Securities Litigation

OVERVIEW

Corporations, officers and directors are under constant scrutiny by state and federal regulators, and by plaintiffs’ lawyers. Navigating the securities litigation maze of laws, regulations and claims demands both specialized expertise in securities law and the highest level of litigation skill.

Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of securities law plus decades of litigation experience. The practice includes former state and federal prosecutors, fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, and several attorneys ranked among the leaders in related disciplines by publications including Chambers USA and The Best Lawyers in America.

As a top law firm with offices in Boston, New York, Paris and Washington D.C., our attorneys represent public and private companies, boards and committees, individual officers and directors, broker/dealers, underwriters, professional service firms and investment advisors. We have experience in the following areas:

  • fraud allegations
  • financial disclosure disputes
  • class actions
  • derivative suits
  • insider trading allegations
  • corporate governance litigation
  • Appraisal rights
  • Proxy interests
  • Blue Sky claims
  • SEC and FINRA investigations
  • Department of Justice actions

The lawyers in our Securities and Corporate Litigation Practice have represented audit committees of public companies in “whistle blower” and other internal investigations. Foley Hpag advises mutual funds, hedge funds and other institutional investors on potential securities fraud claims, and litigation options, including whether to pursue litigation, whether to participate in class action litigation, and whether, and on what terms, to settle such matters. We also counsel investment advisors, hedge funds, financial firms, independent broker dealers and brokers on their myriad obligations under state and federal securities law. 

Securities litigation is one of the most intricate and contentious practice areas in the legal world. A&S Jurisprudentia Ltd’s counsel can keep it from becoming a consuming distraction.
