Each year, The Legal 500’s team of experienced researchers – which includes qualified journalists and lawyers – spends several months conducting in-depth research into the United States legal market. The primary source of their information is the law firms themselves, and the team also gathers feedback from peers and clients to assess firms’ overall visibility and reputation. This process culminates in detailed rankings and editorial that provide an objective analysis of the US market.
In this year’s guide, The Legal 500 writes: “Well-known for its heavy involvement in numerous matters pertaining to manipulation in the financial space, [Berger Montague’s antitrust] department is spearheaded by a quartet consisting of Eric Cramer, Merrill Davidoff, [H.] Laddie Montague Jr. and David Sorensen.”
The 2020 edition goes on to highlight each department head’s particular strengths: “The pillar of Cramer’s practice are antitrust class actions, for instance on behalf of workers claiming that anticompetitive practices have suppressed their pay. Class action in commodities, securities and environment sectors are Davidoff’s strong suits. Montague Jr. fields a wealth of experience in nationwide class actions and Sorensen attracts praise for [his] role in several cases against pharmaceutical companies for delaying generic competition.”
The guide also names Michael Dell’Angelo as a key lawyer, stating: “Promoted to managing shareholder in January 2019, Michael Dell’Angelo shines in matters related to price-fixing and other anti-competitive behavior affecting a variety of financial instruments.” Shareholder Caitlin Coslett is recognized as a key lawyer as well.
