Grant & Eisenhofer is a mission-driven legal powerhouse that has evolved into a global leader in complex, high-stakes plaintiff advocacy.
Since opening its doors over 25 years ago, G&E has been a pacesetter in U.S. and international securities litigation and corporate governance, while significantly expanding to encompass environmental, mass torts, antitrust, bankruptcy, birth injury, civil rights and consumer protection litigation.
With its focus on promoting its clients’ priorities, the Firm founded the G&E ESG Institute, a non-profit organization that harnesses its members’ legal skills to pursue significant ESG goals. Dedicated to these urgent values, G&E has vindicated the rights of states and municipalities suffering lasting damage from toxic environmental harms; consumers injured by faulty manufacturing and other corporate wrongdoing; and patients harmed by pharmaceutical and health care product companies’ defective drugs and medical devices, to name just a few. The Firm also advances critical ESG issues in its headline-grabbing shareholder litigation around the world. G&E has extensive trial experience with victories that include some of the largest class and group action recoveries in history, both in the U.S. and abroad.
In just the past 16 years, G&E has recovered over $30 billion on behalf of its clients. In the U.S., Firm wins include a $2.67 billion antitrust settlement with Blue Cross Blue Shield, a $1.6 billion mass tort settlement with Bayer linked to the Essure device, a $486 million securities litigation settlement with Pfizer, and a $90 million settlement with Twenty-First Century Fox to remedy claims of sexual harassment and racial discrimination. The Firm meaningfully advances corporate governance reforms, as it did in seminal cases against AIG, News Corp, and Toll Brothers. Internationally, the Firm’s successes include a $1.6 billion settlement with Steinhoff in South Africa and the Netherlands, a $1.5 billion settlement with Fortis in the Netherlands, and a $1 billion settlement with Royal Bank of Scotland in the UK, among others.
With talent, experience, resources, and foresight, G&E is dedicated to promoting fairness and to winning. We are formidable champions for our clients and we keep our sights on the goal: achieve the best possible outcome for plaintiffs.
