PETER GIL-MONTLLOR joined Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca in 2016. Prior to joining CGL, Mr. Gil-Montllor clerked for the Hon. Allyne R. Ross of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. He also worked as a litigator at a large law firm in New York, where his pro bono work included obtaining asylum for a political refugee.
Mr. Gil-Montllor has a central role in multidistrict litigation (MDL) cases involving price-fixing cartels and antitrust and consumer protection issues. In Generic Pharmaceuticals Pricing Antitrust Litig., MDL 2724, Mr. Gil-Montllor has brought claims on behalf of a nationwide class of independent pharmacies against drugmakers who have colluded to raise prices of over a hundred generic drugs (often tripling or quadrupling the pre-conspiracy prices). Working in conjunction with state enforcers, Mr. Gil-Montllor has uncovered evidence of an industry-wide scheme to allocate markets and increase prices and has won rulings to hold the generic drug manufacturers jointly and severally liable for their anticompetitive conduct. In Packaged Seafood Products Antitrust Litig., MDL 2670, he is litigating antitrust and consumer protection claims against tuna packers who have pleaded guilty and admitted that, for years, they conspired to raise the prices of tuna sold in the US.
Mr. Gil-Montllor also represents Cuban medical doctors who were forced to work abroad, under strict surveillance, in violation of international law and U.S. human trafficking and organized crime statutes.
Mr. Gil-Montllor is a graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center. While at Georgetown, he served as an Articles Editor for the Georgetown Journal of International Law and interned in the Office of the Legal Adviser at the State Department. In addition, Mr. Gil-Montllor helped represent the plaintiff in a Supreme Court case concerning collective actions (11-1059, Genesis HealthCare v. Symczyk) and wrote a successful opposition to certiorari in a case challenging an online payday lending contract as unconscionable (13-97, Geneva-Roth v. Kelker).
Mr. Gil-Montllor enjoys ultralight long-distance hiking and has hiked the entirety of the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, Colorado, and Continental Divide Trails.
