Securities Litigation Withstanding Scrutiny

The paths around and through securities litigation can profoundly affect a company’s future. Regulatory authorities in the U.S. and abroad continue to carefully scrutinize business practices, and shareholder litigation remains a force driving board strategy and policy. Our litigators are methodical, tenacious, and offer a potent combination of corporate knowledge and securities litigation experience to corporations and their officers and directors.

Reach

A Strong Defense

Our securities litigation practitioners regularly defend companies and their officers and directors in litigating claims of securities fraud and breach of fiduciary duty. We have defended against class action securities fraud claims, RICO claims, and claims alleging the sale of unregistered securities. We have extensive experience in handling DOJ and SEC Division of Enforcement inquiries, subpoenas, and federal enforcement proceedings. We also provide guidance on SEC disclosure issues.

Approach

Making It Count

Firm litigators have managed both large class actions and individual claims under federal and state statutes in matters, including disputes over restated financial statements, stock drop cases, alleged breaches of fiduciary duties, and motions seeking to block corporate reorganizations and mergers and acquisitions. We work closely with our corporate and transactional attorneys, as well as forensic accountants and other experts to obtain positive results in a cost-effective way.
