MCAG is an expert at identifying and recovering non-traditional high margin revenue for all types of organizations from class action settlements. They have experience and credibility in getting the most for your claim with the least effort on your part. Clients have received hundreds of millions of dollars from settlement funds via their Settlement Recovery Service (SRS). They don’t create class actions; they continually search for class actions that have already settled and have funds available for their clients. Monitoring settlement opportunities and effectively filing claims is a complex and resource-intensive process. Engage with MCAG experts so you can focus on core tasks that help you manage and grow your business, while they optimize your returns from class action settlements. MCAG only works on a contingent fee basis for any recoveries obtained for your organization. For this fee, services include the necessary data analysis, document preparation, claims filing, recovery, and reconciliation. If no money is recovered, MCAG will not charge or retain a fee. MCAG provides services to over 75,000 businesses of all types and sizes, including over 1,400 hospitals.
