Cohen Milstein serves as co-lead counsel on behalf of a class of direct purchasers of chemicals used to make many everyday products, from mattress foam to carpet cushion, who were overcharged as a result of a nationwide price-fixing conspiracy. In this long-running case, Cohen Milstein reached settlements totaling $139 million with defendants Bayer, BASF, and Huntsman before obtaining a jury verdict against the last remaining defendant, Dow Chemical, for over $400 million.  In accordance with federal antitrust laws, that verdict was subject to trebling and Dow has been ordered to pay to more than $1.2 billion.
