasers of Blue Rhino propane tanks in a nationwide antitrust class action.
Ms. Fegan has successfully tailored creative results for the benefit of nationwide classes. For example, Ms. Fegan settled a nationwide class action alleging sexual harassment on behalf of 16,000 current and former female employees of a commercial property brokerage firm. In addition to requiring changes to human resources policies and procedures, the innovative settlement afforded class members the opportunity to participate in a stream-lined claims process that provides the potential for individual awards up to $150,000 per class member.
