The Legal 500 named Berger & Montague a top plaintiffs' class action firm in antitrust litigation. Additionally the firm recognized the firm's President H. Laddie Montague, Jr. and Managing Shareholder Eric Cramer as "Leading Lawyers" in the area.  The Legal 500 wrote:

"An 'excellent firm' based in Philadelphia, Berger & Montague, P.C. is 'easy to deal with' and is noted for the depth of its team. The practice, co-chaired by name partner H Laddie Montague and Merrill Davidoff, covers price-fixing, monopolization and cartel cases, and is particularly well versed in the pharmaceutical sector and in matters relating to payment cards. It acted as co-lead counsel in In re Payment Card Interchange Fee & Merchant Discount Antitrust Litigation, representing a class of merchants against Visa and MasterCard and achieving a $5.7bn settlement, the largest-ever monetary settlement of private antitrust litigation, as well as establishing the merchants' right to surcharge, which is believed to increase competition in interchange fees. The firm also regularly acts in proactive class actions not resulting from government investigations; examples include In re Titanium Dioxide, a price-fixing case in which it represented a class of direct purchasers. Eric Cramer and David Sorensen are also recommended."
