We have particular experience in:

- Breach of fiduciary duty
- SEC investigations
- Class certification and securities fraud
- Proxy contests and corporate control litigation

- Internal investigations
Our team brings together lawyers with extensive trial experience and from multiple practice groups, supplying both the substantive knowledge required to resolve disputes arising in this complex framework and the litigation experience needed to assess a fast-changing landscape and to avoid local litigation pitfalls. This experience includes defeating class certification, defeating derivatives suits and winning defense verdicts for our clients at trial. Our work with the SEC has also led to dropped charges against our clients and ended regulatory investigations.
Clients often call on us to conduct internal investigations, as well as help them develop or revise compliance programs. In addition to providing clients insights for best practices for avoiding and minimizing risk, our comprehensive internal investigations have headed off enforcement actions by expediting regulatory and government investigations.
