About this office:

Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP prosecutes class and private actions nationwide on behalf of individual and institutional clients. The firm's litigation practice is principally in the areas of securities class actions in federal and state courts, private commercial litigation, corporate governance litigation including claims for breach of fiduciary duty and proxy violations, as well as in prosecuting complex consumer claims, violations of federal anti-discrimination law and toxic tort litigation. In those cases where we have served as either lead counsel or as a member of plaintiffs' executive committee, the firm has recovered sums exceeding twenty billion dollars, often successfully advancing novel and socially beneficial principles. In this connection, we have developed important new law in the areas in which we litigate. We also handle, on behalf of major institutional clients and lenders, more general complex commercial litigation involving allegations of breach of contract, accountants' liability, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud and negligence.

Our firm is dedicated to litigating with the highest level of professional competence, striving to secure the maximum possible recovery for our clients in the most efficient and professionally responsible manner. The firm structure allows us a far greater degree of independence, flexibility and satisfaction than a large firm environment, without sacrificing the quality of representation necessary to litigate complex actions successfully throughout the country.


Statement of Practice Summary:
Commercial Litigation including Securities, Antitrust, Bankruptcy, Consumer Fraud, Employment Discrimination, Qui Tam False Claims, and Patent Infringement; Class and Derivative Actions in all State and Federal Courts.

The Resurgence of the Activist Investor Investors are Challenging Entrenched Corporate Boards — and Winning
John Vielandi, July 1, 2015
