Fried Frank has one of the leading securities and shareholder litigation practices in the US and "play[s] an instrumental role in advising on the matters that shape Wall Street's financial infrastructure" (Benchmark: Litigation). We represent special committees, special litigation committees, officers, directors, companies and financial institutions in cases filed in state and federal courts throughout the country challenging corporate action. Our litigators have substantial experience in derivative actions, where we have a recognized expertise, and have litigated the full spectrum of fiduciary duty and corporate governance issues.
The Firm is equally prominent in other types of shareholder litigation. We are counsel in numerous class actions and other securities litigation and have broad experience in cases under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other provisions of the federal securities laws. We represent issuers, financial institutions, officers, and directors in these matters and are frequently called upon to act in novel litigation in courts across the country.
Clients involved in these matters turn to us not only because of our superior legal knowledge and breadth of legal services, but also because they appreciate our pragmatic, business-oriented approach and our 24/7 client service. Clients view our counsel as invaluable in bet-the-company situations and high-profile matters.
