Our Practice Covers Complex Business and Financial Services Litigation
Our partners enjoy deep experience in disputes involving the federal securities laws, mergers and acquisitions litigation, accounting fraud, stockbroker misconduct, class actions, anti-terrorism litigation and a wide variety of other business torts. We have also honed our ability to master and to translate for jurors and arbitrators complex topics like the development of medical devices and biologic treatments for medical conditions, the market forces that impact product pricing, and the operation of international securities markets and financial services enterprises. We bring the same devotion necessary to master those complex topics to every litigation and arbitration.
