It is very gratifying to be part of a firm where its driving mission is to help those harmed by corporate wrongdoing.
Jack Reise is a partner in Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s Boca Raton office. Devoted to protecting the rights of those who have been harmed by corporate misconduct, his practice focuses on class action litigation (including securities fraud, shareholder derivative actions, consumer protection, antitrust, and unfair and deceptive insurance practices). Jack also dedicates a substantial portion of his practice to representing shareholders in actions brought under the federal securities laws. He is currently serving as lead counsel in more than a dozen cases nationwide.
Most recently, Jack and a team of Robbins Geller attorneys obtained preliminary approval of a $1.21 billion settlement in In re Valeant Pharm. Int’l, Inc. Sec. Litig.‚ No. 3:15-cv-07658 (D.N.J.), a case that Vanity Fair reported as “the corporate scandal of its era” that had raised “fundamental questions about the functioning of our health-care system, the nature of modern markets, and the slippery slope of ethical rationalizations.” Subject to court approval, this is the largest securities class action settlement against a pharmaceutical manufacturer and the ninth largest ever.
As lead counsel, Jack has also represented investors in a series of cases involving mutual funds charged with improperly valuating their net assets, which settled for a total of more than $50 million. Other notable actions include: In re NewPower Holdings, Inc. Sec. Litig., No. 02-CV-01550 (S.D.N.Y.) ($41 million settlement); In re Red Hat, Inc. Sec. Litig., No. 5:04-CV-473 (E.D.N.C.) ($20 million settlement); and In re AFC Enters., Inc. Sec. Litig., No. 1:03-CV-0817 (N.D. Ga.) ($17.2 million settlement).
