Our Securities Litigation & White Collar Defense attorneys have an outstanding record of successfully defending against a wide array of securities litigation, government investigations and criminal litigation. From multinational Fortune 100 companies to individual business leaders, we protect and defend our clients’ interests across a broad spectrum of industries. Our attorneys are recognized by the leading peer-review lawyer ranking publications (including Chambers, Benchmark Litigation and Best Lawyers in America) as leaders in their respective areas of expertise.

Our attorneys excel at defending against securities class action suits, shareholder derivative claims, mutual fund litigation, and merger and acquisition litigation. At any given time, we are handling matters in trial and appellate courts across the country. We have an excellent track record of terminating litigation at the motion to dismiss phase, avoiding the expense of lengthy discovery and trial. We also advise on corporate governance issues and structuring compliance programs and help guide clients safely and with common sense through internal investigations.

We have extensive experience handling SEC investigations and enforcement actions, and criminal litigation brought by the U.S. Department of Justice and state Attorneys General. We understand the extraordinary stakes involved in these matters and excel at minimizing exposure, often successfully convincing the Commission and other government agencies to take no action against our clients. We view each matter from a big-picture business perspective, which allows us to achieve the best bottom-line results for our clients.

Our team includes over two dozen former Assistant U.S. Attorneys and former leaders at the Department of Justice. With an extraordinary collective reputation, we are well prepared to handle the full range of challenges facing our clients, from government inquiries to full-scale enforcement actions, criminal trials and related civil lawsuits. While we have resolved many of these matters quickly and quietly in advance of litigation and public scrutiny, we are genuine trial lawyers who do not hesitate to try a case when we – and our clients – believe it is the best approach.
