Cohen Milstein announced Monday that it has hired a veteran antitrust litigator who comes to the plaintiffs firm after 12 years at the U.S. Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division, where he worked on both civil and criminal matters.

Daniel McCuaig joined Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC late last month as a partner in its Washington, D.C., office, bringing his experience turning reams of facts into coherent narratives for trials, as he did in the Apple e-book case and the attempted merger of insurers Cigna and Anthem.  

“What I do best as a lawyer is root out the facts that underlie a conspiracy and acquire a real understanding of them in all of their gory detail, then figure out how to present a full narrative in a comprehensible, compelling manner,” McCuaig told Law360 on Monday. “If you can’t tell a story, you can’t prosecute a case.”

After more than a decade representing the federal government, he said he's eager to gain experience in class actions.

“Cohen Milstein is, if not the premier class action firm in the country, then certainly one of them," he said. "The folks here know what they’re doing and I’m thrilled to learn from them.”

Cohen Milstein's antitrust practice co-chair Benjamin Brown praised McCuaig for his background in litigation and investigations.

“Dan has a proven record of successfully prosecuting and litigating complex and high-profile antitrust cases, and we're thrilled that he is bringing his experience to Cohen Milstein,” Brown said in a statement.
