Securities Class Actions

Keeping the financial markets honest

Stockholders lose billions of dollars in value each year in the wake of fraud and other misconduct within public companies, and government agencies lack the resources to police all companies listed on U.S. exchanges.  Private stockholder litigation is a potent tool for investors to recover investment losses caused by corporate misconduct.

We represent individual and institutional investors in class actions under federal and state securities laws in jurisdictions across the country.

Our view is simple: not all conduct is actionable, but by pursuing the cases that are, we help to regulate the public financial markets. This is how stockholder litigation is supposed to work.

"Private securities litigation is an indispensable tool with which defrauded investors can recover their losses—a matter crucial to the integrity of domestic capital markets."
