Securities Litigation

Economic expertise that powers creativity and results.

CRA brings substantial experience and expertise in economics, finance, accounting, statistics, and the financial industry to advise and assist clients in securities litigation.  Our experience in securities litigation is broad and diverse, including misrepresentations and omissions matters with 10(b)-5, Section 11, or Section 12 claims, minority actions, ERISA matters, and merger disputes.

We have worked on behalf of corporate and management defendants, auditors, underwriters, and plaintiffs.  In addition to our work in private securities suits, CRA has experience in related disputes including SEC investigations and enforcement proceedings, derivative actions, and insurance coverage disputes.

We work with consulting and testifying experts including leading academics from top-tier universities, former US SEC senior staff, former professors of finance, accounting and auditing, and economics, and other highly trained specialists (PhDs, CPAs, CFAs).
