  • Capitalism

    The superbly practical thing about capitalism is that it doesn't distinguish on motive. Whether Cohen Milstein are vultures or heroes is irrelevant: why they are trying to help these people isn't what matters, its the fact that they are. In every problem is an opportunity for the enterprising.

    It remains to be seen whether Cohen Milstein's UK arm can pull off something of this size. Yes, they crow on about getting the settlement for BA/Virgin but that was off the back of the work their US counterparts had made.

    Chasing Equitable is pretty much a sure bet to get off the ground as funders will definitely come on board. But you never know it could end like them trying to fund the dairy class action... but there's no point crying over spilt milk.

    Forget vultures...I think the term often referred to lawyers working on high-volume claimant groups is...ambulance chasers.
    Saying that in this scenario it's a good thing Cohen Milstein is pursuing it. The policyholders in Equitable Life are definitely the victims.

  • Eight years?

    I don't know how well I would survive for eight years if my pension disappeared - I'm amazed it has taken this long for a decision to be reached.

    Better late than never, but no matter how much Cohen Milstein get for claimants that won't reward people who have sold their houses to survive or just had a very parsimonious near-decade. Go Cohen.

    Equitable it certainly wasn't. As a victim saved by downsizing, I would certainly contribute to a fighting fund. Tell me where to start!
