Securities Litigation

Responsible investing has become popular, but corporate wrongdoing can cause investors significant financial damages.

Responsible investing has become popular not only with the public but also business, especially when considering the long-term viability and profitability of traditional investment strategies. However, corporate wrongdoing can cause investors to suffer significant financial damages. 

Litigation can recover these damages and ensure companies are transparent and uphold their obligations. 

The United States has a history of shareholder litigation which is now shaping the global landscape for collective redress.

Our securities department delivers legal and shareholder engagement solutions to investors across the world. 

We seek to represent financial institutions, superannuation schemes, asset managers and owners, sovereign wealth and pension funds, and Taft-Hartley pension and benefit funds. 

Our legal team has represented hundreds of the world’s leading institutional investors in shareholder litigation across international jurisdictions, obtaining billions of dollars in collective and direct individual redress actions.
