Vincent Serra is a partner in Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s Melville office and focuses his practice on complex securities, antitrust, consumer, and employment litigation. His efforts have contributed to the recovery of over a billion dollars on behalf of aggrieved plaintiffs and class members. Notably, Vincent has contributed to several significant recoveries, including Dahl v. Bain Cap. Partners, LLC ($590.5 million recovery), an antitrust action against the world’s largest private equity firms alleging collusive practices in multi-billion dollar leveraged buyouts, and Samit v. CBS Corp. ($14.75 million recovery, pending final approval), a securities action alleging that defendants made false and misleading statements about their knowledge of former CEO Leslie Moonves’s exposure to the #MeToo movement.
Additionally, Vincent was a member of the litigation team that obtained a $22.75 million settlement fund on behalf of route drivers in an action asserting violations of federal and state overtime laws against Cintas Corp. He was also part of the successful trial team in Lebrilla v. Farmers Grp., Inc., which involved Farmers’ practice of using inferior imitation parts when repairing insureds’ vehicles. Other notable cases include Alaska Elec. Pension Fund v. Pharmacia Corp. ($164 million recovery), In re Priceline.com Sec. Litig. ($80 million recovery), and In re DouYu Int’l Holdings Ltd. Sec. Litig ($15 million recovery pending final approval). Vincent is currently litigating several actions against manufacturers and retailers for the improper marketing and sale of purportedly “flushable” wipes products. In Commissioners of Public Works of the City of Charleston (d.b.a. Charleston Water System) v. Costco Wholesale Corp., Vincent serves as court-appointed class counsel in connection with a settlement that secured an unprecedented commitment of Kimberly-Clark to meet the national municipal wastewater standard for flushability.
