Securities Litigation is one of McEwan Partners’ core practices. Our lawyers are recognized for their expertise in litigating securities-related disputes in the courts and before securities regulators.
Whether a matter encompasses class actions, proxy contests, M&A disputes, shareholder litigation or regulatory proceedings, our litigators have the experience that is needed to represent our clients. McEwan Partners litigators represent dealers and advisors in defending allegations of professional negligence and in regulatory investigations. We act for shareholders, directors, and companies in all types of securities litigation. The regulatory environment is complex and securities disputes are frequently multi-jurisdictional, with potential civil and criminal consequences. Our litigators identify and manage our clients’ interests in this dynamic environment.
We work cooperatively with transactional lawyers as part of cross-disciplinary teams in M&A transactions and change of control situations. We assist in planning for and defending against proxy contests. Our litigators understand the regulatory process and the importance of intelligent representation of our clients’ interests during regulatory investigations to avoid hearing and prosecutions. Although the best result for our clients is to avoid a regulatory proceeding, McEwan Partners has the experience and ability to defend any proceeding initiated against our clients.
