About BL

Bernstein Liebhard LLP was established in 1993 as a boutique law firm to represent investors and consumers in complex class action, corporate governance and individual actions throughout the United States.  The Firm is a nationally-recognized plaintiff’s law firm that has earned a reputation for its securities and corporate governance, antitrust, consumer, appellate, mass torts, and whistleblower practices.  The Firm has received extensive recognition for its accomplishments by its peers and numerous legal publications.  In this regard, the Firm has been named to The National Law Journal’s “Plaintiffs’ Hot List’ recognizing the top plaintiffs’ firms in the country, for twelve consecutive years.  Bernstein Liebhard LLP is the only firm that has been named to this prestigious list for twelve years in a row.  The Firm was also listed for the seventh consecutive year in The Legal 500, a guide (in the words of its editor) to “‘the best of the best’ – the pre-eminent firms in the world’s strongest and most competitive legal market.”  In addition, the Firm has been listed in the 2012, 2013, and 2014 editions of Benchmark Plaintiff: The Definitive Guide To America’s Leading Plaintiff Firms & Attorneys.  Finally, the Firm has received Martindale-Hubbell’s highest ratings for legal ability (A) and ethical standards (V).

The Firm brings together a unique array of talent – including attorneys from prominent defense firms, district attorneys’ offices, as well as former federal circuit court and district court law clerks.  The Firm’s attorneys have been recognized for their accomplishments, and have a wide range of experience litigating complex and class action litigation.  With the support of the Firm’s investigative staff, the attorneys and paralegals at Bernstein Liebhard LLP have pursued hundreds of securities, consumer, commercial, and antitrust cases, recovering over $3 billion dollars for our clients.

The Firm’s clients are as diverse as the Firm’s many practice areas.  For example, the Firm represents large individual and institutional investors – including public and multi-employer pension funds – in securities and corporate litigation, where the Firm has not only obtained substantial monetary awards, but has effected corporate governance changes that have strengthened corporate responsibility, as well as the democratic rights of public shareholders.  The Firm also represents individuals and businesses that have been the victims of anticompetitive activity, and institutional and individual investors, public and private companies and corporations, bankruptcy trustees, creditor committees, financial institutions, small businesses, and other business entities in complex commercial litigation.  The Firm is committed to serving its clients through aggressive and innovative litigation, dispute resolution, and counsel.

The attorneys at Bernstein Liebhard LLP enjoy a national reputation for quality and integrity.  We have an established track record of success and the respect of the defense bar and D&O insurance carriers.  Our reputation has been built not only on the Firm’s successes, but also on the expectation that we will mount a vigorous prosecution; defense counsel know that we will take our cases to trial to achieve the maximum result obtainable for our clients.  We take pride in our accomplishments and the Firm’s leadership role in protecting the interests of aggrieved shareholders, consumers, institutions, and businesses.
