(New York, NY) May 31, 2012 -- Milberg is pleased to announce that it has been named as one of the top-tier plaintiffs’ firms in the country by Legal 500 in its 2012 edition. The 2012 list highlights Milberg’s plaintiffs’ securities practice and describes it as “highly recommended by clients for its outstanding response time, wide-ranging scope of knowledge, and great support team.”
Additionally, the publication includes Milberg partners Matthew Gluck, Ariana J. Tadler, Michael C. Spencer, and Robert A. Wallner in the list of recommended plaintiffs’ securities attorneys in the country.
The publication notes that Milberg’s securities fraud class action work is “underpinned by expertise in related areas including shareholder derivative and transactional lawsuits, as well as relevant disciplines such as Supreme Court and appellate, bankruptcy and e-discovery.”
“We are proud to be recognized for our diverse plaintiffs’ litigation practice, which is a rarity in the class action field,” Milberg Executive Committee Chairman Sanford P. Dumain said. “This award is a validation of our successful effort to provide services not offered by traditional class action firms.”
Milberg distinguishes itself from its competitors by offering a diverse and full-service plaintiffs’ litigation practice. It is one of only a handful of plaintiffs’ firms in the country with an appellate advocacy practice, led by Milberg Special Counsel and renowned legal scholar Arthur R. Miller, a University Professor at New York University School of Law. Milberg is also the only plaintiffs’ firm that has a dedicated in-house e-discovery practice. Milberg’s E-Discovery Practice is headed by Ms. Tadler, recognized as a leading authority in electronic discovery.
Milberg has been recognized by the legal community for consistently delivering outstanding results to clients. In 2011, The National Law Journal once again included Milberg in its annual “Plaintiffs’ Hot List,” which recognizes firms that “are at the cutting-edge of plaintiffs’ work -- and that are giving defense players a run for their money.” RiskMetrics Group, a leading provider of independent securities litigation and settlement data, has also consistently ranked Milberg among the top plaintiffs’ firms in the number of recoveries and amount of aggregate recoveries. Since its founding, Milberg has achieved more than $55 billion in recoveries -- more than any of its peers. Between 2007 and 2011, the Firm achieved more than $7 billion in recoveries for its clients.
Milberg LLP is widely recognized as a leading class action and complex litigation firm, representing individual and institutional investors, unions, and consumers. Founded in 1965, Milberg has offices in New York, Los Angeles, and Detroit. The Firm has taken the lead in landmark cases that have set groundbreaking legal precedents and prompted changes in corporate governance benefiting shareholders.
