For the 13th Consecutive Year, Labaton Sucharow has been recognized as one of the nation’s best plaintiffs’ firms by The Legal 500.  The Firm once again earned a Tier 2 ranking in the Securities Litigation category.  The Firm was also ranked in the M&A Litigation and Antitrust categories.

Cited for our “deep knowledge,” our Securities Litigation Practice was ranked in Tier 2 for the ninth time.  Tom Dubbs, who was instrumental in securing settlements in class actions against Petrobras and Facebook, was named a Leading Lawyer for the 10th consecutive year.  Mark Willis was recommended for providing “helpful and unique insight to complex matters,” according to clients.  Newly promoted Chairman Christopher Keller and Head of Litigation Jon Gardner were also recommended. 

Our M&A Litigation group in our Delaware office “is home to a practice that ‘makes very sophisticated legal arguments, is appropriately aggressive when it has strong cases, and litigates them more effectively than most of its peer firms.’”  According to a prominent defense lawyer, Leading Lawyer Ned Weinberger is “very smart – he knows the law better than most stockholder plaintiff lawyers.”  

Our Antitrust team “always has the best interest of their clients in mind.”  The group was recognized for their work on several high profile cases including serving as co-lead counsel in a class action alleging major banks of rigging the U.S. treasuries market and serving on the plaintiffs steering committee in a multi-district litigation alleging large pharmaceutical companies of unlawfully raising prices of dozens of generic drugs.  Practice Co-Chairs Greg Asciolla and Jay Himes, Partner Karin Garvey, and Of Counsel Robin van der Meulen were recommended members of the team.

The Legal 500 rankings are based on a series of criteria and highlight the practice area teams who are providing the most cutting edge and innovative advice to clients.
