Client Services


You will never find a more forceful advocate in the courtroom than Berman Tabacco —or a more straightforward partner. Some plaintiffs' law firms inundate potential clients with mass mailings and high-pressure solicitations. We prefer to build our practice case by case, client by client.

Berman Tabacco’s 30-year record of success, coupled with our measured approach, has made us a law firm of choice for institutional investors, more than 100 of which have retained us as outside counsel. We provide portfolio monitoring, case evaluation and litigation services to many of the largest public pension funds in the world — funds that safeguard retirement and disability benefits for millions of public employees and union workers.

Why have so many institutional investors chosen Berman Tabacco to help fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities? Our record of results, for one thing. We have achieved recoveries well above the professional average. We are also pioneers in using shareholder lawsuits to get defendant companies to improve their corporate governance.

Institutional investors depend on Berman Tabacco for more than strictly litigation. The firm’s portfolio monitoring service alerts fund staff to fraud-related losses. We evaluate pending cases to help funds decide whether to pursue a lawsuit. We also notify our clients of potential new settlement claims.

Our clients come to us because it is the right fiduciary choice. They trust us to protect their members’ financial interests — and safeguard their professional reputations.
