Settlement Recovery

Settlement opportunities account for billions of dollars annually. They occur when courts order companies to pay damages due to their mistakes or unlawful actions that harm others. 


Unfortunately, businesses large and small are often denied the money they are entitled to because they don’t have experience negotiating with claims administrators—the people the courts hire to handle the payment of damages—or preparing the required documentation, data sets, or forms. MCAG specializes in helping our clients navigate settlements in the following areas:

  • Product/Anti-Competition: Claims where manufacturers engaged in antitrust or price-fixing;

  • Healthcare: For example, insurance claims were not paid correctly;

  • Pharmaceutical: Claims in which an organization overpaid for drugs purchased on behalf of its employees; and

  • Financial: Merchants overpaid interchange fees, or financial markets were manipulated by large banks, for example.

We’ve developed our expertise in settlement navigation through hard-won experience working with the nation’s preeminent class action litigators and settlement administrators. As a result of our nearly twenty years of experience, we are extremely familiar with the process of submitting, tracking, and reconciling all types of class action settlement claims.
