Our Firm

Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP was founded in 1993 with one purpose: to help victims with claims of fraud and negligence that adversely impact a broad group of people. The firm initially focused on class action and other types of complex, multi-party litigation always representing plaintiffs/victims. As the firm grew, it expanded its scope while staying true to its mission of taking on important cases that implicate the public interest, and now represents plaintiffs including investors, consumers, inventors, workers, the environment, governments, whistleblowers and others.

We are one of the nation’s leading class action law firms, and have earned an international reputation for excellence and innovation in ground-breaking litigation against large corporations.


OUR FOCUS. Our main focus is to represent plaintiffs/victims in securities and investment fraud, product liability, tort, antitrust, consumer fraud, employment, whistleblower, intellectual property, environmental, and employee pension protection cases. Our firm is particularly skilled at managing multi-state and nationwide class actions through an organized, coordinated approach that implements an efficient and aggressive prosecutorial strategy in order to place maximum pressure on the defendant.

WE WIN. We believe excellence stems from a commitment to try each case, vigorously represent the best interests of our clients, and obtain the maximum recovery. Our opponents know we are determined and tenacious and they respect our skills and recognize our track record of achieving top results.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT. We achieve results—our track record proves it. While many class-action or individual plaintiff cases result in large legal fees and no meaningful result for the client, Hagens Berman finds ways to return real value.

A NATIONWIDE REACH. The scope of our practice is truly nationwide. We have flourished through our network of offices in nine cities across the United States, including Seattle, Boston, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Our reach is not limited to the cities where we maintain offices. We have cases pending in courts across the country, with substantial activity in California, New York, Washington, Arizona, Illinois, and Idaho.
