Most recently, Stephanie was part of the Robbins Geller team that obtained a $1.21 billion settlement in In re Valeant Pharms. Int’l, Inc. Sec.

Additional prominent cases include: In re AT&T Corp. Sec. Litig. ($100 million recovery at trial); In re FirstEnergy Corp. Sec. Litig. ($89.5 million recovery); Rasner v.

In addition, Stephanie is a frequent lecturer on securities fraud, shareholder litigation, and options for institutional investors seeking to recover losses caused by securities and accounting fraud.
