Rusty Perdew litigates complex commercial, class-action, and tort cases in jurisdictions across the country. He represents clients in numerous, typically consumer-facing, industries, with a specific focus on the financial-services industry, and product manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Mr. Perdew aggressively defends his clients in class action and high-exposure individual cases alleging violation of state consumer-fraud or deceptive-trade-practice statutes, common-law fraud, and breach of contract, as well as personal injury claims sounding in negligence and strict liability.

Mr. Perdew frequently defends financial services companies, including residential mortgage lenders and servicers, in cases alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Truth in Lending Act (TILA), the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA and FACTA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), federal and state False Claims Acts (qui tam cases), the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), provisions of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and Bankruptcy Rules, and state consumer protection statutes.

Mr. Perdew also protects clients’ valuable trade-secret information by initiating litigation and mandatory arbitrations and obtaining emergency injunctions to prevent the dissemination and illegal use of proprietary information.

He is an adjunct professor at Northwestern University School of Law, teaching Trial Advocacy and Civil Discovery. He received his B.A. from Bradley University and his J.D. from Northwestern. He is a frequent author and speaker on class-action litigation trends and regulations affecting the financial services industry.
