US: EX-DOJ trial lawyer joins Cohen Milstein

 |  September 10, 2019

Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll stated that it has hired Dan McCuaig, a former US Department of Justice trial lawyer who spearheaded several key antitrust cases at the agency, as a partner in its Washington DC-based antitrust practice.

Daniel McCuaig joined Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll late last month as a partner in its Washington, DC, office, bringing his experience turning reams of facts into coherent narratives for trials, as he did in the Apple e-book case and the attempted merger of insurers Cigna and Anthem.  

“What I do best as a lawyer is root out the facts that underlie a conspiracy and acquire a real understanding of them in all of their gory details, then figure out how to present a full narrative in a comprehensible, compelling manner,” McCuaig told Law360 on Monday, September 9. “If you can’t tell a story, you can’t prosecute a case.”

According to their press release, after more than a decade representing the federal government, he said he’s eager to gain experience in class actions.

“Cohen Milstein is, if not the premier class action firm in the country, then certainly one of them,” he said. “The folks here know what they’re doing and I’m thrilled to learn from them.”
