The Opportunity

With offices in Washington D.C., Minneapolis, and Chicago, Sprenger + Lang is a nationally recognized law firm representing plaintiffs in employment and consumer class action litigation.

You may also be familiar with our class action on behalf of California consumers against DirecTV for early termination fees and other illegal business practices. Attorneys around the country know us for having the first sexual harassment class certified, Jenson v. Eveleth Taconite Co., which inspired the feature film “North Country” and was detailed in the book "Class Action: The Story of Lois Jenson and the Landmark Case That Changed Sexual Harassment Law."

Sprenger + Lang has a long history of prevailing in groundbreaking employment law class actions against major corporations. Sprenger + Lang is now bringing this tradition of cutting-edge work to its consumer practice and has brought consumer classes against DirecTV, Qwest, Homecomings Financial Network, and the U.S. Department of Education.
