Focused on Client Needs Since 1946


Effective Representation In Class Action Lawsuits and Mass Tort Litigation

We represent consumers, farmers, and businesses who have been harmed by the actions of others. Corporations should be held to a high standard of care when selling products to consumers. Unfortunately, there are instances when they profit from a potentially dangerous product at the expense of the innocent public.

When companies knowingly do not take the necessary steps to protect users or otherwise act fraudulently, they should be held liable for the physical and financial harm that they inflict.

Our law firm often takes cases on a contingency basis — even cases involving complex business disputes, class actions, and mass torts — against major companies. Our clients typically don’t pay anything unless we obtain a verdict or settlement for them.

At Gray Ritter Graham, we built our firm with the simple goal of taking care of good people. Let us take care of you as we help you face down corporations and their army of attorneys in business disputes, mass torts, and class action cases.

Cases We Handle

Consumer Fraud Class Actions

When a number of consumers are victimized in the same way, they can be part of a class action lawsuit to receive compensation for a company’s fraudulent behavior. These large and complex cases require experienced legal counsel with the resources to make such complicated litigation against large corporations feasible for the individuals who have been harmed. At Gray Ritter Graham, we have obtained multi-million dollar settlements and judgments in a variety of class action cases.

Mass Tort Litigation

When a company harms many people, the circumstances sometimes make a class action inapplicable, which is when a mass tort is called for. Although plaintiffs in a mass tort are part of a large group, each member is treated individually; for example, each must provide evidence and facts specific to their case about how they were injured by the defendant. The trial attorneys at Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis have been the lead attorneys on a variety of mass tort MDL cases.

Agricultural Litigation

When big corporations make negligent decisions that cause financial harm to farmers, they have the legal right to pursue just compensation for their losses. The trial attorneys at Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis have been the lead attorneys on a variety of agriculture-related class action and mass tort claims against big corporations like Syngenta and Bayer/ Monsanto.

Environmental Litigation

Dangerous pollution in the environment from contaminated air, water, or soil can have serious consequences on individuals and businesses. It can cause significant property damage and dire health problems. Sometimes, such harm can occur over a long period of time and may not be readily apparent. Our environmental litigation lawyers handle cases that involve dangerous exposure to asbestos, lead, gasoline, and industrial solvents.

Securities Fraud

Even the most financially savvy individuals and large and small businesses alike may find themselves victimized by fraudulent investment scams. Nefarious brokers and investment advisers may develop creative ways to engage in securities fraud, which is why you need a St. Louis securities fraud attorney at Gray Ritter Graham to represent you in unfair financial dealings.

Breach of Fiduciary Duty

When a principal places total trust in their fiduciary agent to make financial decisions that are in his or her best interests, the fiduciary agent must take this duty very seriously. If a fiduciary agent has acted carelessly, then this may be a breach of trust and the agent may be held liable. Our business law attorneys have a wealth of experience handling complex claims involving officers, directors, agents, and brokers. We do everything we can to help our clients achieve the best possible outcome in their cases.

Qui Tam/Whistleblower Claims

Qui tam or whistleblower laws are designed to protect employees who witness and report their employers engaging in illegal activity. Those who have simply done the right thing should not be subject to repercussions. At Gray Ritter Graham, we stand up for whistleblowers and protect their rights. We help if your employer has engaged in retaliation, such as a demotion or even termination.

ERISA Claims

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) is a federal law designed to protect employees enrolled in private industry pension and health plans. If you are concerned that your pension plan or retirement is being mishandled, then you and other members may be able to bring forth a class action lawsuit to help recover your losses. Our St. Louis ERISA claim lawyers can help explain your rights and seek just compensation.
