Securities Litigation

Securities litigation is a complex area of the law that requires skilled representation from an experienced lawyer.

At TencerSherman LLP, our San Diego attorneys represent corporations, officers and directors, shareholders and individuals in a wide array of securities litigation and governmental investigation. We defend class-action lawsuits, including securities class actions and mergers and acquisitions-related class actions, as well as shareholder derivative claims. We represent clients in investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and other governmental agencies.

Securities litigation typically involves investments in public and privately held companies. A typical securities lawsuit alleges that a company or brokerage firm did not follow SEC guidelines or other federal and state laws when handling investments with the public. Some examples include:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Broker fraud
  • Insider trading
  • Unauthorized stock trading
  • Investment fraud
  • Accounting malpractice
  • Market manipulation
  • Profitability misrepresentation

We understand business objectives, corporate finance and accounting. Securities violations can severely damage the interest of any business or individual, and it is essential that you retain an experienced securities litigation attorney. Our knowledgeable litigators aggressively fight for our client’s rights in any securities matter.
