Proving Wrongs, Protecting Rights.
Izard Nobel is a class action law firm that represents investors, employees, consumers, businesses and others hurt by corporate wrongdoing. Unlike many firms, we make sure you speak directly to a lawyer to get your questions answered quickly. We work with and for you to get the best possible results and we don’t get paid unless you recover money.
IN has a team of experienced class action lawyers, a commitment to quality work and a history of achieving outstanding results. IN pursues cases involving wrongdoing at some of the nation's biggest companies, including Tyco International, Time Warner, Merck, Enron, Campbell Soup, AT&T and others.
The firm has obtained recoveries totaling over $250 million in cases in which we served as lead or co-lead counsel. Our clients include large institutions as well as individual consumers. We have recovered pension savings and money lost on bad service and faulty products.
At Izard Nobel we divide our class action law practice areas into four areas: Investor Protection, such as stock fraud, mismanagement, excessive compensation and broker policies; Retirement Plans, including losses in retirement, 401(k) and health plans; Consumer Protection such as stock fraud, mismanagement, excessive compensation and broker policies; and Anti-Trust/Unfair Business, including unfair trade and competition, price fixing and monopolization.
Of course, the law, like life, does not always fall into neat categories. We’re always available to talk with you to help you determine where your potential case might fit.
FOCUS ON CLIENTS
Izard Nobel puts clients first. At no cost to you, we will actively investigate charges of stock fraud, corporate wrongdoing, retirement plan mismanagement, unfair business practices, or other improper behavior.
Throughout the course of a case, our class action attorneys continue to fight for the best possible results for our clients. We aren’t paid unless we recover for you. At the end of the case, our fees are decided by a judge and paid from any amount awarded to the whole class
We make communicating with clients a top priority. Prospective clients speak directly with a lawyer when they call to inquire about potential claims.
Through a web site and electronic newsletters, IN provides clients with a way to stay informed about their pending cases. Lawyers in the office give clients their direct lines and return calls personally – often to the surprise of prospective clients.
We want clients to stay informed and work with us to make important decisions in a case.
