Private Securities Cases


Well before the SEC Whistleblower Program was established, securities litigation was the bedrock of our firm. For decades, our lawyers have secured major results, reforms and recoveries in high-stakes securities cases. In keeping with this national reputation for excellence and consistent recognition by the bench and bar, we are one of the top five law firms most frequently appointed by the courts as lead counsel in securities class action cases.

On behalf of over 200 prominent institutional investors, we have successfully taken on a veritable Who’s Who of Corporate America and Wall Street.
