On August 27, 2018, The National Law Journal selected Robbins Geller partner Randall J. Baron as a 2018 Winning Litigator. Referred to as “masters of the courtroom,” the chosen attorney “scored great results for clients in high-stakes matters.”

Baron was commended for his work as lead trial counsel for plaintiffs in In re PLX Tech. Inc. Stockholders Litig., a stockholder class action bringing claims in connection with the sale of PLX to Avago Technologies following an activist campaign by Potomac Capital. Prior to trial, plaintiffs reached a partial settlement of $14.125 million with PLX’s directors and the company’s financial adviser. The case went to trial against Potomac Capital in the Delaware Court of Chancery in April 2018, marking the first time that a claim against an activist investor over a disputed public company merger ever proceeded to trial. The Vice Chancellor’s post-trial ruling is due by October 16, 2018.

Baron has been responsible for recovering billions for shareholders for nearly two decades. Most notably, Baron recovered $200 million in In re Kinder Morgan, Inc. S’holders Litig., the largest merger & acquisition class action recovery in history; $148 million in In re Dole Food Co., Inc. Stockholder Litig., the largest trial verdict ever in a class action challenging a merger transaction; and $110 million for shareholders in In re Rural/Metro Corp. Stockholders Litig., the largest damages award ever obtained against an investment bank for its role as a merger adviser, to name a few.
