Overview

Billions in recovery and renewed vitality for the free enterprise system

For over forty years, Cohen Milstein lawyers have been at the forefront challenging price-fixing conspiracies, market-allocation agreements, monopolization schemes and other antitrust violations in the United States.  During that time, our antitrust group has grown to become one of the largest Plaintiffs’-side antitrust practices in the country, with our attorneys recovering billions of dollars for our clients.  Our work has improved the quality and availability of legal recourse for aggrieved businesses and individuals throughout the country.  Tenaciously pursuing our clients’ interests, our lawyers are prepared to take – and have taken – antitrust cases to trial and to the United States Supreme Court.

In state and federal courts around the country, we have prevailed against some of the world’s largest corporations.  In cases involving pharmaceutical companies abusing their patent rights to block generic drugs from coming to market, for example, Cohen Milstein reached settlements with some of the largest pharmaceutical manufacturers in the world, including recoveries of $90 million, $65 million, and $50 million from Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. alone.  Our attorneys also obtained a $56 million judgment for a class of wild blueberry farmers in Maine following a two-week jury trial against the four largest wild blueberry processors in Maine.

Cohen Milstein is a leading firm in the country for litigation against companies engaged in either unilateral or concerted conduct that harms competition.  With offices in Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Palm Beach Gardens, FL, the resources these offices provide and the expertise of the attorneys litigating in these offices, allow us to litigate successfully against the biggest and most powerful corporations in the world.
