BLB&G Achieves Top Ranking in Latest ISS SCAS “Top 50” Report

May 13, 2024


ISS’s Securities Class Action Services Division (“ISS SCAS”) has ranked BLB&G as the top plaintiff law firm in North America in its Top 50 Plaintiff Law Firms of 2023 report. According to the report, BLB&G led the field with $2.13 billion in total settlement funds approved by courts in 2023. Highlights of the firm’s success included securing the $1 billion recovery in the case against Wells Fargo, as well as the $450 million recovery in the case against Kraft Heinz, the $145 million recovery in the case against Allianz Global, and the $122.5 million recovery in the case against Viacom, among other significant recoveries for shareholders.

This prestigious recognition follows BLB&G’s 14th consecutive #1 ranking in ISS SCAS’s Top 100 U.S. Class Action Settlements of All Time report, published this past January. That report notes that BLB&G has served as lead or co-lead counsel in 38 of the top 100 U.S. securities fraud settlements—almost twice as many as its closest competitor—and that BLB&G has secured more than $27 billion of the top 100 class action recoveries. Since its founding in 1983, the firm has recovered over $40 billion for investors.
