Representative Engagements

  1. Two of the firm's partners served as plaintiffs' class counsel in what may have been the longest-running securities fraud litigation ever seen in this country.

    Result: The case involved a six-week jury trial on behalf of nine separate plaintiff classes in which judgments were obtained against all of the principal defendants and that was sustained on appeal, including two visits to the United States Supreme Court. In the process our clients benefited from six separate partial settlements aggregating in excess of $60 million.

  2. Following the collapse of a bank holding company and its lead banking subsidiary, Caplin & Drysdale was retained to represent the principal executive officers and directors of the company in a combined class action securities fraud and derivative suit seeking damages in excess of $100 million.

    Result: Following denial of class certification and during the pendency of defense motions for summary judgment, the case was settled for a small fraction of the damages initially sought.

  3. Caplin & Drysdale represented investors in a federal class action involving alleged violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the regulations promulgated thereunder.

    Result: After successfully opposing a motion to dismiss, the case was favorably settled.
