Practice/Industry Group Overview
Our highly-regarded lawyers have handled securities litigation across the country for over 40 years, representing public companies and their officers and directors in class action suits, individual suits by shareholders, derivative actions alleging breaches of fiduciary duty, contests for corporate control, insider trading, and Securities and Exchange Commission investigations as well as in parallel bankruptcy and securities actions where the issuer has become insolvent.
Our lawyers have a broad range of experience in a number of industries. For example, in the insurance industry, we represent issuers, underwriters, auditors and other professionals in misrepresentation and negligence actions relating to securities issuances and transactions. In the corporate arena, our experience also includes claims arising in the context of public offerings, private offerings, tender offers, rights offering, transactions by insiders, financial and regulatory disclosures and filings, and investment advice. Additionally, in light of the recent credit market crisis, we are often called upon to represent banks and other lenders, home builders and mortgage companies, bond insurers and credit rating agencies in numerous private class actions and derivative suits alleging misrepresentation and incomplete disclosures.
