2013 Plaintiffs’ Hot List
Every year, The National Law Journal honors firms “that have done exemplary, cutting-edge work on the plaintiffs’ side” with inclusion on their “Plaintiffs’ Hot List.” Robbins Geller is proud to announce it has been named to the “Plaintiffs’ Hot List” again in 2013 after obtaining “several megasettlements in the past year.” The National Law Journal praised the Firm’s work in rooting out the “mountain of evidence” that had “never been seen by the general public,” and that detailed the horrible conduct of the credit rating agencies. That evidence led to a confidential settlement in April with Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and Morgan Stanley. The National Law Journal also highlighted the Firm’s $500 million settlement with Bank of America and Countrywide over toxic residential mortgage-backed securities. That is the largest class action recovery for investors who say they were misled about the risk of such securities. Each of these cases settled just before trial, which sets Robbins Geller apart from the field.
“Institutional investors come to us because of our willingness to go the distance and prepare a case for trial,” said founding partner Darren J. Robbins. The Firm has offices in ten cities and counts former federal prosecutors among its ranks. “We bring to bear substantial financial and human resources in a manner designed to optimize results for our clients,” Robbins said.
The “Plaintiffs’ Hot List” is announced annually and is comprised of the top plaintiffs’ law firms in the country. Each year, The National Law Journal performs extensive research by reviewing court files, reading news reports, and conducting interviews with both co-counsel and opposing counsel.
