Pursuing the Largest and Most Complex Cases in the United States
Crueger Dickinson was formed to excel in the largest cases with the highest stakes. Since its founding, it has lived up to that goal. Within months of forming the firm, the firm’s founders, Charles Crueger and Erin Dickinson, won a federal court trial on behalf of a certified class of thousands of pension holders where potentially over a billion dollars is ultimately at stake. Just months later, the firm was retained by a majority of the county governments in Wisconsin, as well as other county governments in eighteen states throughout the United States, to pursue the manufacturers and distributors of prescription opioids over the nationwide public health epidemic caused by those dangerous drugs. And when these opioid cases were consolidated with thousands of others in a federal court in Ohio – making it one of the largest and most complex cases in the history of the United States history – our firm was selected to lead that nationwide litigation. The firm is also fighting those who have contaminated drinking water, violated federal pension laws to deny benefits owed to pension holders, misclassified their workers as independent contractors to avoid complying with state laws, designed and sold defective consumer products, made false and misleading statements in advertising, and misrepresented the safety of addictive products such e-cigarettes and vaping products.
