Financial Institution & Investment Fund Litigation
Every day trillions of dollars traverse the world at the speed of light in untold numbers of financial transactions. The Global Financial Crisis of 2008 taught us the risks of such a marketplace. New high-stakes disputes continue to arise on a daily basis as a result of misconduct or mistakes.
The trial lawyers at Pierce Burns LLP have represented the full range of stakeholders in such disputes, including banks, hedge funds, private equity firms, venture capital funds, and individuals.
Our trial lawyers have fought in the trenches during some of the most contentious disputes spawned by the 2008 crisis, including litigation over the very types of complex products that caused the collapse.
An alumnus of the nation’s top business schools, Managing Partner John M. Pierce is recognized by the Legal 500 as “a real trial presence,” and is especially “recommended” for M&A and Shareholder Litigation. (Pierce currently serves as outside General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer for a $100M family of venture capital funds.)
Disputes involving financial products and investments can be extraordinarily difficult to understand. This is where we excel. The trial lawyers at Pierce Burns LLP specialize in creating an understandable and compelling narrative that any judge or jury can follow. From the very beginning of their careers, our trial lawyers are taught to advocate in plain, persuasive ways that make the complicated seem simple. If your case goes to trial, you’ll get the best chance to win with us.
