Public company executives, boards of directors and general counsel are under extreme scrutiny in how they handle securities, discuss company performance and structure stock options and compensation packages. Work in the complex and shifting field of securities law requires not only legal proficiency, but also a clear understanding of the industries governed by today’s securities regulations.
Through years of in-depth involvement in the field, Brownstein’s Securities Litigation & Enforcement Group has established a reputation for knowing the law, the business and how to best represent our clients no matter what situation arises. Our securities litigators are part of the firm’s top-ranked trial team. Unlike many securities practices at other firms, our team has significant courtroom experience and has an impressive track record of achieving positive results.
The firm’s securities enforcement and litigation services include internal investigations, shareholder litigation, derivative litigation, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority arbitrations, and mergers and acquisitions litigation. We represent parties in court and arbitrations as well as in enforcement proceedings brought by self-regulatory entities and state and federal regulators.
Our clients include public and private companies, senior management and boards of directors, audit and special committees, investment banks, broker-dealers, mutual funds, hedge funds and private equity firms
We often team our securities litigators with the firm’s corporate attorneys to advise clients on disclosure and other corporate and securities matters, and tap the resources of our Government Relations Department and its knowledge of the inner workings of the Congress, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice.
