Our Distinctions

What Sets Us Apart


We were the first firm in the country to represent public pension funds in securities litigation. Throughout our more than 45-year history, we have represented public pension funds in securities litigation longer than any other firm.


We’ve recovered billions of dollars for injured investors in dozens of successful securities class actions. This includes three cases that settled for more than $1 billion each and four that stand as the largest recoveries in some of the most active federal courts around the country (Southern District of New York, the District of New Jersey, the Northern District of California, and the District of Delaware).


Our BEAMS® platform is the first patented online portfolio monitoring service. With BEAMS®, institutional investors can track their financial interests in securities litigation throughout the lifespan of a case—from the first news that a fraud may have occurred through the deposit of a recovery from a settlement.

Superior Client Service

Through our comprehensive services, we not only help our clients identify when they have been victims of securities fraud, but also ensure they receive every eligible dollar to which they are entitled. We exceed expectations by thoroughly and promptly monitoring and evaluating each step of the claims process on behalf of our clients.

Trial Experience

We are one of the only firms that has litigated a securities class action through trial, achieving a jury verdict in the full amount of damages sought on a class-wide basis and maintaining the verdict on appeal.
