Shareholder Derivative Suits, Director and Officer Liability, and Corporate Governance Investigations and Cases


The experience of our litigators is complemented by attorneys who have served as corporate general counsel and have practical experience regarding the legal duties and responsibilities of officers, directors and managers. Financial institutions have retained us to conduct internal investigations into alleged wrongdoing, and we sometimes are retained as an outside law firm in order to protect the attorney-client privilege. Our attorneys have represented institutional clients, as well as individual directors and officers, in cases involving allegations of securities fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and other claims before state and federal regulatory agencies, including the Office of Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), Federal Reserve System (FRS), National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), and Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS).
