Skadden’s global securities litigation practice is widely regarded as one of the most preeminent groups of attorneys focused on challenging, high-stakes securities litigation matters — “bet-the-company” cases that demand a full range of skills, in and out of the courtroom. Our attorneys have secured more wins for defendants and resolved more cases as defense counsel in federal U.S. securities litigation than any other law firm since January 2017, according to data from Lex Machina.
