Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP ("BLB&G") prosecutes class and private actions on behalf of individual and institutional clients. Since our founding in 1983, we have obtained many of the largest monetary recoveries in history – over $32 billion on behalf of investors. Working with our clients, we have also used the litigation process to achieve precedent-setting reforms which have increased market transparency, held wrongdoers accountable and improved corporate business practices in groundbreaking ways.
As a result of our accomplishments, the firm and our attorneys have been the subject of feature coverage in The Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, The New York Times, Bloomberg, Reuters, The American Lawyer, and The National Law Journal, among other outlets. Our lawyers are also frequent commentators for the business and legal media in their areas of expertise.
BLB&G is widely recognized as one of the leading law firms worldwide advising institutional investors on issues related to corporate governance, shareholder rights, and securities litigation. We have also prosecuted some of the most significant employment discrimination, civil rights and consumer protection cases on record. Equally important, the firm has advanced novel and beneficial principles by developing important new law in the areas in which we litigate.
A distinguished group of trial-tested litigators, BLB&G has repeatedly and consistently earned high praise from courts across the nation, as well as the respect of the defense firms and insurance carriers whom we face in court and across the negotiating table.
Since our founding in 1983, we have dedicated our practice to protecting victims of corporate wrongdoing while providing extraordinary value to our clients. Working on a contingent basis, we have successfully prosecuted many of the most significant and high-profile actions in history in the areas in which we litigate.
Specializing in securities class, derivative and direct actions in federal and state courts; corporate governance litigation, including claims for breach of fiduciary duty and proxy violations; violations of federal and state anti-discrimination laws and vindication of employee rights; and consumer claims, we also prosecute general complex commercial litigation involving allegations of breach of contract, accountants' liability, breach of fiduciary duty, patent infringement, fraud and negligence on behalf of institutions and individuals.
With a financial interest in the outcome of a litigation, our interests as advocates are perfectly aligned with those of our clients.
