  • Milberg’s Antitrust Practice Group prosecutes large, complex antitrust and trade regulation class actions and other cases that target some of the most powerful and well-funded corporate interests in the world.  These cases frequently expose concealed unlawful conduct such as price-fixing, monopolization, monopoly leveraging, tying arrangements, exclusive dealing, and refusals to deal...

  • Milberg’s insurance litigation practice has resulted in billions of dollars in recoveries and significant industry reforms.  Beginning in 1994, the Firm began representing classes of life insurance policyholders against some of the largest life insurance companies in the country.  These clients alleged that they had been victimized by various uniform improper sales practices, including the sale of so-called “vanishing premium” life insurance policies whose premiums never vanished, the sale of unnecessary replacement life insurance policies whose only purpose was to steal values from existing policies and generate commissions for the sales agent (churning), and the sale of life insurance under the false pretense that what was being sold was something other than insurance, such as a retirement plan.

  • Milberg attorneys have expertise in a wide range of federal and state false claims act cases.  Developing a strong factual foundation for a Relator’s claims is critical to persuading the Government to intervene in a Relator’s lawsuit.  To that end, Milberg attorneys work with in-house investigators to uncover additional evidence to bolster Relator’s claims.  However, even when the Government declines to intervene, Milberg has the resources and commitment necessary to continue prosecuting the action.

  • Milberg has a long tradition of representing victims of human rights violations.  For example, we successfully represented Holocaust survivors who were conscripted by the Nazis as slave and forced laborers during World War II, as well as survivors who were harmed by the actions of Swiss banks and Switzerland during this period.  Approximately $7 billion was recovered as a result of this ligation and international mediation.  Additionally, Milberg litigated on behalf of Nigerian children who were victims of involuntary medical experimentation involving the drug Trovan.  After we established a groundbreaking precedent that nonconsensual human medical experimentation is a violation of customary international law, we obtained a favorable settlement from the defendant drug company.  More recently, Milberg has undertaken the challenging task of representing victims of international terrorism in lawsuits against entities that secretly financed terrorist organizations, including litigating claims on behalf of American citizens who were victims of terrorism in Colombia.

  • Milberg has a long history of appellate victories that have shaped the law favorably for consumers and investors.  The Firm’s appellate achievements span decades — from the Ninth Circuit’s 1975 decision in Blackie v. Barrack establishing the “fraud on the market” theory of securities fraud loss causation to the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Tellabs, Inc. v. Makor Issues & Rights, Ltd. setting a uniform standard for pleading securities fraud claims.

    Milberg has the unique resources to pursue cases through lengthy and even multiple appeals.  In addition, the Firm represents institutional investors as amicus curiae and partners with other firms and solo practitioners on appeals of interest to investors and consumers.
