Silver Golub & Teitell LLP represents clients in complex civil litigation at the trial and appellate levels, including class actions, RICO, antitrust, False Claims Act, government affairs and civil rights litigation. The firm’s class action and complex litigation practice has recovered billions of dollars in judgments and settlements on behalf of private individuals, corporate whistleblowers, federal, state and local governments, and unions and pension funds, among others.

The firm undertook its first class action litigation in 1983, serving as class counsel in an ERISA action that obtained additional pension benefits for more than 40,000 Xerox Corp. pensioners. Nearly 40 years later, the firm is currently completing claims settlement processes in a quarter-billion dollar recovery obtained in a class action against the State of Connecticut for public sector union employees fired in violation of their First Amendment rights of free speech and association. The firm just participated with a team of class counsel in a pro bono class action against the U.S. Bureau of Prisons establishing crucial COVID protections for federal prisoners at FCI Danbury.

Silver Golub & Teitell served as private lead counsel for the State of Connecticut in its sovereign enforcement action against the tobacco industry, helping Connecticut recover nearly $4 billion; an additional $350 million was awarded in recognition of the work performed by Connecticut’s legal team in helping to achieve the national settlement. SGT also helped the United States Government obtain a $150 million recovery in a False Claim Act action against a major defense contractor.
