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, from 2015 to 2020 Skadden secured more victories and reached more resolutions for defendants in federal securities cases than any other firm, and from 2018 to 2020 we served as defense counsel in more federal securities cases in the U.S. than any other firm and were active in the most jurisdictions among defense firms.
