Greenberg Traurig, LLP is ‘a firm that is not afraid to try cases’. Its broad and deep practice has specialist securities litigation expertise focused on key client groups. Bradford Kaufman in West Palm Beach is global chair of the securities litigation practice, while New York-based William Briendel jointly leads the broker-dealer securities litigation group with Kaufman and West Palm Beach-based Tracy Gerber, and Robert Horowitz in New York jointly leads the D&O securities litigation team (which includes securities class actions) with Los Angeles’ Daniel Tyukody. Kaufman and Joseph Coates represented Roger Jenkins, former Barclays chairman of investment banking in the Middle East, in a securities fraud investigation by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office. Tyukody acted for Bridgepoint Education in a class action and two state court derivative actions alleging that the company intentionally manipulated its accounting in violation of generally accepted accounting principles. Washington DC-based Elaine Greenberg, whose clients include large investment banks, and Miami-based Hilarie Bass and David Coulson are also recommended.
