U.S. Securities Litigation
Wolf Haldenstein has a successful history of helping individual and institutional investors — including public pension funds, Taft-Hartley funds and health and welfare benefit funds — protect their assets and recover losses. The Firm has litigated complex securities actions for more than forty years and has recouped more than $7 billion on behalf of investors, while also obtaining significant corporate governance reforms.
When institutional investors suffer significant losses from corporate wrongdoing such as making misleading public statements, using deceitful accounting practices, backdating options, insider trading or other fraudulent activities, they may bring a securities class action under federal or state law.
Wolf Haldenstein’s attorneys have extensive experience litigating securities fraud claims in both state and federal court that include claims of securities violations, insider trading, antitrust violations and financial and accounting malfeasance. As a result, Wolf Haldenstein has obtained significant securities litigation recoveries from such corporations as AIG, Goldman Sachs & Co., and JP Morgan Chase Bank. The significant recoveries and corporate governance reforms achieved by the Firm resulted in Wolf Haldenstein being recognized by courts throughout the United States as being highly experienced in complex litigation, particularly with respect to securities and shareholder rights actions.
Wolf Haldenstein’s U.S. Securities Litigation practice is fully supported by our Business Practice and Investor Protection practice groups, enabling our attorneys to leverage expertise in complex class actions, securities fraud, antitrust, accounting malfeasance and corporate investigations to protect institutional investors.
