Labaton Sucharow LLP announced today that the Firm has been recognized as one of Law360's Most Feared Plaintiffs Firms for the second year in a row.
Selected law firms were chosen based on what the publication deemed "outstanding victories" between July 1, 2013, and July 1, 2014. Labaton Sucharow's submission featured notable litigation work against companies such as AIG, Facebook, Massey Energy, Schering-Plough, Walgreens, Jos. A. Bank, and Hewlett-Packard, among others.
The full list of firms was announced in an October 30, 2014 Law360 article. A profile on the Firm's work, published on November 10, 2014 lauded the Firm's "reputation as one of the top plaintiffs firms in the business."
According to Firm Chairman, Lawrence A. Sucharow, "We talk about the white hat and the black hat in a joking way, but I know my partners and my successful brethren all believe they're wearing the white hat. They're not just taking the client's position, but also a morally responsible position. It's not just recovering money for a client — it's almost a cause." He added, "Plaintiffs firms, like defense firms, have different personalities. We're tenacious but modulated. We try to come up with practical solutions and resolutions, but if we are compelled to litigate, we're excellent at what we do."
But Labaton Sucharow is also one of the rare plaintiffs firms that isn't actually afraid to take a case to trial, according to the Larry. The firm's boldness and track record of success has led defense firms across the country to both fear and respect Labaton Sucharow.
