The 2016 Elite Trial Lawyers: Securities Winner and Finalists
Jonathan Gardner gives a glimpse of the Firm’s culture in The National Law Journal’s Elite Trial Lawyers’ Q&A

Labaton Sucharow was named a finalist in 2016 Elite Trial Lawyers’ Award: Securities category. In the Firm’s profile, The National Law Journal highlighted our recent wins against State Street and Barrick Gold, and interviewed partner Jon Gardner for a short Q&A.

Q: What is one word or phrase that best describes the firm?
A: Driven.

Q: What is one interesting fact about your firm that few people know?
A: A few years ago, when we celebrated our 50th anniversary, the firm partnered with Brooklyn Law School to create a securities arbitration clinic. The program has a dual purpose: to assist defrauded individual investors who cannot pay for legal counsel, and to provide students with real-world experience in securities arbitration and litigation.

Q: What is your biggest worry about practicing law?
A: Rather than a worry, my key concern is staying tuned into the evolving needs of our institutional investor clients.
