Michael Agoglia has for more than 25 years represented a variety of financial services companies and other clients in a wide range of complex litigation, government enforcement, internal investigation and ADR contexts. He has been engaged repeatedly—often by leading industry trade associations—to act as national coordinating counsel in large, multiparty and multiforum cases.
He has helped national banks, mortgage bankers, auto finance companies, insurers, other financial services companies and retailers in connection with challenges to alleged referral schemes, unfair business practices, privacy breaches, preemption, credit reporting, discrimination claims and many other consumer regulatory issues.
Michael has handled hundreds of class actions, where he has routinely secured early dismissals and defeated class certification. Where appropriate, he has negotiated and obtained approval for cost-effective class settlements. He has tried matters successfully to juries, courts and arbitrators.
He has argued and won several high-profile cases in the courts of appeals. His practice over the last decade has increasingly focused on responding both to state and federal enforcement actions and related regulatory inquiries.
