Cozen O’Connor class action litigators Meredith Slawe and Michael McTigue are joining Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom in New York to help clients defend against the rise in aggregate litigation, firm leaders confirmed to in an interview Friday. They are expected to start at the firm this week.

The duo has hopped across several Am Law 100 firms for the last four years. They moved from Drinker Biddle & Reath to Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld in 2018, then less than two years later they went to Cozen O’Connor. They were co-chairs of Cozen’s class actions group, and Slawe was also co-chair of Cozen’s retail group.
