Jeremy A. Lieberman

Pomerantz LLP

New York, NY, USA


Jeremy A. Lieberman became associated with the Firm in August 2004, and became a partner in January 2010. Mr. Lieberman serves on the Firm’s Management Committee. At Pomerantz, Mr. Lieberman specializes in securities litigation. He has had an active role in a number of high-profile securities class and derivative actions, including Comverse Technology Sec. Litig., in which he and his partners achieved a historic $225 million settlement on behalf of the Class, which was the second-largest options backdating settlement to date.

Mr. Lieberman was lead counsel in In re Medicis Corp. Sec. Litig., in which the Court recently approved an $18 million settlement, and is lead counsel in In re China North East Petroleum Corp. Sec. Litig., and In re Columbia Laboratories, Inc. Sec. Litig., and co-lead counsel in In re Mellanox Technologies, Ltd. Sec. Litig. and In re Linn Energy LLC Sec. Litig.

In In re China North East Petroleum Corp. Sec. Litig., Mr. Lieberman achieved a significant victory for shareholders in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, whereby the Appeals Court ruled that a temporary rise in share price above its purchase price in the aftermath of a corrective disclosure did not eviscerate an investor’s claim for damages. The Second Circuit’s decision was deemed “precedential” by the New York Law Journal, and provides critical guidance for assessing damages in a § 10(b) action.

Mr. Lieberman currently represents a number of banks and financial institutions in a class action on behalf of lenders arising out of the London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) rate rigging scandal.

Mr. Lieberman regularly consults with Pomerantz’s international institutional clients, including pension funds, regarding their rights under the U.S. securities laws. Mr. Lieberman is working with the firm’s international clients to craft a response to the Supreme Court’s ruling in Morrison v. Nat’l Australia Bank, Ltd., which limited the ability of foreign investors to seek redress under the federal securities laws. Currently, Mr. Lieberman is representing several UK and EU pension funds and asset managers in individual actions against BP plc in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

Mr. Lieberman is a frequent lecturer regarding current corporate governance and securities litigation issues. In December 2013, he spoke at the Annual Provident Funds Coalition Conference in Eilat, Israel on Morrison and its implications for TASE investors. He also recently led a discussion regard U.S. securities class actions in Amsterdam.

Mr. Lieberman graduated from Fordham University School of Law in 2002. While in law school, he served as a staff member of the Fordham Urban Law Journal. Upon graduation, he began his career at a major New York law firm as a litigation associate, where he specialized in complex commercial litigation.
