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. According to Lex Machina, for the period January 1, 2019, through June 30, 2024, Skadden has defended more federal securities actions and federal securities class actions than any other firm.Securities Litigation Brochure Image
