Top 10 Litigation Practices in Northern California
Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy has been named one of the top 10 leading litigation firms in Northern California in 2008 by the San Francisco / Los Angeles Daily Journal. According to the legal newspaper, "This 25-lawyer class-action shop keeps it collective fingers on the pulse of all types of cases." For example, the firm brokered a $200 million settlement with British Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airways on behalf of consumers accusing the airlines of price fixing and "the case is only one of several antitrust class actions that challenge the way airlines pass on rising costs of jet fuel to their customers." The firm also was cited for its lawsuits against natural gas companies for price manipulation and financial firms involved in subprime lending.
