Washington Hospitality Association has partnered with Class Action Capital, a market leader in class action settlement claim management. Class Action Capital is already successfully working with a very large number of hotels, restaurants, and state associations across the country, helping to recover substantial refunds on their behalf from several recent class action settlements. WHA will now offer these value-added services to its members.

Many restaurants and hotels do not have the time, resources, or relevant data available to file a settlement claim. Class Action Capital will work with you to submit a fully comprehensive claim recovery.

Class Action Capital’s pricing model is simple – we work on a commission basis whereby we receive a percentage of the client’s financial recovery. Once you sign up for our claim management service, we will immediately get to work building and preparing a comprehensive claim.

We work to best position each client’s recovery from a settlement while minimizing their time, use of internal resources, and the risk of error if they were to manage claims on their own. Please see below for a listing of applicable settlements and our claim authorization form.
