Litigation powerhouse Jones Day has a team of more than 100 securities litigators across the US, which has a strong track record in SEC investigations and high-profile litigation for financial institutions, corporations and individuals. It is ‘one of the top firms in terms of scale and the quality of client service‘, according to one source. Scott Fletcher in Houston and Henry Klehm in New York lead the practice. Fletcher secured a favorable settlement for Amedisys in a securities fraud class action arising from a press article that suggested the company might be taking advantage of the Medicare reimbursement system, which led to investigations by the DOJ and SEC. Among the other standout lawyers in the practice are 25-year veteran Robert Micheletto in New York; Walt Davis in Atlanta, who successfully defended HD Supply Holdings in a putative class action; Geoffrey Ritts in Cleveland, who achieved the dismissal of a class action alleging breach of fiduciary duties on behalf of insurer Erie Indemnity; Joan McKown in Washington DC; and Dallas-based Mark Rasmussen.
