Law360 has named BLB&G as one of the top six securities practices in the nation for 2013 in its annual “Practice Groups of the Year” awards. The award recognizes the complexity, size and significance of litigation wins. Practice groups from over 130 of the top law firms in the U.S. were reviewed by a panel of Law360 editors. BLB&G was the only plaintiff’s securities practice selected for this honor.
Law360 noted that BLB&G “…is known for choosing only the strongest cases and litigating them until the bitter end; an approach that led to massive settlements…”
According to founding partner, Max Berger, “The firm has always been about not just being a successful business enterprise, but really being on the right side of things and effecting positive change.”
Law360 echoed that sentiment by noting that “Bernstein Litowitz did more in 2013 than simply recover for investors. The firm also successfully pressed corporate defendants to improve their governance and political disclosure policies, an emerging trend in litigation.”
Widely recognized as one of the leading law firms worldwide advising institutional investors on issues related to corporate governance, shareholder rights, and securities litigation, BLB&G has repeatedly and consistently earned high praise from courts across the nation, as well as the respect of the defense firms and insurance carriers we face in court and across the negotiating table.
