Vedder Price

Public Companies & Director and Officer Liability Vedder Service

We represent public companies and their directors and officers in connection with federal and state government securities investigations and enforcement actions, white collar criminal investigations and internal or special investigations relating to alleged violations of federal securities laws and/or whistleblower allegations, including but not limited to alleged violations of Rule 10b-5, violations of Section 17(a), books and records violations, internal controls violations and related SOX 304(a) clawback claims.

Oftentimes, government securities investigations involve follow-on securities fraud class actions and/or shareholder derivative demands alleging breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, unjust enrichment and other wrongful conduct. We have the capability to defend companies and directors and officers in both federal and state securities and derivative litigation.
