Cohen Milstein has, for the fifth year in a row, garnered a spot as a leading plaintiff class action antitrust firm, according to the Legal 500.  The editors write:

Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll is a ‘fine firm’ and is involved in both plaintiff and defendant antitrust work. It is serving as plaintiffs’ co-counsel in In re Electronic Books antitrust litigation, in which plaintiffs allege that they paid supra-competitive prices as a result of publishing houses and an e-book publisher conspiring to impose an agency model granting publishers exclusive control over the pricing of e-books. The firm has so far defeated two motions to dismiss in the case. Co-chair Kit Pierson is ‘superb’ in class action and plaintiffs’ antitrust cases, and fellow co-chairDaniel Small is ‘extremely responsive and knowledgeable in the area of antitrust’. Brent Johnson was promoted to the partnership in January 2012.

Partner Richard Koffman was also named, for the third consecutive year, in the the Legal 500 United States 2013 "Leading Lawyers" list under the category of "Litigation - Mass Tort and Class Action: Plaintiff Representation - Antitrust".
