February 2018


BLB&G was once again presented with Benchmark Litigation’s “Plaintiff Firm of the Year" award at its annual U.S. Benchmark Litigation Annual Awards ceremony, held on February 15, 2018 at The Pierre in New York City.  Selected from among an elite group of six finalists, this marks the fourth time BLB&G has received this highly-prestigious honor in the five years since the award’s 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.”

A “Highly Recommended” Firm

For the last eleven 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 in the nation ranked Tier 1 nationally for securities litigation, and one of the only plaintiff firms in the country to be given Benchmark’s top ranking of “highly recommended.”  In its editorial, Benchmark praises BLB&G as " New York's original "Wall Street assassins," noting that it is “nearly always the first to be name-checked by competitors and opponents when discussing plaintiff shops conducting high-level securities work.”  Benchmark also highlights clients’ praise for BLB&G as having “a sterling reputation and is a perennial leader in the securities litigation industry."
