Strong legal advice leads to expedited resolution of securities case.

February 11, 2013

Executive clients involved in securities litigation against their former employer requested our advice on adding a cause of action focusing on ERISA claims, as had been urged by counsel for other executives who were involved in related actions but who did not have securities claims. After a focused review of the case, we advised against pursuing potential ERISA claims since we concluded that they were so precarious they might prejudice the legitimacy of the securities claims.  This advice allowed the securities case to move forward expeditiously, which was an important goal for our client.
