"Philadelphia's Berger & Montague pulled off a big victory against Big Pharma and on behalf of temporary nurses in a hospital price-fixing case. The 68-lawyer plaintiffs' shop also helped foreign trusts scorched in the Bernie Madoff scandal get back some of their money."

Berger & Montague was specifically recognized for their noteworthy cases:

  • Meijer Inc. v. Abbott Lab., where shareholder Eric Cramer served as co-lead counsel forthis antitrust class action that settled for $52 million after a four-day jury trial in Oakland, Calif. He was assisted by associates Daniel Simons and Ellen Noteware.
  • Johnson v. Arizona Hosp. and Healthcare Ass'n, where Shareholder David Sorensen served as co-lead class counsel in representing a class of thousands of temporary nurses in Arizona in a $22.4 million settlement from this statewide hospital trade association.
  • In re Tremont Sec. Law, State Law and Ins. Litig., where shareholders Sherrie Savett and Glen Abramson helped win a settlement of $100 million for foreign trusts that purchased insurance policies whose premiums were invested in funds which ultimately invested with Bernie Madoff.
