SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Gold Bennett Cera & Sidener LLP, a leading plaintiffs’ class action law firm based in San Francisco with a nationwide practice, announces the renaming of the firm to CERA LLP and the opening of the firm’s Boston office. Led by Solomon B. Cera, the firm’s Managing Partner, CERA LLP will continue to specialize in complex litigation in both federal and state courts with a focus on securities, antitrust, and consumer fraud class actions.

“Our firm is synonymous with high quality, aggressive advocacy on behalf of our clients in complex class action litigation.
