Securities Class Action Litigation

In securities fraud class action litigation, investors injured as a result of wrongful conduct by corporate executives – including the dissemination of false and misleading statements to the investing public – can seek to recover their investment losses.

Shareholder Derivative Litigation

A shareholder derivative lawsuit is brought by a current shareholder of a corporation, on behalf of the injured corporation, to enforce legal claims belonging to the corporation. This type of litigation usually involves claims of corporate mismanagement, waste of corporate assets, or self-dealing, and are often asserted against the executive officers and/or directors of the injured corporation.

Merger & Acquisition Litigation

In this type of litigation, shareholders can assert legal claims against the officers and directors of a corporation if the corporate fiduciaries violated their fiduciary duties in connection with a corporate transaction, including a sale of the corporation.
