May 5, 2006In a series of profiles of outstanding litigators, prominent legal newswire Securities Law360 features BLB&G’s Senior Founding Partner, Max Berger, as one of 10 “Legal Superstars.”
Securities Law360 highlighted Mr. Berger’s outstanding role in many of the firm’s most high profile cases, including the celebrated Texaco race discrimination case and the massive WorldCom securities class action, both of which resulted in unprecedented corporate governance reforms, which have served as models for public companies going forward. The profile also quotes BLB&G Partner Edward Grossmann describing his partner as “probably the best negotiator I’ve ever seen… I can’t think of any litigation skills that Max doesn’t possess … He has an extraordinary grasp of the law in our field.”
In addition to his accomplishments on the legal front, the profile detailed Mr. Berger’s passion for photography and his commitment to charitable causes and philanthropy. Mr. Berger and his firm are active supporters of non-profit organizations, principally “City Year,” a youth service program and “inMotion,” a group that offers free legal services to indigent women. Additionally, Mr. Berger is an accomplished photographer and sales of his photography have generated over $125,000 - all of which he has donated to the two organizations.
