The Investor Protection Litigation Department is uniquely positioned to litigate securities cases in both the US and English Courts. Our lawyers have a national and international reputation in US class action cases, US individual actions and UK securities litigation.
Investors have several options when a fraud or other material misstatement has become public. For those cases that proceed in the United States, the investor can seek to lead a US class action on behalf of all similarly situated investors, or can 'opt-out' of the class and assert an independent claim or alternatively remain a passive class member and allow another investor to represent the class and pursue claims on its behalf. In the UK and Europe, investors have a rapidly increasing set of options.
Our lawyers have expertise in all aspects of securities litigation including fraud claims and non-fraud prospectus liability claims under US Federal, US State, English and European Law.
We work closely with investors to evaluate claims, assess litigation and jurisdiction options and help our clients determine the best course of action.
