High-stakes securities litigation demands the attention of sophisticated counsel experienced with civil and criminal proceedings, internal investigations, and SEC and other federal and state regulatory actions. The outcomes of these cases can be vital to you and your company’s future.
Our team has an extraordinary record of success representing clients in securities class actions, derivative suits, litigation, and SEC or other regulatory investigations and enforcement proceedings. As a firm that has tried and won securities cases, we will not hesitate to take a case to trial when it is necessary and in your best interest. We believe that our reputation as excellent trial attorneys helps to force settlements on terms that are very favorable to our clients.
