BLB&G partner Max Berger participated in the First Annual Securities Litigation & Enforcement Institute, held on December 11, 2012 at the New York City Bar.
Mr. Berger drew upon his extensive experience to discuss the current legal landscape and securities litigation trends on the panel, “Hot Button Issues and Developments in Securities Class Action Litigation,” where he was joined by other plaintiff’s counsel experienced in multi-jurisdictional litigation.
As the founding partner of BLB&G, Mr. Berger supervises the firm's litigation practice and prosecutes class and individual actions on behalf of the firm's clients.
