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

A ‘highly ethical and very effective’ plaintiff firm, Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll LLP ‘has achieved excellent results on behalf of classes’. Among its highlights, the team secured a $118m damage verdict in In re Electronic Books Antitrust Litigation, in which a class of e-book purchasers claimed that the largest publication companies, conspired to artificially inflate e-book prices through an ‘agency model’. Notable practice members include Daniel Small, who ‘combines one of the best analytical minds with a deep knowledge of antitrust law, an exceptionally even temperament and unquestioned integrity’; Richard Koffman, a ‘strong brief writer and an excellent oral advocate’; and Kit Pierson, who ‘impresses as a very talented trial attorney, with good instincts and a strong presence in the court room’.  George Farah was promoted to partner in January 2014.

Partner Richard Koffman was also named, for the third consecutive year, in the Legal 500 United States 2014 "Leading Lawyers" list under the category of "Litigation - Mass Tort and Class Action: Plaintiff Representation - Antitrust".
