Ivy, an experienced class action attorney focusing on prosecuting securities fraud, is a creative and collaborative problem-solver with a proven track record of recovering hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of clients. Most recently, along with SLF, she successfully obtained a $10.5M recovery in Lowry et al. v. RTI Surgical Holdings, Inc. et al., a case arising out of manipulative accounting practices. That recovery represents approximately 30% of plaintiffs’ estimated damages, which is over 3x the typical amount recovered in securities fraud class actions of that size.
Before joining SLF, Ivy successfully prosecuted numerous securities fraud class actions resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in recoveries for injured investors at a national class action firm. Those cases include In re Cardinal Health, Inc. Sec. Litig. ($600M settlement); Jones v. Pfizer Inc. ($400M settlement); Fort Worth Employees’ Retirement Fund v. J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., et al. ($388M settlement); Silverman v. Motorola, Inc. ($200M settlement); In re HealthSouth Corp. Sec. Litig. ($109M auditor settlement); In re MGM Mirage Securities Litigation ($75M settlement); Massachusetts Bricklayers and Masons Trust Funds et al. v. Deutsche Alt-A Securities Inc et al.
