Our clients include corporations, boards of directors, board committees, senior executives, and financial advisors facing shareholder suits or governmental regulatory proceedings. We’ve routinely represented our clients in complex securities litigations related to investigations and enforcement actions by agencies such as the SEC, DOJ, FINRA, and the New York Department of Financial Services.
Our attorneys have experience handling litigation spanning multiple jurisdictions and constituting breach of fiduciary duty and/or misleading statement allegations brought under Section 10b-5; proxy-related disputes; shareholder derivative suits; various class actions; fraud; insider trading; bribery; tax violations; and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act claims. We act for companies across a variety of industries, such as technology, investment management, investor relations, and financial services. Our litigation team often works closely with the firm’s experienced Mergers & Acquisitions team when litigation arises involving failed transactions, breaches of representations and warranties, alleged improper acts by company executives, or SPAC-related suits.
Our team takes a business-focused approach to all the matters it handles. While an early dismissal of a claim is almost always the goal, we take the time to meet with the key stakeholders to fully understand the impact that a case will have on an organization and how to best define and achieve a successful outcome. In those sessions, we review strategy and think expansively including implementing safeguards to reduce liability. These measures can include guiding internal investigations of allegations, establishing detailed records of executives’ sound business judgment, and utilizing D&O and/or E&O insurance.
