December 17, 2010
The Recorder, California's premier legal daily, has named BLB&G partner Blair Nicholas one of its "2010 Attorneys of the Year" for his impressive legal achievements and "blockbuster stock options cases that settled in 2010." Mr. Nicholas is one among 19 other California-based attorneys recognized by the publication for this honor.
According to The Recorder, "this year's winners are marked by their perseverance - whether fighting long odds, persuading courts to reconsider their own rulings, or getting great trial results in high-profile, high-pressure situations." Mr. Nicholas was recognized for his successful prosecution of In re Maxim Integrated Products Inc. Securities Litigation, which settled for $173 million in cash - the largest backdating settlement in the Ninth Circuit; and In re International Rectifier Corp. Securities Litigation, which settled for $90 million in cash.
