Benchmark Again Names BLB&G One of “America’s Leading Litigation Firms”

October 2008

For the second consecutive year, the 2009 Benchmark Litigation: The Definitive Guide to America's Leading Litigation Firms & Attorneys, published by Legal Media Group (publisher of leading financial news magazines Institutional Investor and Euromoney) has identified BLB&G as one of the top litigation firms in the nation.  After an extensive research process consisting of in-depth interviews with clients, industry experts and fellow practitioners, “peers attest the team of attorneys is ‘one of the best, bar none.’"

Particularly noteworthy is the fact that of the 41 firms selected from New York, BLB&G was the only firm included on the list exclusively representing plaintiffs.  In addition, senior partner Max Berger, responsible for negotiating some of the largest securities settlements in history, was one of only two plaintiff lawyers in New York named to the list.  Benchmark has also recognized BLB&G partners Gerald Silk, David Stickney, and Salvatore Graziano in their “Future Stars” list.

The guide describes Mr. Berger as a “powerhouse,” who “focuses primarily on securities fraud litigation on behalf of institutional investors” while also “boast[ing] a general practice, with experience in antitrust, employment, civil rights, insurance and patents work.”  The firms’ attorneys are described by one client as “all just super guys.  Really personable is the best way to say it.”
