Robbins Geller Earns Plaintiffs’ Hot List Recognition
Every year, The National Law Journal honors firms “that have done exemplary, cutting-edge work on the plaintiffs’ side” with inclusion on their Plaintiffs’ Hot List. Robbins Geller is proud to announce it has been named to the Plaintiffs’ Hot List again in 2013 after obtaining “several megasettlements in the past year.”
This award comes on the heels of Robbins Geller being named among the eleven Most Feared Plaintiffs Firms by Law360 on October 4, 2013. In this inaugural list, Law360 focused on firms that “have stood above the rest in recent years by launching headline-grabbing suits, winning landmark decisions and brokering mammoth settlements.”
The NLJ praised the Firm’s work in rooting out the “mountain of evidence” that had “never been seen by the general public,” and that detailed the horrible conduct of the credit rating agencies. That evidence led to a confidential settlement in April with Moody's, Standard & Poor's and Morgan Stanley. The NLJ also highlighted the Firm’s $500 million settlement with Bank of America and Countrywide over toxic residential mortgage-backed securities. That is the largest-ever class action recovery for investors who say they were misled about the risk of such securities. Each of these cases settled just before trial, which sets Robbins Geller apart from the field.
