At a black tie ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, BLB&G was presented with the 2007 Global Pensions Award for the “Class Action Law Firm of the Year.” The rigorous nomination process consisted of surveys from 8,500 readers of Global Pensions, a UK based international pension publication, and a distinguished panel of 26 international judges, made up of key decision makers from pension funds and pension consultants.
"A law firm with a conscience..."
According to Global Pensions' judges, BLB&G is "a law firm with a conscience,” one that “looks out for all of the interests of the institutional investor."
This prestigious award further solidifies the firm’s status as an international leader in the field of securities class action litigation. Since its founding over two decades ago, BLB&G has successfully tried several of the largest and most high-profile civil fraud cases in history, recovering nearly $20 billion on behalf of its institutional investor clients. Unique among its peers, the firm has obtained five of the ten largest securities fraud class action recoveries in history.
BLB&G former partner Sean Coffey, counsel Tony Gelderman, and European liaison Abbe Cherkaoui were in attendance at the ceremony to accept the award on behalf of the firm.
