In this chapter, Jenner & Block Partners Jeremy M. Creelan, Kenneth K. Lee and Jerome L. Epstein address several key aspects of litigation involving claims by or on behalf of consumers.  The authors discuss the issues litigants often face in consumer protection cases at various stages in federal court and summarize significant federal statutes that bring about either federal agency enforcement actions or claims by private litigants. The chapter pays particular attention to the enforcement of these statutes by the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Department of Justice.The chapter is part of a larger work that offers guidance on all phases of litigation, including investigation, pleadings, motions, discovery, trials, appeals, settlement and enforcement of judgments.
