Returning value to investors and upholding the integrity of the market

Securities and investment fraud can occur as the result of material misrepresentations and omissions, fraudulent transactions, accounting irregularities, stock option backdating, and massive Ponzi schemes. Lieff Cabraser represents investors across America in class, direct (opt-out), derivative, and other actions. Our clients are public pension funds, union funds, and non-public institutional investors including mutual funds, as well as high net-worth and individual investors.

Current Securities Fraud Investigations

Remarkable recoveries, principled advocacy

Lieff Cabraser securities attorneys have tried two federal securities class actions to jury verdicts, prevailing in both, including a $170 million verdict. Working with co-counsel, we have achieved verdicts, judgments, and settlements in excess of $2.1 billion for our clients in securities and investor fraud cases.

Driven by a strong sense of social responsibility, our attorneys uphold the highest standards of professional behavior. In each case we litigate, we seek to obtain the maximum recovery under the law for our clients and to promote greater corporate responsibility and enhance the integrity of the marketplace for all investors.

Comprehensive services

In addition to litigation, we offer, without charge, investment portfolio monitoring, expert case evaluation, recoverable damages assessments, and corporate governance advice. Our sophisticated, web-based, client-accessible tracking system enables us to quickly identify and calculate any losses suffered by our clients.

Selective, trial-ready, and possessing an outstanding reputation

We vigorously investigate securities and investment fraud cases on behalf of our clients without charge to them. We recommend litigation only when liability is clear and damages are substantial and recoverable.

We assume every case we litigate may proceed to trial and prepare accordingly. This approach enables us to recover a higher percentage of losses for our clients than is typical in securities and financial fraud cases. As a result, one U.S. District Court Judge observed that Lieff Cabraser “is one of the foremost law firms in the country in both securities law and class actions.” Lieff Cabraser also serves as co-chair of the Securities and Financial Fraud Litigation Group of the American Association for Justice.
