Securities Litigation and Corporate Governance Counsel with a Proven Record
Our securities litigation and corporate governance group is devoted to representing public and privately held companies, and their directors and officers. The team is led by Eric Landau and Travis Biffar, lawyers with over 50 combined years of experience that have together served as lead defense counsel in hundreds of cases arising under federal and state securities laws. While our team notably has been successful in defeating lawsuits early, often obtaining complete dismissals before engaging in costly discovery, for cases that progress beyond the initial stage our team has considerable experience at trial and on appeal.
Outside of the courtroom, the team has broad experience in advising companies, boards of directors, officers, board committees, and senior management on their fiduciary duties and managing risk through appropriate corporate governance practices. Thomas Whitelaw has the knowledge and experience to aid corporations at all stages of their existence.
