Attorney Profile

Jeremy A. Lieberman is a Co-Managing Partner at Pomerantz LLP and Managing Partner of the New York office. Mr. Lieberman focuses his practice exclusively on securities litigation, representing clients nationwide in a variety of related matters including shareholder class and derivative actions.

Mr. Lieberman graduated from Fordham University School of Law in 2002. While in law school, Mr. Lieberman served as a staff member of the Fordham Urban Law Journal. Upon graduation, Mr. Lieberman joined a major New York law firm as a litigation associate, specializing in complex commercial litigation.

Mr. Lieberman is Lead Counsel 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. 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 an historic $2.95 billion partial settlement for the Class. This is not only the largest securities class action settlement in a decade, it 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 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. In November 2017, Mr. Lieberman achieved precedent-setting victories for investors, when the Second Circuit Court of Appeals held that direct evidence of price impact is not always necessary to demonstrate market efficiency to invoke the presumption of reliance, and that defendants seeking to rebut the presumption of reliance must do so by a preponderance of the evidence rather than merely meeting a burden of production.

Mr. Lieberman played an integral 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, the second-largest options backdating settlement to date.

Mr. Lieberman is a frequent lecturer regarding current corporate governance and securities litigation issues. In March 2017, Mr. Lieberman spoke at the ICGN conference in Washington D.C., regarding trends in foreign securities litigation and recently led a discussion regarding U.S. securities class actions in Paris, France.
