Stoll Berne represents state and private institutional funds in securities class actions and individual "opt out" cases. We advise funds on the benefits of pursuing appointment as the lead plaintiff or opting out of an existing class action, and we have served as lead counsel and trial counsel in national class actions. We also advise funds on corporate governance issues and litigation strategies for enforcing shareholder rights and encouraging change in the corporate culture of large Wall Street firms and public companies.
We have represented the State of Oregon and the Oregon Public Employees' Retirement Fund as Special Assistant Attorneys General on numerous cases seeking to recover losses to the Fund due to fraud or material misstatements.
Our securities litigation attorneys also have many years of experience in representing private institutional investors in securities fraud cases, both in court and arbitration.
