The National Law Journal named partners Enu Mainigi, Craig Singer, and Steve Pyser to its list of 2023 Class Action/Mass Tort Litigation Trailblazers. Announcing the award, The National Law Journal featured the team’s jury trial for Fifth Third Bank in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, where Fifth Third won a verdict rejecting class plaintiffs’ $444 million breach of contract claim related to the bank’s Early Access Cash Advance loan program and found no liability for Fifth Third Bank under the voluntary payment doctrine.* The victory earned recognition from Law360, which named the team among its Legal Lions of the Week.
The Williams & Connolly team representing Fifth Third Bank at trial also included associates Amy McKinlay and Timothy Pellegrino. Click here to read the Williams & Connolly team’s full Trailblazer profile.
