Law360 has named Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC among its “Most Feared Plaintiffs Firms” for the second year in a row. In the profile published on November 5, 2014, Law360 wrote that "Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC helped consumers reach an unusually structured $450 million settlement with Apple Inc. earlier this year in a hotly contested and closely watched antitrust suit over the company’s marketing of e-books, leading the firm to repeat as one of Law360’s most feared plaintiffs firms."  Law360 also cited the firm's victory in the Harborview MBS litigation in February, when Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC reached a $275 million agreement to resolve claims by several employee health and pension funds that the company misled investors into buying securities backed by shaky home mortgage loans. The end of this litigation, which was one of the first mortgage-backed securities actions to be filed in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, marks the fifth-largest class action settlement in a federal MBS case.
