About Daniel Hutchinson
A partner in our San Francisco office, Mr. Hutchinson’s practice has focused on complex class and collective actions that advance the public interest. He is an advocate of under-represented and disadvantaged communities, and has also litigated cases involving unfair employment practices against immigrants.
Hutchinson has pursued a series of consumer protection cases against major banks and financial services providers. His efforts helped result in the largest monetary settlement in the history of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and ended harassing automated calls to millions of consumers.
Mr. Hutchinson was also a key player in our firm’s case employment-related against Tata, in which we represented a certified class of over 13,000 Indian nationals claiming that Tata unjustly enriched itself by requiring them to endorse and sign over their federal and state tax refund checks.
