February 17, 2017


For the third time, BLB&G was again presented with Benchmark Litigation’s “Plaintiff Firm of the Year" award at its annual U.S. Benchmark Litigation Annual Awards ceremony, which was held on February 16, 2017 at the Essex House Hotel in New York City.  BLB&G was selected for this top honor from an elite group of six finalists and is the only firm ever to have been recognized with this honor since its inception.

Organized by the publishers of Benchmark LitigationThe 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.”

In its best showing yet, BLB&G was the only plaintiff litigation firm among an elite group of large defense firms to be named a finalist for “New York State firm of the year” and for national “Securities Litigation firm of the year.”  Additionally, BLB&G partner Mark Lebovitch was named a finalist for both “Plaintiff Attorney of the Year” and “Securities Attorney of the Year.”

A “Highly Recommended” Firm
