The significant remedies awarded to successful plaintiffs under The New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act include the possibility of treble damages, attorneys’ fees, and costs and well as possible injunctive relief. Such matters also provide exposure to the client beyond what insurance coverage may offer. Consequently, providing our clients with a rigorous defense, but timely advice and counsel, when sued for Consumer Fraud Act violations is vitally important.
