Founding Shareholder Michael Burg Named One of the Nation’s 44 Leading Trial Lawyers

Further, Burg Simpson founding shareholder, Michael S. Burg, is described as a “superb practitioner” and in addition to being designated a Leading Lawyer in the field of pharmaceutical mass tort, is also named among America’s 44 Leading Trial Lawyers. Other Burg Simpson attorneys recommend by the guide for a “high level of experience and competence” are shareholders Peter W. Burg, Kerry N. Jardine, Seth A. Katz and Janet G. Abaray. Associate Stephen J. Burg is also recommended.

“For Burg Simpson and our founder, Michael S. Burg, to be publicly recognized as national leaders for the quality of our mass tort legal work is an incredible achievement and one that we are extremely proud of,” said Burg Simpson managing shareholder, Kerry N. Jardine.

Mr. Jardine continued, “For the second successive year, Michael Burg has been named among America’s Leading Trial Lawyers. This is a well-deserved and fitting tribute to a man who has devoted his entire professional career to protecting the legal rights of the injured and disadvantaged. I would also like to pay tribute to the five other Burg Simpson attorneys whose accomplishments were also recognized. Truth be told, few firms in the United States can match the strength and depth of Burg Simpson’s team when it comes to handling complex litigation.”
