When facing the challenges of litigation, it helps to have an experienced partner on your side. Husch Blackwell’s Financial Litigation team has the expertise to fit your litigation needs.
Our attorneys represent clients in all aspects of financial litigation, including creditor’s rights litigation, lender liability defense, trust and estates litigation, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) disputes, labor and employment litigation, and franchise litigation.
Our attorneys represent broker-dealers and investment advisors in customer litigation and FINRA arbitrations involving claims of unsuitability, churning, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud. We defend and prosecute claims of breach of non-competition agreements, misappropriation of trade secrets and breach of fiduciary duties on the recruitment of registered representatives.
We can advise you on the avoidance of claims of lender liability. When borrowers do allege or bring claims under lender liability theories, our attorneys have extensive experience in defending such claims.
Husch Blackwell’s Securities Litigation attorneys have broad experience representing corporations, directors and officers, broker-dealers, and other securities industry professionals in all types of securities litigation and arbitration, as well as regulatory matters involving the SEC and other regulatory bodies. We have successfully represented defendants in federal and state securities law class actions, defending executives and directors of both public and private companies in derivative shareholder litigation, and representing companies and individual defendants in investigative and enforcement actions before the SEC. We also defend directors, officers and controlling shareholders in challenges to mergers and acquisitions, including going private transactions.
