    Claims scenarios

    Collection Agent: A collection agent uses robot dialing and does not scrub for cell phones. Calling system dials a cell phone number multiple times. Owner of the cell phone files suit against agent for TCPA violation. Each call is an individual violation. This practice often times leads to class action status.

    Consultant: A consultant provides a strategy to a client in order to attract more business. The consultant failed to get accurate information of the demographics of the area. The client relies on the faulty advice and the business does not grow. The client then sues, alleging loss of income due to improper fact verification and misrepresentation.

    Property Manager: A property manager was contracted by the owner to manage a retail space. Tenants did not renew their leases as the property manager did not upkeep the property properly. The owner sued the property manager for negligence and breach of contract, alleging loss of income due to his lack of maintaining the property.

    Phishing Email: All 27 employees of a financial consulting firm received a phishing email. One of them clicked on the malicious link and entered their credentials, allowing the cyber criminal to pirate their email account and access clients’ personal identification and confidential information. Digital forensics were needed to determine how the breach occurred and its scope and legal counsel was required to determine how the firm should respond. The affected individuals were notified and provided credit monitoring and case management services.
