G&E’s experience in U.S. securities litigation is truly second to none. In both class action and opt-out cases, the Firm represents public and private institutional investors across the globe, attracting widespread recognition for protecting investors’ rights and recovering their damages. G&E regularly serves as lead counsel in securities class actions, and has secured some of the largest securities class action recoveries in U.S. history, including a $3.2 billion settlement with Tyco International and multi-hundred million dollar recoveries from companies such as Pfizer Inc. ($486 million), Global Crossing ($448 million), Refco Inc. ($422 million total class recovery), Marsh & McLennan ($400 million), Delphi Corp. ($325 million), General Motors ($303 million), DaimlerChrysler ($300 million), Safety-Kleen Corporation ($276 million), Merck & Co. ($215 million), J.P. Morgan ($150 million), and Parmalat ($110 million).
The Firm also has extensive experience representing institutional investors in opt-out litigation, and typically recovers for its clients multiples of the amounts they would have received in their respective class cases. G&E takes a quality-over-quantity approach, filing a limited number of cases and actively investing its resources to prosecute those cases for the benefit of its clients.
