For the fourth year in a row, Benchmark Litigation has named partner Hannah Ross as one of its 2017 “Top 250 Women in Litigation.”
This annual ranking recognizes “the most distinguished women in the world of litigation” following an extensive six-month research process that included a thorough review of their professional achievements, individual interviews, and client feedback. According to Benchmark, Ms. Ross’ selection is indicative of her status “amongst the leading female litigators by participating in some of the most impactful litigation matters in recent history as well as by earning the hard-won respect of their peers and clients.”
Ms. Ross was a key partner on the trial team that prosecuted In re Bank of America Securities Litigation, which resulted in the landmark settlement of $2.43 billion shortly before trial, one of the largest recoveries ever obtained. She also played a critical role in the securities litigation against Nortel Networks ($1.07 billion), another of the top recoveries in history; and The Mills Corporation ($203 million, the largest recovery ever achieved in a securities class action in Virginia and the second largest recovery ever in the Fourth Circuit). She also served as a key member of the team that obtained $234.4 million for investors in the securities litigation arising from the collapse of former leading brokerage MF Global. Most recently, Ms. Ross served as the senior partner in the litigation against Altisource Portfolio Solutions, S.A., a provider of support and technology services for mortgage loan servicing, which settled for $32 million.
