G&E was a member of the Executive Committee for Direct Purchaser Class Plaintiffs.  Plaintiffs, purchasers of lithium-ion batteries, the rechargeable batteries used in cell phones and other consumer electronics, alleged that numerous battery manufactures conspired to fix lithium-ion battery prices, allowing the manufacturers to overcharge battery purchasers.  After nearly six years of aggressive litigation, G&E helped secure $139.3 million in settlements with the defendants.
