HandshakePhillips & Cohen LLP has been selected for the National Law Journal’s “Hot List” of the Top 12 plaintiffs’ law firms in the U.S. for 2010.

For four times in seven years, Phillips & Cohen has been named to the National Law Journal’s highly selective “Hot List” for its work on whistleblower cases. The law firm is the nation’s most successful law firm representing whistleblowers.

Phillips & Cohen is one of the few to handle whistleblower cases exclusively. The firm’s whistleblower cases have recovered more than $6.89 billion in civil settlements and related criminal fines and earned its whistleblower clients more than $730 million in rewards under federal and state government whistleblower reward programs.

Phillips & Cohen is at the forefront in representing whistleblowers in claims involving tax law and securities law violations brought under the Internal Revenue Service and the Securities and Exchange Commission whistleblower reward programs.

Law firms were chosen for the “Hot List” based on cases that produced substantial verdicts or settlements between the summers of 2009 and 2010. “Our conclusions are subjective, but show the plaintiffs’ bar at its best,” the National Law Journal said in its Oct. 4 issue. Phillips & Cohen was the only law firm on the list singled out for its work on whistleblower cases.

Examples of cases Phillips & Cohen have handled include the qui tam case against Pfizer, which alleged “off-label” marketing of the prescription painkiller Bextra. That case resulted in Pfizer paying $1.8 billion in 2009 to settle the whistleblower case and paying a related criminal fine. It was the nation’s largest healthcare fraud recovery. Phillips & Cohen’s client received rewards from the federal government and states, totaling more than $71 million.
