Cahill has a prominent litigation practice with more than 150 litigators. We lead large-scale securities, insurance, reinsurance, antitrust, First Amendment, professional liability, intellectual property and white-collar litigations, as well as corporate and governmental investigations around the world.

Cahill lawyers try and argue cases in state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court, and a wide range of administrative agencies throughout the country, as well as before specially constituted domestic and international dispute resolution tribunals.

Our team includes several former Assistant U.S. Attorneys, alumni of the Securities and Exchange Commission and other lawyers who joined Cahill following distinguished careers in the Department of the Treasury, Commodity Futures Trading Commission and other government agencies and commissions.

Cahill advises boards of directors, special committees and directors and officers of publicly held companies in significant corporate governance matters and investigations. We are often called upon to assist clients with particularly sensitive matters involving corporate governance and ethical malfeasance, including accounting fraud and earnings management, market manipulation, disclosure violations, insider trading and fraud. The firm is widely regarded for its ability to develop remedial and compliance plans that appropriately address potential liabilities and provide appropriate responses to governmental and regulatory inquiries.

We have extensive experience conducting multinational investigations involving alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and commercial bribery laws. We also have a long track record conducting antitrust and price fixing investigations in a variety of markets including health care, pharmaceuticals, automotive industries, paper products, homebuilding and tobacco.

We represent parties in proceedings before Congress, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Department of Justice, the United States Attorneys’ Offices, the Department of the Treasury, the Office of the Inspector General, the State Attorneys General, as well as the New York Stock Exchange, FINRA and other prosecutorial and regulatory agencies.
