Eleven Attorneys at Hagens Berman Recognized for Representing Plaintiffs in Financial Suits
SEATTLE – Eleven lawyers at Hagens Berman have been recognized in Lawdragon’s 500 Leading Plaintiff Financial Lawyers guide for their rigorous representation of plaintiffs, including investors, stakeholders, whistleblowers and others in financial-related lawsuits, “from securities fraud to blowing the whistle – and everything in between…”
Hagens Berman’s spotlighted attorneys include the firm’s managing partner and co-founder, Steve Berman, as well as partners across the firm’s nationwide network of offices, including: Lauren Guth Barnes, Jeniphr Breckenridge, Elaine Byszewski, Jeff Friedman, Kristen Johnson, Reed Kathrein, Shana Scarlett, Anthony Shapiro, Thomas Sobol and Ronnie Seidel Spiegel.
The guide cites Hagens Berman as a “class action standout,” spotlighting the firm’s tort work alongside its financial cases.
Hagens Berman represents shareholders in securities and financial fraud cases and is one of the nation’s leading firms in this area. Securities litigation has been one of the cornerstones of Hagens Berman’s practice since the inception of our firm. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for institutional and individual investors defrauded by unscrupulous management of publicly held corporations.
The firm is currently involved in dozens of investigations into potential securities fraud and works for investors impacted by poor corporate governance, breach of fiduciary duties, or a failure of good faith, fair dealing or loyalty. Hagens Berman prosecutes cases with the goal of obtaining the greatest recovery possible, and has settled cases or obtained verdicts equal to a much greater percentage of losses.
Lawdragon’s guide has been published since 2007 and represents what the group considers to be “the best of the U.S. plaintiff bar who specialize in representing individual investors and shareholders, as well as businesses and other organizations harmed by corporate misconduct or other failures.” Lawdragon’s methodology includes research of top verdicts and settlements, as well as word-of-mouth recommendations from lawyers nationwide about whom they admire and would hire to seek justice for a claim that strikes a loved one.
