Maccabim supported Yahoo! in a WIPO proceeding consolidating 38 domain names used in a  technical support scam/phishing operation registered to thirteen (13) nominal Respondents across 3 registrars.

In ordering the domains to be transferred to Yahoo, the Panel found that Yahoo made a “substantial case against the Respondents,” and that “[Yahoo] has, no doubt painstakingly, dissected the evidence and records relating to the disputed domain names to identify connections between them…” Evidence in support of consolidation included unusual common spelling errors and phone numbers. Third-party coverage of the decision can be found here. Yahoo was represented by Matkowsky Law.
