Michael Liskow has extensive experience litigating complex class actions on behalf of plaintiffs in consumer fraud, data breach, antitrust, wage and hour, securities, and housing matters, among others. This includes having served as lead counsel in class actions against a prominent federal credit union and others for violations of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, and against a leading telecommunications provider on behalf of overbilled consumers, both of which resulted in a full recovery for each class member.

Other prior representations include recovering over $272 million for a class of institutional and individual investors who suffered losses resulting from their investment in mortgage-backed securities, and obtaining a $173 million settlement on behalf of overcharged tenants of Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village, the largest recovery for tenants in United States history. Michael has represented consumers in numerous class actions challenging unfair and deceptive business practices, and has had significant involvement in litigating antitrust class actions against technology companies and leading domestic airlines.

Michael recently acted as lead or co-lead counsel for the data breach class actions Mizrahi v. NBEO (D. Md.) and Bokelman v. FCH Enterprises (D. Haw.), and the consumer fraud class action Berger v. L.L. Bean (E.D.N.Y.).

Michael joined The Sultzer Law Group P.C. in 2018. Prior to joining the firm, Michael was a partner at a prominent plaintiffs’ class action firm, a clerk for the Honorable Steven H. Levinson of the Supreme Court of Hawaii, an associate at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP, and a Fulbright Teaching Assistant to the Slovak Republic.
