Plaintiffs’ Contingency Litigation

Plaintiffs’ contingency cases have always made up a significant portion of Gibbs & Bruns’ caseload.  In the firm’s 35 year history, we have collaborated with clients and employed a variety of creative billing methods in an effort to share risk with our clients.

Gibbs & Bruns was named the “Most Feared Plaintiffs Firm” by Law 360 and was twice named to The National Law Journal’s “Plaintiffs’ Hot List.”  From the firm’s $309 million verdict win in Avia Development Group v. American General Realty Investment Corp., a 1994 breach of contact case, to the firm’s current prosecution of $1.6 billion in securities fraud claims on behalf of 26 groups of institutional investors against accountants, trustees, and investment banks involved in the issuance of the debt securities of National Century Financial Enterprises, Gibbs & Bruns’ track record of successfully handling plaintiffs’ contingent cases is longstanding, consistent, and highly regarded.
