Although we are the dominant defense firm for securities matters filed in the Southeast and the Southwest (handling more securities class actions in the 5th and 11th Circuits than any other firm), we have a national practice with more than 40 dedicated securities practitioners in offices in New York, Washington, D.C., Georgia, Texas and California. Our seasoned litigators have acted on behalf of Global 100 clients as lead defense counsel in hundreds of securities class actions, derivative lawsuits, and SEC investigations and enforcement actions in courts nationwide.
