BLB&G was presented with Benchmark’s inaugural “Plaintiff Firm of the Year" award at its annual U.S. Benchmark Litigation Annual Awards ceremony, which was held on January 29, 2014 at the Essex House Hotel in New York City. BLB&G was selected for this top honor from an elite group of six finalists.
Organized by the publishers of Benchmark Litigation: The Definitive Guide to America’s Leading Litigation Firms & Attorneys – leading financial news magazines Institutional Investor and Euromoney – the awards ceremony recognizes the “top practitioners in the United States litigation community” and honors “individual attorneys, firms, and in-house counsel teams that played a significant role in the industry over the past year.”
A “Highly Recommended” Firm
For the last seven years in a row, Benchmark has recognized BLB&G as one of the leading litigation firms in the nation. It is the only plaintiff litigation firm based in New York, and one of the only plaintiff firms in the country, to be given Benchmark’s top ranking of “highly recommended.” According to Benchmark, BLB&G is "unique in that it is one of the most successful contingency fee plaintiff firms, with many record-setting verdicts and settlements to its credit… peers on both sides of the aisle refer to the firm as ‘premier,’ and ‘preeminent." Benchmark also acknowledges clients’ praise for BLB&G’s "wealth of experience and sterling reputation."
