Michael Dell'Angelo litigates complex cases, primarily for

Montague focused on two of Mr. Dell'Angelo's most recent successes,
including a settlement with JPMorgan Chase & Co., for $100
million in cash and other relief, stemming from the bank's role in
the collapse of commodities broker MF Global. In total, the
complex settlement will enable the MF Global trustee to distribute
about $1 billion to MF Global's former commodity customers whom Mr.
Dell'Angelo represents. The profile also featured settlements
totaling $163.5 million in In re Titanium Dioxide Antitrust
Litigation, No. 1:10-cv-00318-RDB (D. Md.), an antitrust
