With more than 50 years of experience, Labaton Sucharow is a tenacious advocate for investors and consumers. The Firm offers complex litigation services in the areas of securities, antitrust, consumer protection, and corporate governance and shareholder rights law, as well as whistleblower representation. Labaton Sucharow represents many of the largest institutional investors worldwide and has secured billions of dollars in landmark recoveries. The Firm’s successful reputation is built not only on its team of more than 90 attorneys, but also on its industry-leading in-house investigators, financial analysts, and forensic accountants.
Main Areas of Practice:
Securities Litigation: The Firm continues to secure precedent-setting decisions and significant monetary recoveries on behalf of investors. After achieving historic settlements from cases stemming from the financial crisis, the Firm has maintained its momentum in prosecuting high-profile and cutting-edge actions against corporate behemoths like PG&E, BP, and Goldman Sachs. In addition, the team played an authoritative role in shaping securities litigation laws through a landmark victory in the Supreme Court with Amgen Inc. v. Connecticut Retirement Plans and Trust Funds. The Firm also evaluates the viability of claims that may be pursued through opt-out or direct actions.
Antitrust and Competition Litigation: The Firm is equally active in the antitrust arena on behalf of clients damaged by anticompetitive conduct. The mission of the Firm’s Antitrust and Competition Litigation Practice is to promote the private enforcement of antitrust laws in order to preserve free competition in the marketplace. The Firm has recovered billions of dollars on behalf of its clients in major antitrust class actions around the country.
Corporate Governance and Shareholder Rights Litigation: As corporate leaders continue to engage in fraudulent conduct and other mechanisms to unjustly enrich themselves, the Firm initiates numerous derivative and M&A-related suits to protect shareholders.
Whistleblower Representation: The Firm established the first national practice focused exclusively on protecting and advocating for SEC whistleblowers. The practice plays a critical role in exposing securities fraud and creating necessary corporate reforms.
Non-U.S. Securities Litigation: The Firm’s Non-U.S. Securities Litigation Practice is dedicated to working with non-U.S. counsel to analyze potential claims in all international jurisdictions in which it is possible to seek a recovery. The Firm’s attorneys have almost three decades of experience advising institutional investor clients on the risks and benefits of pursuing claims in non-U.S. forums. The Firm serves or has served as liaison counsel for numerous clients in more than 40 non-U.S. actions, several of which have achieved significant recoveries.
