Every year, leading periodical Lawdragon publishes its exclusive list of the 500 leading lawyers in America. As the tenth Lawdragon 500 comes to press, Lawdragon has recognized 50 “Legends” - lawyers that have been named to the list each year since it has been published. BLB&G partner Max Berger, widely recognized as the “Dean” of the Securities Bar, has been honored alongside esteemed law firm leaders, plaintiffs icons, Supreme Court justices, corporate counsel and public interest attorneys.
Mr. Berger supervises the firm's litigation practice and prosecutes class and individual actions on behalf of the firm's clients. He has litigated many of the firm's most high-profile and significant cases, and has negotiated six of the largest securities fraud settlements in history, each in excess of a billion dollars: Cendant ($3.3 billion); Citigroup–WorldCom ($2.575 billion); Bank of America/Merrill Lynch ($2.425 billion); JPMorgan Chase–WorldCom ($2 billion); Nortel ($1.3 billion); and McKesson ($1.04 billion).
