Six BLB&G partners – Abe Alexander, Rebecca Boon, Christopher Orrico, Scott Foglietta, Katherine Sinderson, and Edward Timlin – have been named to the sixth annual edition of Benchmark ​Litigation' s “40 & Under Hot List."  This recognition commemorates “the most notable up-and-coming litigation attorneys in the United States” who have “had a hand in some of their firms’ most noteworthy recent cases and have earned praise from clients and peers regarding the quality of their work.”

In its review, Benchmark highlighted Abe for his ​work prosecuting high-value securities litigation against several companies including Equifax, Cognizant, and Boeing; Rebecca for her work as part of the team that successfully obtained a $480 million judgment for investors against Wells Fargo related to its fake accounts scandal​; Christopher for his role as part of the team leading a class action against Tile Shop Holdings as well as derivatives litigation against BGC Partners​; Scott for his successful role as a key member of the team that achieved a $50 million recovery for investors in FleetCor; and Katie for her work successfully leading the securities class-action cases against Spectrum Brands and Fleetcor Technologies, which resulted in significant settlements for her clients; and Ed, for his success representing shareholders at New Senior Investment Group in a derivative case that resulted in a $53 million settlement in favor of the client. 

This ranking is compiled following rigorous research performed by Benchmark editors that includes a review of the attorneys’ recent case work, peer review, and client feedback on their performances.  According to Benchmark, attorneys on this list “though young, have established themselves in their respective fields and are set to enjoy bright futures.”
