A company faced with a lawsuit or investigation involving federal or state securities laws requires a legal team that understands both the legal issues involved as well as the potential ramifications to the business. Our securities litigation and corporate governance dispute attorneys are experienced, creative thinkers who can quickly evaluate the factual and legal issues involved and develop a prudent and sensible strategy to achieve resolution.
PSH also has considerable experience handling corporate governance disputes, including shareholder derivative actions, class actions, and direct actions. Our attorneys have represented companies and their directors in expedited shareholder litigations arising out of mergers, acquisitions, and other change-of-control transactions. We frequently handle minority shareholder claims, claims of breach of fiduciary duty, and partnership disputes.
Unquestionably, we aim to resolve these kinds of matters quickly and quietly when the situation permits, and it is in our clients’ best interest to do so. When that is not possible or not the best approach to achieving our clients’ goals, however, we are bona fide trial lawyers who relish trying a case to a final judgment.
