WHISTLEBLOWER CLAIMS

We understand the critical role whistleblowers play in exposing fraud, corruption, and unlawful practices. Our whistleblower practice is committed to protecting individuals who bravely come forward to report wrongdoing, both in the public and private sectors.

PROVEN RESULTS

Our lawyers have repeatedly obtained significant recoveries from corporate and individual defendants in courts or across a negotiating table, including serving as lead or co-counsel in the following groundbreaking cases:

    • In Re Tyco International Ltd. Securities Litigation, MDL No. 02-1335-PB (D.N.H)

Secured a landmark $3.2 billion settlement, encompassing the then-largest securities class-action recovery from a single corporate defendant ($2.975 billion) and the second-largest auditor settlement ($225 million). The case involved acquisition accounting fraud and the misappropriation of company assets, leading to the imprisonment of Tyco’s former CEO, Dennis Kozlowski.

    • In re Petrobras Securities Litigation, 1:14-cv-09662 (S.D.N.Y.)

Played a leading role in achieving a $3 billion securities class-action settlement, marking the largest payout by a foreign issuer in securities class action history. Notably, the settlement represented a sixty-five percent premium over settlements of various opt-out plaintiffs who did not participate in the class action.

    • In re Bank of America Corporation Securities Litigation, 09-MDL-2058 (S.D.N.Y.)

$2.425 billion settlement to resolve a securities class action related to Bank of America Corporation’s 2008 acquisition of Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc. The settlement also included significant corporate governance improvements.

WHAT COURTS SAY

Demonstrating our track record of success, courts have routinely recognized our attorneys’ exemplary performance and acknowledged our dedication to obtaining successful outcomes on behalf of our clients and class members.

“In light of the substantial risk, uncertainty and delay associated with proceeding to summary judgment and trial, the $3.2 billion settlement amount is an outstanding recovery for the class.” U.S. District Judge approving the then largest cash payment made by a corporate defendant in the history of securities litigation. In re Tyco International Ltd. Securities Litigation, 02-MD-01335 (D.N.H., Dec. 19, 2007). 

“Additionally, the Court finds that Class Counsel’s performance was in many respects exceptional, with the result that, as noted, the class is poised to enjoy a substantially larger per share recovery than the recovery enjoyed by numerous large and sophisticated plaintiffs who separately settled their claims.” U.S. District Judge approving a $3 billion settlement, then representing the largest securities class action settlement in a decade and the fifth largest in history, In re Petrobras Securities Litigation, 14-CV-9662 (S.D.N.Y., June 6, 2018). 

“Co-lead Counsel have conducted the litigation and achieved the Settlement with skill, perseverance and diligent advocacy [with] complex factual and legal issues and was actively prosecuted for over three-and-a-half years.”  U.S. District Judge approving a $2.4 billion cash settlement to class members and agreement to implement significant governance reforms.  In re Bank of America Corp. Securities, Derivative, and ERISA Litigation, 09-MDL-2058 (S.D.N.Y., Apr. 8, 2013).
