BLB&G and its senior attorneys have been well recognized by Benchmark Litigation: The Definitive Guide to America’s Leading Litigation Firms & Attorneys since the peer review organization’s inception over 10 years ago. Each year, Benchmark hold its US awards ceremony recognizing 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.”
This year at Benchmark Litigation’s annual awards ceremony, held on February 28, 2019 at the Essex House in New York City, BLB&G senior founding partner Max Berger, widely recognized by industry observers as one of the top litigators in the country, was inducted as a member of Benchmark’s “Hall of Fame,” one of only seven industry heavyweights nationally to ever receive this honor.
Selected for his unparalleled track record – recovering over $33 billion for defrauded investors and using shareholder litigation to address all manner of corporate misconduct – while building one of the leading litigation law firms in the country, Mr. Berger was very touched by the honor:
“I want to thank Benchmark so much for this incredible honor. When I learned of this award and who had received it previously, I was awestruck. Truly. Because every name is someone whom I deeply respect. I cannot say how honored I am to be chosen for this award. Benchmark is a world-class peer review organization and I will treasure this award.
