Case Evaluation & Litigation
Institutional investors – including public and multi-employer pension funds and domestic and international financial institutions – rely on Robbins Geller for guidance when they suffer losses in securities. Our exceptional ability to take a complex case from the evaluation stage all the way through trial and appeal is one reason we represent more institutional clients than any other law firm in the United States.
Case evaluations begin with analysis of all available facts and evidence, followed by the development of a strategic plan to maximize recovery for clients and their investor classes. Because we have represented individual and institutional plaintiffs in thousands of securities and other complex class actions, recovering tens of billions of dollars, we are unmatched in our ability to analyze complex litigation matters.
Our attorneys direct the evaluation process with the assistance of in-house investigators (including former law enforcement agents), forensic accountants, economists and damage analysts. Once it is determined that a case has merit, our lawyers and other professionals analyze all client transactions – including the timing and price of transactions and type of securities involved – to determine the best legal option.
As the case moves forward, the litigation team – including former federal and state prosecutors and SEC lawyers – coordinates with other in-house experts, from the largest team of forensic accountants and economists in the field, to appellate lawyers. No other firm devotes as many human and financial resources to prosecuting securities actions. Statements of judges and other lawyers across the country who have seen the results of our work confirm this:
- “extraordinary investigatory effort”
- “experience and resources . . . essentially unrivaled in plaintiff securities class action practice”
- “well-written and thoroughly researched submissions”
- “[t]he development of this case and the efforts . . . to unearth the evidentiary support from defendants and numerous third parties was outstanding”
- “enormous breadth and depth of . . . investigations and analysis, and . . . expertise in all areas of securities law”
Uniquely suited, we have garnered more top complex action recoveries and recognition than any other firm in our field. But the results matter in more ways than one. Our outstanding record of top recoveries and successful prosecution at trial, levels a credible threat that increases settlement amounts.
Having a pension fund as lead plaintiff also increases recovery. According to Cornerstone Research, “the presence of public pension plans as lead plaintiffs is associated with significantly higher settlement amounts.” We are proud of the winning combination that results from devoting our resources to our clients to recover losses. We believe our clients are pleased with the results too.
