In an increasingly global securities landscape, understanding the complex nuances of securities litigation and how claims are resolved is vital. Waging a strong defense in such cases demands a thorough knowledge of the substantive and applicable procedural laws, as well as an excellent ability to resolve disputes, before or at trial.
Sullivan & Worcester has extensive jury and non-jury trial experience and frequently appear before regulators including FINRA, SEC and state securities regulators. Our litigators work closely with lawyers in the firm’s other practice areas, including corporate, securities, corporate governance and white-collar defense to develop winning strategies for a wide range of securities cases – such as high-stakes shareholder lawsuits, federal and state enforcement actions, internal investigations and arbitrations, including representations in multi-district litigation proceedings and cross-border commercial disputes.
Recent highlights have underlined our legal counsel for clients involved in stock manipulation lawsuits, stock option backdating litigation, disputes over the purchase or sale of stock, bonds and other securities, fraud and securities class actions – such as those where we defended clients in lawsuits brought by investors of foreign funds involved in the Madoff Ponzi scheme.
