With more than 60 years of experience, Labaton Sucharow is a tenacious advocate for investors and consumers securing billions in landmark recoveries. The Firm offers complex litigation services in the areas of securities and corporate governance and shareholder rights. The Firm’s successful reputation is built not only on its team of more than 70 attorneys, but also on its industry-leading in-house investigators, financial analysts, and forensic accountants.
Main Areas of Practice: Securities Litigation: Labaton Sucharow is a highly regarded securities litigation powerhouse that provides global securities portfolio monitoring and advisory services to more than 250 institutional investors with collective assets under management in excess of $3.5 trillion. Through these actions, Labaton Sucharow has recovered more than $21 billion in the aggregate for investors. At every stage, from investigation to the litigation of claims, we work closely with our clients to provide the information and analysis necessary to fully protect their investments. The detailed nature of Labaton Sucharow’s methods for evaluating filed and proposed actions is reflected in the results we have achieved prosecuting class actions. The Firm recently secured victories in In re SCANA Corporation Securities Litigation ($192.5 million recovery); In re Nielsen Holdings PLC Securities Litigation ($73 million recovery); City of Warren Police and Fire Retirement System v. World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. ($39 million recovery); and Avila v. LifeLock, Inc. ($20 million recovery), among others. Along with securing newsworthy recoveries, the Firm has a track record for successfully prosecuting complex cases from discovery to trial to verdict. “Labaton Sucharow has a deep and experienced team in the securities litigation space. The expertise they display gives us a high degree of confidence in the successful litigation of our class action cases.” We have been named Securities Litigation Firm of the Year by The National Law Journal’s Elite Trial Lawyers and Securities Practice Group of the Year by Law360, among other accolades.
Corporate Governance and Shareholder Rights Litigation: Our breadth of experience in shareholder advocacy has also taken us to Delaware, where we press for corporate reform through our Wilmington office. These efforts have already earned us a string of enviable successes, including the recent historic $1 billion cash settlement, just weeks before trial, for former Dell stockholders—the largest recovery prior to judgment ever achieved in a fiduciary duty action in the Delaware Court of Chancery, and a $79 million partial settlement between individual defendants, in addition to going to trial as to Plaintiffs’ remaining claims against former Columbia executives and TransCanada Corporation, n/k/a TC Energy, among others. Labaton’s Corporate Governance practice has had a record two years including taking three cases through trial, settling two cases right before trial, and multiple other settlements. Our Delaware office has earned recognition as Shareholder Rights Litigation Firm of the Year by The National Law Journal’s Elite Trial Lawyers and as a Delaware Powerhouse by Law360.
Consumer, Cybersecurity, and Data Privacy Practice: Labaton Sucharow is dedicated to working on behalf of consumers who have been wronged by fraud in the marketplace. Built on our world-class litigation skills, deep understanding of federal and state rules and regulations, and an unwavering commitment to fairness, our Consumer, Cybersecurity, and Data Privacy Practice focuses on protecting consumers and improving the standards of business conduct through litigation and reform. Our team achieved a historic $650 million settlement in the In re Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation matter—the largest consumer data privacy settlement ever, and one of the first cases asserting biometric privacy rights of consumers under Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA).
Non-U.S. Securities Litigation: Labaton Sucharow’s Non-U.S. Securities Litigation Practice is comprehensive, covering all aspects of non-U.S. actions. To this end, the Firm not only identifies all non-U.S. actions and verifies a client’s eligibility but also performs a thorough investigation and analysis for each action to which our clients have exposure— the depth of which is wholly unique to the Firm. Labaton Sucharow serves, or has served, as liaison counsel for clients in more than 45 such matters and has helped secure significant recoveries for clients.
