Securities Litigation and Shareholders’ Rights Dispute

Securities Litigation

The attorneys at Gordinier Kang & Kim LLP have extensive experience representing the rights of companies and its shareholders.  Many businesses are closely held private corporations with a relatively small number of shareholders.  Others are public companies with thousands of shareholders with periodic and rigorous reporting requirements to the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Regardless of the size and type of corporation, disputes and claims may arise from the distribution and sale of securities, or the accuracy of disclosures contained in the company’s SEC filings or financial statements, or where securities regulatory agencies or shareholders challenge the conduct of the officers and directors of a corporation.    

The attorneys in our securities litigation practice have deep knowledge and experience representing privately held companies, fortune 500 companies, financial services firms, national accounting firms and broker dealers in all forms of securities claims and regulatory investigations.  

  • Class Action and Derivative Litigation:  We represent shareholders, public companies, individual directors and officers, and auditors in securities fraud class actions, shareholder derivative suits and other securities related litigation.
  • D&O Claims and Transactional Litigation:  We represent companies and individual officers, directors and shareholders in corporate governance claims for breaches of fiduciary duties, corporate waste, misappropriation of corporate opportunities and fraud.
  • Representation of Broker Dealers:  We have extensive experience representing national and regional securities brokerage firms in legal proceedings in state and federal court and in FINRA proceedings involving claims of fraud, unauthorized trading, improper sales practices, unsuitable investment recommendations, improper supervision and churning.
