WHITE COLLAR DEFENSE
Our securities litigation practice maintains a record of success defending clients in every type and every stage of securities litigation in key jurisdictions throughout the United States. We have significant experience with federal and state securities class actions, derivative litigation, merger litigation, U.S. Attorney and SEC enforcement investigations and litigation, internal investigations, and other matters involving shareholder suits and corporate governance. Our successes include dozens of early dismissals and trial victories, including the largest securities class action jury trial in history.
Our securities enforcement practice is led by four former SEC officials who now defend corporations, financial institutions, accounting firms, and individuals facing investigations and
litigation brought by the SEC and various state and federal regulatory agencies. In many cases, regulators have closed their investigations with no action taken against our clients. In others,
we have obtained favorable settlements with the regulator. Whenever litigation arose, we have successfully represented
our clients through trials in federal and state courts as well as in front of SEC administrative judges.
The strength of our investigations + white collar defense practice is our depth and diversity of experience. Our team includes former federal and state prosecutors, senior government regulators, White House and FBI counsel, national security and privacy specialists, and veteran defense lawyers. With former high-ranking members of the U.S. DOJ and SEC in our ranks, we are able to anticipate prosecutors’ and regulators’ next steps, plan and execute efficient and thorough investigations, and quickly pinpoint key issues identifying the best path forward from the outset.
