Nada S. Sulaiman is a staff attorney at Cohen Milstein and a member of the Antitrust practice where she assists in discovery and evidentiary-related aspects of litigation and deposition preparation.
Prior to joining Cohen Milstein, Ms. Sulaiman was an associate and staff attorney at two highly regarded defense law firms in the area of antitrust litigation.
Ms. Sulaiman’s case work includes the following high-profile matters:
- In re Interest Rate Swaps Market Manipulation Litigation (S.D.N.Y.): Cohen Milstein is court appointed Co-Lead Counsel in this groundbreaking putative class action, charging 12 Wall Street banks with conspiring to engineer and maintain a collusive and anti-competitive stranglehold over the interest rate swaps market – one of the world’s biggest financial markets.
- Stock Lending Antitrust Litigation (S.D.N.Y.): Cohen Milstein is co-leading an antitrust class action alleging that major investment banks conspired to prevent the stock lending market from evolving by boycotting and interfering with various platforms and services designed to increase transparency and reduce costs in the stock lending market.
- Sutter Health Antitrust Litigation (Sup. Crt., San Fran. Cnty., Cal.): On August 27, 2021, the Court granted final approval of a $575 million eve-of-trial settlement, which includes significant injunctive relief, in this closely watched antitrust class action against Sutter Health, one of the largest healthcare providers in California, for restraining hospital competition through anticompetitive contracting practices with insurance companies. Cohen Milstein was one of five firms that litigated this case since 2014 on behalf of a certified class of self-insured employers and union trust funds. California’s Attorney General joined the suit in March 2018.
Outside of the practice of law, Ms. Sulaiman is a regular volunteer at Earth Sanga, a not-for profit native plant nursery.
