Kenneth A. Wexler

Wexler Wallace LLP

Chicago, IL, USA


Professional Profile
For some 30 years, Ken has devoted himself to helping those whose rights have been denied, or who have been victims of the unscrupulous or fraudulent actions of others — usually by more powerful people and organizations. Founder of Wexler Wallace, Ken was also a founding partner of the firm formerly known as Miller Faucher Cafferty and Wexler LLP. Before then, he was a partner in the Chicago law firm then known as Much Shelist Freed Dennenberg Ament & Eiger, PC.

Ken has been in leadership positions in cases with far-ranging subject matters, including brand name manufacturer suppression of competition from generic drugs, fraudulent and deceptive product overcharges, discrimination and harassment, corporate waste and mismanagement, cost recoverry for defective medical devices, false advertising, and government fraud. Ken’s practice is devoted to complex class action and commercial litigation, which includes claims brought under federal and various state false claims statutes, and the securities and antitrust laws. At present, Ken is focused on protecting issuers of municipal bonds, recovering losses for pension funds and other investors that were victimized by unlawful and improvident securities lending practices, and cost-recovery for victims of healthcare fraud, including Taft-Hartley Funds, self-insured employers, and governments, and recapturing benefits stripped from investors by high-profile
participants in a public merger.
