Reuters Article Profiles Achievements of Sean Coffey and BLB&G

May 22, 2006

Reuters, in a piece entitled, "Lifting the Lid: NY Lawyer Contender for Torts Crown,” discusses BLB&G's former partner Sean Coffey’s professional achievements and credits BLB&G as being “at the top of the heap of securities class action firms.”  Recovering nearly $20 billion on behalf of shareholders since the firm was founded, BLB&G has repeatedly topped the Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) annual study for obtaining the largest amount of settlement monies and the highest average settlement values by “consistently bringing high-impact cases.” (ISS).

“Lifting the Lid” also outlines how Mr. Coffey climbed the ranks of securities class action litigators.  His role in securing a $6.15 billion settlement for the investor class in WorldCom and his reputation as a tough and brilliant litigator have forced Corporate America to take notice.
