Bernstein Liebhard LLP is pleased to announce that the firm has been included for the second consecutive year in the 2013 edition of Benchmark Plaintiff: The Definitive Guide to America’s Leading Plaintiff Firms & Attorneys. Bernstein Liebhard has been recommended as one of the top litigation firms in New York and partners Stanley D. Bernstein, Sandy A. Liebhard, and Jeffrey M. Haber have been recognized as “local litigation stars” for their securities work – a distinction earned by being recommended consistently as “reputable and effective litigators by clients and peers.”

As described by its editors, Benchmark Plaintiff focuses exclusively on plaintiff litigation, “highlighting firms and individuals responsible for bringing the cases that matter.” Ranking recognition was achieved through targeted questioning that specifically solicits peer feedback regarding firms conducting plaintiff work.

In particular, Benchmark Plaintiff emphasized the success of Bernstein Liebhard’s securities litigation practice group.  The publication cited the firm’s involvement in In re Initial Public Offering Securities Litigation, which settled for $586 million in 2012.  In addition to highlighting Mr. Bernstein’s role in the IPO litigation, the editors noted that he “possesses more than 30 years of experience handling litigation involving securities fraud, shareholder and derivative litigation and antitrust.”
