Why Work With Us?

It is important to understand that merchants can file claims directly with the Claims Administrator. If they choose to do so, they will find abundant information regarding the litigation at the Court-approved website.

If they choose not to file on their own, an alternative is to file through a qualified claims recovery service like Brownstone Recovery.

Three Reasons To Go With Brownstone Recovery


Brownstone Recovery experts have decades of experience in settlement recovery, with special expertise in cases involving payment and interchange. Brownstone Recovery staff has worked on other card payment cases, including a previous case involving Visa and Mastercard. We know how to mitigate the changes that may come up in cases like this.


Our expertise is focused on this specific topic. We understand the moving parts, monitor the legal proceedings, handle potential unexpected changes, and understand the claim filing processes.


We are with you every step of the way and provide updates on the settlement as it progresses. We help you with your claim, we notify you of important milestones in the process, we tell you what the Claims Administrator is offering, and we work with you to appeal a settlement offer if necessary. From start to finish, we keep you informed of the status of your claim.

Most importantly, we help you understand your options.
