NEW DAY, SAME SUCCESS
It’s a new day for Bern Ripka LLP, but the dedication, experience and
success forge forward.
A new firm in a new space across from Grand Central Terminal, Bern
Ripka brings several of its finest leading lawyers and invaluable staff,
including thousands of individual cases, and continues to be a national
leader in mass tort litigation, particularly pharmaceuticals.
Bern Ripka also continues to represent only plaintiffs who have
suffered catastrophic injuries as well as victims with asbestos-related injuries, including mesothelioma, and consumer class actions
and securities matters. The firm expects to maintain its significant
leadership role in major cases throughout the country.
For nearly 40 years, Marc J. Bern has represented clients in hundreds
of mass tort, malpractice and liability issues. Bern, a 10-time Super
Lawyers honoree and multiple Top 100 honoree, is currently lead
lawyer in the 2012 Aurora theater shooting civil litigation, representing
more than half of the injured victims. Bern was also lead lawyer in the
Costa Concordia cruise ship case in Italy and lead lawyer nationally in
the firefighters hearing-loss case.
Alan S. Ripka, a 26-year trial lawyer and three-time Super Lawyers
honoree, continues his concentration in products liability and medical
malpractice cases, where he is a member of the New York Law Journal’s
Verdicts & Settlements Hall of Fame for medical malpractice. For four
years in a row, Ripka has secured one of the largest personal injury verdicts
in New York, including drug-related, medical malpractice and auto cases.
Regularly litigating against the biggest and richest corporations in the
world, Bern Ripka attorneys are prepared to work around the clock
for clients and go the extra mile. The firm and its members have been
a part of cases that have produced more than $2 billion since 2000,
including the World Trade Center litigation that resulted in $850
million for 10,000 rescue and recovery workers.
