Since its inception, G&E has grown into one of the most successful plaintiff advocacy firms across the globe. Often a leader in breaking new ground for investors throughout the world, G&E concentrates on complex financial litigation and arbitration matters, representing clients in areas such as securities, M&A, corporate governance, asset recovery, appraisal, antitrust, bankruptcy, false claims, and consumer protection litigation. G&E has generated unparalleled results—in just the last ten years, G&E has obtained recoveries totaling over $28 billion for its clients, including some of the largest securities class action recoveries in U.S. history (such as the $3.2 billion recovery against Tyco International, and multi-hundred million dollar recoveries against companies including General Motors, DaimlerChrysler, and Royal Dutch Shell). Additionally, G&E is actively leading more cases representing institutional investors in non-U.S. jurisdictions than any other U.S. law firm. Among its many accolades, G&E has been named one of the nation’s top plaintiffs firms by The National Law Journal in the annual “Plaintiffs’ Hot List” for more than a decade, and in 2008, earned a place in The National Law Journal’s “Plaintiffs’ Hot List Hall of Fame.” The Firm has twice been ranked by RiskMetrics Group for securing the highest average investor recovery in securities class actions, and is recognized as one of the “Most Feared Plaintiffs Firms” by Law360 and among the “50 Leading Plaintiffs Firms in America” by The National Law Journal.
G&E provides a full spectrum of services to its clients, including comprehensive case monitoring and evaluation, as well as analysis and identification of new and potential litigation. The Firm gives its clients the opportunity to become aware of legal actions that may impact their investments at an early stage, and also presents opportunities for launching shareholder actions to improve corporate governance and accountability, and to address securities law violations or breaches of fiduciary duties. G&E monitors all new and potential litigation in the areas of shareholder derivative actions and federal securities fraud litigation at no charge to its clients. The Firm tracks pending cases as well as financial and business news that may ultimately result in private litigation or claims by federal or state regulators. Monitoring reports are individually tailored for each client and can be delivered in a variety of formats, including online through a secure access client site.
