Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP (“Robbins Geller” or the “Firm”) is a limited liability partnership with nine offices in San Diego, San Francisco, Washington, DC, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Nashville and Boca Raton.
The firm has obtained the largest securities class action recovery in six of the nation’s federal circuits and has shaped the law in the area of securities litigation and shareholder rights. The firm has tried more shareholder class actions and served as sole lead counsel in more major securities class actions than any other firm. Robbins Geller has been ranked as one of the top law firms in the world in both amount recovered for shareholders and total number of class action settlements in every annual ISS Securities Class Action Services Top 50 Report published since 2010. ISS reports that Robbins Geller has settled over 250 federal securities class action cases during that time (more than any other law firm in any jurisdiction) and has overseen the distribution of settlement proceeds of nearly $14 billion to class members (more than any other law firm in the world). On March 23, 2021, the latest SCAS Top 50 Report ranked Robbins Geller first for recovering $1.6 billion for investors in 2020 – more than double the amount recovered by any other firm – noting that Robbins Geller was “the only plaintiff law firm to surpass the $1 billion threshold.”
