Client Applauded Barrasso Usdin After Securities Arbitration Victory
Barrasso Usdin recently achieved a significant victory for one of its multi-national brokerage clients in a confidential securities arbitration. Following the victory, the client had high praise both for the firm and for partners Jamie Berger and George Freeman in its submission to Chambers USA. Counsel for the client, who has worked with Berger and Freeman for over a decade, described Berger as being “as smart a lawyer as you will find in the legal industry. She possesses impeccable judgment to easily discern between what is needed, preferable, and unnecessary. She finds out-of-the-box solutions to complicated legal problems. Because of her pleasant countenance, she quickly gains the trust and confidence of those before whom she advocates, particularly in the courtroom.”
The client portrayed Freeman “as a lion of the securities arbitration bar as well as, perhaps, the best in-court trial lawyer I have ever seen. His brilliance is appreciated, not through an extravagant presentation (there is not a haughty cell in his body), but through his precise and incisive examinations, response to inquiries, and arguments before tribunals.”
The client was equally complimentary of the firm: Barrasso Usdin works “smarter, more creatively, and more efficiently than other firms. In addition to charging New Orleans rates for New York quality work, they work more efficiently and short-circuit typically drawn-out disputes with superior lawyering and relationship management with opposing counsel. Where many firms either want to overwork a case to leave no stone unturned or short cut the process to stay within budget, Barrasso Usdin uses its intellect, experience, and creativity to find the best, cost-effective strategy to put their clients in the greatest position of strength.”
