Partnering With Outside Counsel to Make It Right

Our firm has a track record of working with referring counsel to deliver results. Whether you are a solo practitioner, individual litigator, or corporate counsel, you shouldn’t have to go it alone. We’ve got the experience and know-how to help you win your case. Our firm has been involved in achieving some of the largest class action recoveries in some of the most complex, document-intensive, and high-profile data breach class actions.

In particular, BLG has participated in and/or has been approved as class counsel in numerous high-profile cases including the Equifax Data Breach Litigation, No. 1:17-MD-02800-TWT (N.D. Ga.), one of the largest MDLs ever in terms of affected individuals. We were a part of the team securing a settlement on behalf of over 145 million people and joined by two federal agencies and most state attorneys general, defending the settlement on appeal, and overseeing the administration of the settlement.

BLG was also counsel of record in the following data breach cases: In Re: Home Depo Data Breach Litigation, No. 14-MD-2584-TWT (N.D. Ga)(data breach class action involving 40 million consumers resulting in settlement worth at least $13 million); In Re: Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc.
