Since its inception, G&E has grown into one of the most successful plaintiff advocacy firms around the globe. Often a leader in breaking new ground for investors throughout the world, G&E concentrates on complex litigation and arbitration matters, representing clients in areas such as U.S. and international securities, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, antitrust, bankruptcy, public entity, environmental, mass torts, birth injury, civil rights, consumer protection, and false claims litigation.
G&E has generated unparalleled results—in the past 15 years, the Firm has obtained recoveries totaling over $29 billion for its clients across its many practice areas, and has achieved 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 Pfizer, 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.
