Robbins Geller’s consistent record of achieving more recoveries and higher recoveries on average than all firms demonstrates why we are the go-to firm for institutional investors. Whether it is portfolio monitoring or the need to recover lost assets by litigation, we mobilize our teams to achieve the best results for you.
How do we do it? The depth of our bench is unparalleled, and nobody comes close. Our firm includes dozens of former federal and state prosecutors and SEC lawyers as well as our own appellate group. Our legal strength is enhanced by a world-class, in-house team of forensic accountants, investigators, chartered financial analysts and economists. Also, we invest more in information technology than any other plaintiffs’ securities firm, drawing from in-house resources that include trial presentation and information technology experts, as well as software programmers.
Throughout the business world, we’re known as a firm that’s not afraid to fight. Our outstanding record of top recoveries and successful prosecution at trial creates a credible threat that increases settlement amounts. And we don’t just secure recoveries – our appellate lawyers help protect the laws providing rights to consumers and investors.
Most of all, we are relentless in our pursuit of justice. Vice Chancellor Stephen Lamb (Delaware) recently stated “the sheer diligence and effort" of our firm overcame “serious procedural and other barriers.” Similarly, United States District Judge Melinda Harmon stated in Enron that “in the face of extraordinary obstacles, the skills, expertise, commitment, and tenacity of [Robbins Geller attorneys] cannot be overstated.” Many other judges echo these conclusions.
A source of this excellence is our laser-sharp focused attention and devotion to our clients.
Consequently, it is our privilege to represent more institutional investors, including public and multi-employer pension funds and domestic and international financial institutions, in securities and corporate litigation than any other law firm in the United States.
