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. We secured more victories and reached more resolutions for defendants in federal securities cases than any other firm from 2015 to 2020, according to Lex Machina. In addition, more defendants trusted Skadden as their legal counsel in nationwide federal securities filings in 2020 than any other firm, according to Lex Machina’s 2021 Law Firms Activity Report.
