Benchmark Litigation Recommends Labaton Sucharow in 2016 Guide

NEW YORK (October 19, 2015) — Labaton Sucharow LLP announced today that Benchmark Litigation ranked the Firm nationally as well as in statewide in Delaware and New York for its securities and shareholder litigation achievements. Additionally, four Labaton Sucharow partners are recognized as "Litigation Stars" for their work in securities litigation. In appreciation of the Firm’s performance and service, clients called the Firm team “outstanding,” “sharp and determined,” and “a leader in the plaintiffs securities bar.”

In recognition of one of the Firm’s major cases of 2015, including against Fannie Mae which resulted in a $170 million settlement, Thomas Dubbs was noted as the “boots-on-the-ground guy, the implementer of most recent cases and the one who likes to run with them.”

As someone peers recommend people should “get to know,” in addition to her thriving practice in the area of securities litigation, Martis Alex also leads the Firm’s Consumer Protection Litigation Practice and was named by Benchmark Litigation as one of its Top 250 Women in Litigation for two years in a row.

With more than 40 years of extensive litigation experience, Mark Arisohn concentrates his practice on prosecuting complex securities fraud cases on behalf of institutional investors, and he was listed as a Litigation Star in securities for the fourth successive year. 

Praised for her work “driving a healthy level of activity” in the Firm’s Wilmington, Delaware office, Christine Azar was especially celebrated for securing a $153.75 million settlement against Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold and Credit Suisse. Azar was also one of Benchmark Litigation’s Top 250 Women in Litigation for two consecutive years.

Since 2008, Benchmark Litigation continues to be the only publication focusing exclusively on U.S. litigation. Rankings result from the culmination of a six-month research period in which Benchmark researchers conduct interviews with litigators and their clients, in which recent casework handled by the firms is examined and sources are asked to offer their professional opinions on the attorneys practicing within their state or national practice areas.
