Securities, Shareholder Disputes and Corporate Governance

Vorys litigators regularly represent issuers, auditors, broker-dealers, and individual officers and directors in securities class actions, derivative actions, individual investor claims, regulatory investigations, corporate takeovers, and other actions arising out of acquisitions and corporate control disputes.  

In such engagements, we have addressed issues brought under the federal securities laws, the Blue Sky laws of Ohio and other states, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, and other statutory and common law claims that may be asserted in connection with corporate transactions and disputes.  Our attorneys also have significant experience in advocating our clients’ interests in other important aspects of such lawsuits, such as arguing in favor of reasonable limitations on discovery, resisting class certification, and developing grounds for excluding expert testimony under the applicable rules of evidence.
