Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)

Ice Miller has one of the most prominent and sought after TCPA defense teams in the country.

Our TCPA lawyers have defended more than 200 TCPA class actions and individual suits nationwide. Our team has been defending TCPA suits since 1999, just as the law was taking shape and just as the plaintiffs’ bar started to make filing these suits a cottage industry. Since that time we’ve been retained by some of the largest companies in the world to assist with compliance programs and to defend large-scale TCPA suits, many times with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake.   
Clients have retained our team to defend TCPA suits in both state and federal courts located in California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, Ohio and Virginia.

We’ve defended corporations of all sizes, hailing from a variety of industries such as: banking, cable and internet, call centers, construction supplies, commercial lending, consumer credit, cosmetics, grocery store and supermarket chains, healthcare, information and delivery, mortgage brokers, payday loans, pharmaceuticals, pizza franchisors, restaurants, retail, and software and technology.
