Hannah Ross Named a "Titan of the Plaintiffs' Bar" by Law360

May 7, 2019

BLB&G partner Hannah Ross was named a “Titan of the Plaintiffs Bar” by legal newswire Law360. The list honors a select group of top plaintiffs’ attorneys described as, “champions in the courtroom who not only capture massive settlements and go up against big-name companies, but also take on leadership roles at their offices and elsewhere.”

Law360’s profile recognizes Ms. Ross as someone who “has made a name for herself inking record-setting settlements and recovering billions for vulnerable investors in securities litigation,” noting that last year “the former prosecutor helped Wilmington Trust investors recover a record $210 million in litigation over accusations that the bank withheld information about its fiscal health in what she touted as the second-largest recovery in the District of Delaware and one of the largest in the Third Circuit.”

Widely recognized by industry leaders and observers as one of the nation’s top securities litigators, Ms. Ross “sees herself representing victims of corporate crime who often disproportionately feel the effects of financial misconduct.” But it is not only her role as a litigator where her passion is on display. She is “often a sounding board or adviser for women seeking counsel on their own careers,” noting “[The legal industry] has been a historically male-dominated space, and I want to see women succeed and make sure there aren’t any barriers to that.”
