The Securities Litigation lawyers at Vaughan Baio & Partners help a broad range of clients – both investors (including individual investors, institutional investors and investment funds) and companies (from startups to public companies and everything in between) resolve a broad range of securities-related disputes.
We help investors recover losses stemming from inaccuracies in offering memoranda. We defend issuers accused of misleading investors. And, we work with all clients to clearly define outcomes and objectives, develop and implement strategies for achieving their goals and resolve disputes in the most efficient and cost-effective means possible, whether through negotiations, litigation or alternative dispute resolution.
Our team of experienced litigation lawyers provides integrated solutions for crisis-related events, including:
- Internal investigations
- Whistleblower complaints
- Mergers and acquisitions litigation
- Securities class actions
- Derivative suits
- U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) enforcement actions and pre-enforcement proceedings
- U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) investigations and litigations
- Foreign exposures and investigations
When lawsuits are unavoidable, clients know they can count on the significant experience of the head of our Securities Litigation practice, Kevin Berry, to guide them to successful outcomes. Kevin has tried more than 200 jury trials to verdict. What’s more, he has a valuable familiarity with alternative dispute resolution mechanisms: mediations, arbitrations and negotiated mediations, both in prosecuting and defending claims and serving as an arbitrator and mediator in securities-related disputes. He can help clients identify the optimum forum for favorably resolving their disputes.
More broadly, our lawyers bring a deep and comprehensive understanding of the banking, insurance and reinsurance and real estate industries to every representation. We know the market, we know the players, we know the criteria for success and failure, and most importantly, we know how to solve problems and settle disputes.
