Lawdragon Names Robbins Geller Partners as Two of the Top 500 Lawyers
Darren J. Robbins and Paul J. Geller, co-founders of Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP, were both named to Lawdragon’s recently published list of the 500 Leading Lawyers in America. According to the legal publication, attorneys were selected “after an intense vetting process in which more than 25,000 lawyers were considered.” The eighth annual guide is “the only guide that includes equally plaintiff and defense lawyers, litigators and dealmakers, jurists and academicians.”
Robbins previously received the Lawdragon award in 2010 and 2011. He was also recognized as one of The American Lawyer’s Young Litigators 45 and Under, and also named Attorney of the Year by California Lawyer in 2004 for his role as lead counsel in In re Hanover Compressor Securities Litigation, which resulted in a significant recovery for shareholders and landmark corporate governance reforms.
Geller receives the Lawdragon honor for the fourth time. Rated AV by Martindale-Hubbell (the highest rating available) and twice named one of the nation’s top “40 Under 40” by The National Law Journal, Geller has served as lead or co-lead counsel in a majority of the securities class actions that have been filed in the southeastern United States in the past several years. Throughout his career, Geller has remained deeply committed to legal remedies that result in better corporate governance reforms.
Commented Geller, “We are honored to be recognized, but it would be wrong to consider this an individual distinction. Every case we bring is litigated by a team of lawyers, paralegals, accountants, investigators and the best staff around. The successes that Darren and I have achieved for our clients result directly from the teams we have. We don’t prosecute these cases alone.”
