Akin Gump has won a “bet-the-industry” case on behalf of Propel Financial Services in Billings et al. v. Propel Financial Services, which arose from multiple class-action lawsuits brought against the company. After the 5th Circuit denied rehearing en banc, Akin Gump successfully defended against a certiorari petition in the U.S. Supreme Court—thereby preserving the victory. Pratik Shah, co-head of Akin Gump’s Supreme Court and appellate practice, represented Propel in the matter.
