($63 million settlement in securities fraud class action – ranking among the top-ten of all such settlements ever achieved in the District of Minnesota – involving alleged price-fixing scheme between Patterson and its main competitors in the dental supply industry); and
  • In re Perrigo Company plc Securities Litigation ($31.9 million settlement in securities fraud class action regarding Perrigo’s receipt of a nearly $2 billion tax bill from Irish Revenue, and involving significant victories at summary judgment rarely obtained by plaintiffs in a securities fraud case on the key elements of falsity and materiality).

($28.25 settlement), Brixmor Property Group, Inc. ($28 million settlement), and GTT Communications, Inc. ($25 million settlement).
