Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP has a busy securities litigation practice in New York and Washington DC, and last year it handled litigation matters for some of the firm's largest corporate clients, including UnderArmour, Perrigo and Xerox. For UnderArmour, James Wareham in DC and Samuel Groner in New York secured the dismissal of a consolidated class action in which it was claimed that its officers made material misstatements regarding the company’s performance and future prospects, including allegations that it had failed to report declining consumer demand for its products. For pharmaceuticals company Perrigo, Wareham and DC-based James Anklam defended a 10b5 class action in which plaintiffs allege that the company's stock price fell due to, inter alia, overstatement of organic growth in the company and failure to disclose problems with the integration of Omega Pharma Invest. Other recommended partners in New York include Stephen JurisIsrael David and Scott Luftglass.
