    Attorney Profile

    Providing Justice for Investors, Consumers and Injured Individuals

    Daniel P. Chiplock, a partner in our New York office, focuses his practice on financial and consumer fraud cases.

    Mr. Chiplock has played an active role in most of the firm's financial cases over the last decade, including litigation against Bank of America, McKesson, Qwest, and Tyco, in which he represented both large public pension funds and mutual funds that sustained investment losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars as a result of corporate misconduct. Presently, he is heavily involved in the firm's investigation of, and litigation surrounding, alleged overcharges in foreign currency exchange (FX) transactions by banks such as BNY Mellon and State Street that act as custodians for pension funds.

    Mr. Chiplock has also represented New York consumers overcharged as a result of deceptive trade practices by Microsoft Corporation, as well as banking customers who have been victimized by the practice of numerous national banks of reordering check payments in order to charge excessive overdraft fees.

    His past case work in personal injury and mass torts includes representing patients who suffered heart attacks or strokes, and the families of loved ones who died, after having being prescribed the arthritis and pain medication Vioxx. He also represented several individuals who sustained life-threatening injuries as a result of ingesting the Fen-Phen diet drug combination.

    On a pro bono basis, as part of Trial Lawyers Care (a project of the American Association for Justice), Mr. Chiplock represented several individuals, including an injured firefighter, in appeal hearings before the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund. In one case, his advocacy resulted in an award that was more than 50 times greater than that which was determined prior to his client's appeal. He counts his work for Trial Lawyers Care among his most satisfying achievements, both professionally and personally.

    Mr. Chiplock also serves on the Executive Committee of the National Association of Shareholder and Consumer Attorneys, and is an active member of numerous other professional organizations, including Public Justice, the American Association for Justice, and the American Constitution Society for Law & Policy.
