Neil V. Getnick Named “Legal Lion” By Law360

Law360’s “Weekly Verdict: Legal Lions & Lambs” column named Neil V. Getnick a “legal lion” in connection with the firm’s recently announced record-breaking hedge fund tax case: “New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on Tuesday announced that Getnick & Getnick LLP and Labaton Sucharow LLP had secured the largest ever tax whistleblower recovery in New York state history. The whistleblower, whose identity remains protected, will receive 22 percent of the $40 million settlement with Alabama-based investment firm Harbert Management Corp. over unpaid state income taxes, the largest amount and percentage share ever for a whistleblower in a New York False Claims Act case not involving Medicaid. The whistleblower is represented by Neil Getnick of Getnick & Getnick LLP and Jordan Thomas of Labaton Sucharow LLP.”
