Securities Litigation

Securities litigation involving public and private companies often comes at difficult times, such as when a company has announced an M&A transaction, during a downturn in the market, or after a company hits a bump in the road.  We assist companies and individuals in resolving these disputes as efficiently as possible, while always keeping the end goal in mind.  For some clients, that may mean negotiating a prompt and fair settlement that allows companies to focus on business growth rather than litigation.  For others, it means developing a comprehensive trial strategy for the full-throated defense of a company’s disclosures and representations.  We find that pursuing both of these strategies at once is often most effective, because it allows for a settlement on advantageous terms when possible, and leaves our clients fully prepared to defend their actions and statements in court when necessary.
