“My life’s work has been to try to make a difference, which sometimes feels like trying to kick down a brick wall with my bare foot. But no matter how difficult it can be, taking on powerful special interests is both necessary and meaningful.”

For more than 35 years, Kenneth A. Wexler’s focus has been on 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. He devotes his practice to complex class action and commercial litigation and has been appointed to leadership positions in more than a dozen class actions throughout his career. These multi-million dollar cases have involved far-ranging subject matters, including brand name manufacturer suppression of competition from generic drugs, fraudulent and deceptive product overcharges, oppression of minority shareholders, discrimination and harassment, corporate waste and mismanagement, cost recovery for defective medical devices, false advertising, and government fraud.
Ken is currently spearheading litigation of a number of notable matters. Among them is a suit brought by the City of Chicago against Opioid manufacturers for unlawful marketing of these very dangerous drugs. Ken is also leading qui tam litigation brought against major investment banks for underpricing municipal bonds issued by the States of Illinois and New Jersey, costing those states and their taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.
