Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann Leads Securities Litigation Field With More Large Recoveries Than Any Other Firm (SCAS); Named Top U.S. Plaintiff Firm by Benchmark

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 28, 2014) - New York-based Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP ("BLB&G") continues to dominate the field representing investors in securities litigation. 

For over a decade, Securities Class Action Services (SCAS - a division of ISS Governance) has compiled and published data on securities litigation. BLB&G has been at or near the top of their rankings every year -- often with the highest total recoveries, the highest settlement average, or both. 

BLB&G also eclipses all competitors on SCAS's recently released "Top 100 Settlements" report, having negotiated five of the ten largest recoveries in history; having recovered 41% of all the settlement dollars represented in the report (nearly $23 billion); and having prosecuted more than a third of all the cases on the list (34 of 100).

The report is available at http://www.issgovernance.com/scas100_2H2013

Named "Plaintiff Firm of the Year" by Benchmark Litigation

BLB&G was also recently presented with Benchmark Litigation's "Plaintiff Firm of the Year Award" at the U.S. Benchmark Litigation Awards ceremony, at the Essex House Hotel in New York City. BLB&G was selected for this top honor from an elite group of six finalists.

Organized by the publishers of Benchmark Litigation: The Definitive Guide to America's Leading Litigation Firms & Attorneys, the awards ceremony recognizes the "top practitioners in the United States litigation community" and honors "individual attorneys, firms, and in-house counsel teams that played a significant role in the industry over the past year."
