Appellate Advocacy

Our lawyers have a long history of appellate victories that have shaped the law favorably for consumers and investors. The Firm’s appellate achievements span decades — from the Ninth Circuit’s 1975 decision in Blackie v. Barrack establishing the “fraud on the market” theory of securities fraud loss causation, to the Supreme Court’s decision in Tellabs, Inc. v. Makor Issues & Rights, Ltd. setting a uniform standard for pleading securities fraud claims.

We have the unique resources to pursue cases through lengthy and even multiple appeals. In addition, the Firm represents institutional investors as amicus curiae, and partners with other firms and solo practitioners on appeals of interest to investors and consumers.
