With over 100 lawyers in six offices, Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC has been recognized as a ‘class-action powerhouse’ (Forbes); ‘the most effective law firm in the United States for lawsuits with a strong social and political component’ (Inside Counsel Magazine); and one of ‘America’s 25 most influential law firms’ (The Trial Lawyer).

For over 45 years, Cohen Milstein has fought corporate abuse, pursuing litigation on behalf of individuals, whistleblowers, public entities and other institutions in cases that have raised challenging, significant and often novel issues. The firm specializes in holding corporate malefactors accountable for their actions, despite the fact that they often have considerably more resources at their disposal than those injured by their misconduct. Cohen Milstein has earned its reputation by winning complex cases that other law firms typically choose to avoid. The firm has litigated numerous groundbreaking cases, resulting in landmark decisions on previously untried issues involving price fixing, securities, consumer rights, civil rights and other far-reaching matters.


The breadth of the firm’s expertise differentiates it from other plaintiffs’ firms. Working together, Cohen Milstein attorneys benefit from their collective knowledge and experience, which often allows the firm to take a more creative approach to the issue at hand. Cohen Milstein litigates across a wide range of practice areas, including the following: 

  • Antitrust
  • Civil Rights & Employment
  • Complex Tort Litigation
  • Consumer Protection
  • Employee Benefits/ERISA
  • Ethics & Fiduciary Counseling
  • Human Rights
  • Public Client
  • Securities Litigation & Investor Protection
  • Whistleblower/False Claims Act

The firm is based in Washington, DC, with additional offices in Chicago, IL; New York, NY; Palm Beach Gardens, FL; Philadelphia, PA; and Raleigh, NC.
