Rivero Mestre’s securities and financial services litigation practice is focused on representing corporate defendants as well as individual officers and directors in class actions and large individual actions. We recently obtained the dismissal of a significant derivative claim and are currently defending a $168 million securities class action brought against a publicly-traded bank holding company.
We have also successfully defended broker-dealers in FINRA claims and have handled investigations and enforcement actions by the SEC. Given our white collar criminal practice, we are able to develop an integrated strategy to some of the most challenging and complex problems that businesses currently face.
