Attorney Profile

Jeremy A. Lieberman is the Managing Partner of the New York office of Pomerantz LLP. 

In 2016, The Legal 500 recognized Mr. Lieberman's legal acumen, stating: 

“In New York, Jeremy Lieberman is ‘super impressive – a formidable adversary for any defense firm.”

Mr. Lieberman led the litigation in In re Petrobras Sec. Litig., a closely-watched securities class actions arising from a multi-billion dollar kickback and bribery scheme involving Brazil’s largest oil company, Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras, in which Pomerantz was sole Lead Counsel. The biggest corruption in the history of Brazil has ensnared not only Petrobras' former executives but also Brazilian politicians, including former president Lula da Silva and one-third of the Brazilian Congress.

In January 2018, Mr. Lieberman achieved a historic $3 billion settlement for the Class. This is not only the largest securities class action settlement in a decade, but is the largest settlement ever in a class action involving a foreign issuer, the fifth-largest class action settlement ever achieved in the United States, and the largest settlement achieved by a foreign lead plaintiff.

Mr. Lieberman also secured a significant victory for Petrobras investors at the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, when the court rejected the heightened ascertainability requirement for obtaining class certification that had been imposed by the Third Circuit Courts of Appeals. The ruling had a positive impact on plaintiffs in securities fraud litigation.

Mr. Lieberman is Lead Counsel in a putative securities class action that alleges Barclays PLC misled institutional investors about the manipulation of the banking giant’s so-called “dark pool” trading systems in order to provide a trading advantage to high-frequency traders over its institutional investor clients.

Mr. Lieberman also serves as Lead Counsel in a number of the most high-profile securities class actions pending in the U.S. courts, such as In re Mylan N.V. Sec. Litig., In re Perrigo Co. Sec. Litig., In re Yahoo!, Inc. Sec. Litig. and In re Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. Sec. Litig

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 March 2017, he spoke at the ICGN conference in Washington D.C., regarding recent trends in foreign securities litigation. Mr. Lieberman also recently led a discussion regarding U.S. securities class actions in Paris, France.

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

Mr. Lieberman is admitted to practice in the State of New York; the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the Southern District of Texas, the District of Colorado, the Eastern District of Michigan and Northern District of Illinois; the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Second, Third, Fourth, Sixth, Ninth and Tenth Circuits; and the United States Supreme Court.
