Financial Services Litigation

Standing beside our clients.

Husch Blackwell has broad experience managing financial litigation in federal and state courts on matters as varied as creditors’ rights, lender liability and franchising. We represent corporations, directors and officers, broker-dealers and other securities industry professionals in litigation and arbitration, as well as in matters involving the Securities Exchange and Commission (SEC) and other regulatory bodies.

Our attorneys also represent broker-dealers and investment advisors in customer litigation and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitrations involving claims of unsuitability, churning, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud. We defend and prosecute claims of breach of noncompetition agreements, misappropriation of trade secrets and breach of fiduciary duties on the recruitment of registered representatives.

Representative Experience

  • Represented Oneida Nation of Wisconsin in a class action suit alleging that establishments owned by Oneida Nation printed receipts displaying more than the last five digits of credit cards and their expiration dates, an alleged violation of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act. Case was dismissed after we argued that the plaintiff had no basis to sue Oneida Nation based on the doctrine of Indian tribal immunity. The ruling was upheld on appeal and denied certiorari by the U.S. Supreme Court.
  • Represented Litex Industries after they acquired a company whose inventory was overstated by $1.771 million. In a suit against the accounting firm that had performed an independent audit before the purchase, our attorneys secured a $1.45 million jury verdict for Litex.
