By: Billion Dollar Lawyers Association
In order to qualify for membership, individual litigators or collective law firms must handle cases that can result in a monetary outcome for their clients. Personal injury, employment disputes, commercial litigation, and environmental law, for example, may meet these strict requirements.
As the name of this prestigious association suggests, membership also requires that applicants have at least one verdict or settlement in excess of $1 billion during their legal careers. Applicants may also qualify if they have accrued $1 billion or more in recoveries when all of their case results are combined into a total sum. Applicants and their claims will be thoroughly investigated for verification.
The initial membership application costs $5,000 and the annual renewal fee is $1,000. In addition to being connected and networked with some of the most renowned attorneys and law firms in the world, members will also greatly benefit from being able to use The Billion Dollar Lawyers Association logo on their websites, business cards, letterheads, and more. It is estimated that less than 1% of all attorneys and firms in the United States will actually qualify for membership.
Attorney Andrew Sacks of Sacks Weston Diamond LLC is the first attorney to become a member of the Association. In his most notable case, Sacks secured a verdict in 2001 of $1.06 billion. This recovery, obtained on behalf of a landowner whose property was dangerously contaminated due to radioactive materials controlled by The Exxon Mobil Corporation, is the largest verdict for a single landowner in US history. His other settlements total more than $3.5 billion.
