BurgherGray represents clients in all aspects of securities litigation, including federal securities class actions brought under the Securities Act of 1933 and Securities Exchange Act of 1934, state “blue sky” actions, merger litigation, derivative litigation, internal investigations, and government enforcement actions. Our team includes former high-ranking members of the Enforcement Division of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, certified public accountants, and partners with extensive experience litigating at both plaintiff and defense firms, who can provide a comprehensive view of any legal matter to best serve the interests of our clients.
Having litigated at both plaintiff and defense firms, the BurgherGray attorneys are particularly adept at identifying and vigorously defending against meritless claims at the outset and recognizing weakness at any stage of the litigation. Our attorneys also tightly control the discovery process to limit actions by opposing parties that needlessly drive up the costs of litigation, a frequent tactic in securities litigation to force companies to settle otherwise baseless claims. Our attorneys spot these attempts early and will forcefully defend our clients from such gamesmanship. BurgherGray attorneys have litigated securities matters in state and federal courts across the country.
