Firm Overview:
G&E’s continued commitment to excellence is evident through the firm’s unparalleled results (including achieving more securities settlements in excess of $100 million than any other law firm). G&E’s practice offerings include securities, corporate governance, false claims, antitrust, bankruptcy and consumer claims litigation. G&E has an outstanding international reputation, with significant experience litigating against corporations in Germany, India, Italy, France, Japan, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. For over 18 years G&E has remained a recognized leader in the area of complex litigation and has recovered over $28 billion for its clients in the last ten years.

Main Areas of Practice:  

Securities Litigation:
G&E has built a national and international reputation as a leader in securities litigation. In both class action and “opt out” cases, the firm has attracted widespread recognition for protecting investors’ rights and recovering damages. The firm has been lead counsel in many of the largest securities class action recoveries in US history, including a $3.2 billion recovery against Tyco International and multi-hundred million dollar recoveries against companies such as General Motors, DaimlerChrysler and Royal Dutch Shell. G&E regularly serves as lead counsel in national securities class actions and works closely with public and private institutional investors across the globe as lead plaintiffs. G&E was the first law firm in the country to argue the provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act allowing an institutional investor to be appointed as lead plaintiff in a securities class action.

Corporate Governance:
G&E’s experience in advising institutional investors with respect to corporate governance matters is second to none. The firm has successfully achieved considerable benefits for shareholders in connection with corporate transactions and breach of fiduciary duty claims, including: a $420 million settlement against the directors and majority stockholder of Digex, Inc., the largest reported settlement in Delaware Chancery Court history; and a settlement against the board of Caremark Rx Inc., resulting in an additional $3.19 billion in cash consideration. The firm has achieved many landmark results in litigation over companies’ corporate governance practices, including the pioneering case that invalidated “dead hand” shareholder rights plans. The firm has also achieved significant victories in the area of backdated options and is regularly consulted by some of the world’s largest public pension funds and hedge funds. G&E has particular expertise in governance matters involving Delaware corporations and is well prepared to advise its clients regarding current and upcoming developments in legislation.

False Claims Litigation:
When corporate fraud impacts governments, False Claims Acts allow whistleblowers, acting in the name of the government, the right to seek redress against any company, entity or person. Whistleblowers who initiate false claims cases are entitled to a portion of the money, or a bounty, generally ranging from 15- 30% of the government’s total recovery. G&E counsel work with whistleblowers in all phases of the process and have achieved some of the most successful cases brought under the False Claims Act, including a $2.3 billion recovery in a case against Pfizer. In total, G&E whistleblower attorneys have returned a total of $5.4 billion to federal and state governments.

Antitrust Litigation:
Attorneys in G&E’s antitrust practice group have decades of experience prosecuting complex individual and class actions on behalf of individuals and corporations of all sizes that have suffered from wrongdoing. G&E currently serves as lead or co-lead counsel in several antitrust actions involving claims against manufacturers for monopolization, illegal price fixing and other violations of antitrust law. In these types of cases, G&E attorneys have obtained settlements on behalf of direct purchasers totaling well over $1 billion. G&E’s antitrust attorneys have been recognized by courts and colleagues across the country, regularly speak at major conferences and contribute materials to academic and other publications.

Bankruptcy Litigation:
Widely recognized for innovative and aggressive representation of institutional investors, G&E brings that same approach to its bankruptcy litigation practice. G&E represents ad hoc and official committees, institutional and distressed investors, indenture trustees, litigation trustees and other parties in litigation arising out of major US Chapter 11 bankruptcies and other US and offshore/cross-border insolvency matters. The firm’s bankruptcy attorneys have a practiced understanding of the Bankruptcy Code and other applicable insolvency law to seek and obtain substantial recoveries for clients.

Consumer Claims Litigation:
G&E’s newest practice area investigates and prosecutes claims on behalf of consumers injured by the wrongful acts of manufacturers and retailers in courts nationwide. G&E’s consumer claims attorneys have a particular forte in biotechnology and agricultural litigation and are presently leading cutting-edge cases in those areas, as well as cases involving defective or misleadingly-marketed products including automobiles and computers. G&E attorneys in the consumer claims group have been appointed as lead or co-lead counsel in scores of cases and have obtained recoveries in excess of $1 billion.

Foreign Litigation & International Arbitration:
G&E’s attorneys have significant experience in international securities litigation matters, having overseen cases in foreign jurisdictions and asserted claims in US cases under foreign law. The firm’s innovation in its pursuit of claims under the laws of foreign nations has led to greater protections and recoveries for investors. G&E was the first US-based firm to initiate litigation in a foreign jurisdiction on behalf of institutional investors and is currently involved in more active international securities matters than any other US law firm. Aside from international litigation, G&E also advises institutional investors with regard to international arbitrations, which provide the remedy of choice for many investors who have suffered expropriatory, arbitrary, discriminatory or other unfair treatment.
