United States > Dispute resolution > Securities litigation: defense

The securities and shareholder litigation practice at Greenberg Traurig LLP is truly national in scope. It is led by Brad Kaufman and Tracy Gerber in West Palm Beach, William Briendel in Westchester County, Robert Horowitz in New York and Daniel Tyukody in Los Angeles. ‘The partners have extensive experience and take the time to explain the nuances and confusing aspects of the case and proceedings‘, remarks one client. The firm’s presence in offices across the US sees it act in numerous cases arising from IPOs or secondary public offerings, which can now be filed in both state and federal court. The firm is busy with both securities class actions, derivative cases and regulatory enforcement matters. It remains one of the few firms to have tried a securities class action to a successful defense verdict. It also continues to be regarded as one of the leading practices for the defense of broker-dealers in securities and financial services litigation.
