In re High Fructose Corn Syrup Antitrust Litigation, MDL 1087 (C.D. Ill.)
FKLM attorneys served as co-lead counsel in this antitrust price-fixing class action against major manufacturers of high fructose corn syrup. The case was settled for $531 million for the class. At the close of the hearing where counsel fees were approved, Judge Michael M. Mihm stated:
I’ve said many times during this litigation that you and the attorneys who represent the defendants here are as good as it gets. Very professional. At least in my presence or in my contacts with you, you’ve always been civil. You’ve always been cutting to the chase and not wasting my time or each other’s time or adding to the cost of the litigation.
Recovered for the Plaintiffs
