For the second year in a row, BLB&G was presented with the Global Pensions Magazine Award for the "Class Action Law Firm of the Year" at a black tie ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. This year's nomination process consisted of surveys from 15,000 online readers of Global Pensions, a UK based international pension publication, and a distinguished panel of international judges made up of key decision makers from pension funds and pension consultants.
This prestigious award recognizes "excellence in service" to the pensions industry, and BLB&G has been honored two years in a row 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 counsel Tony Gelderman, senior counsel Beata Gocyk-Farber, and European liaison Abbe Cherkaoui were in attendance at the ceremony to accept the award on behalf of the firm.
