The Firm’s relentless effort on behalf of defrauded investors is unmatched.
Robert Robbins is a partner in Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP’s Boca Raton office. He focuses his practice on investigating securities fraud, initiating securities class actions, and helping institutional and individual shareholders litigate their claims to recover investment losses caused by fraud. Representing shareholders in all aspects of class actions brought pursuant to the federal securities laws, Robert provides counsel in numerous securities fraud class actions across the country, helping secure significant recoveries for investors.
Most recently, Robert and a team of Robbins Geller attorneys obtained preliminary approval of a $1.21 billion settlement in In re Valeant Pharms. Int’l, Inc. Sec. Litig., 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. Robert has also been a key member of litigation teams responsible for the successful prosecution of many other securities class actions, including: Hospira ($60 million recovery); 3D Systems ($50 million); CVS Caremark ($48 million recovery); Baxter International ($42.5 million recovery); R.H.
