Deepak Gupta is the founding principal of Gupta Wessler PLLC. He specializes in Supreme Court, appellate, and complex litigation on a wide range of issues, including constitutional law, class actions, and consumers’ and workers’ rights. He has also taught public interest law and appellate advocacy at Georgetown and American universities.

Deepak has briefed and argued a wide range of statutory and constitutional cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, several state supreme courts, and federal appellate courts nationwide. He argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion (2011), a landmark case at the intersection of arbitration, preemption, and class actions. He was lead counsel this past term in Expressions Hair Design v. Schneiderman, arguing on behalf of a group of small merchants in a constitutional challenge to swipe-fees laws brought in the wake of the $7 billion Visa swipe-fee antitrust settlement. More recently, Deepak serves as counsel for the plaintiffs in two cases challenging President Trump's violations of the Constitution's Emoluments Clauses, CREW v. Trump and District of Columbia v. Trump, and for the plaintiff in the leadership dispute at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, English v. Trump.

Before founding his firm in 2012, Deepak served as Senior Litigation Counsel and Senior Counsel for Enforcement Strategy at the CFPB. As the first appellate litigator hired under Elizabeth Warren’s leadership, he was instrumental in launching the Bureau’s amicus program, defending its regulations, and working with the Solicitor General’s office on Supreme Court matters. For seven years previously, he was an attorney at Public Citizen Litigation Group, where he founded and directed the Consumer Justice Project and was the Alan Morrison Supreme Court Project Fellow. He received his law degree from Georgetown, studied Sanskrit at Oxford, and received his undergraduate degree in philosophy from Fordham.

Deepak is a member of the Board of Directors of the Alliance for Justice, the Board of Directors of The Impact Fund, the Advisory Board of the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies, the Legal Affairs Committee of the American Association for Justice, and the Class Action Preservation Committee of Public Justice.
