Williams & Connolly’s Securities Litigation practice has been named by Law360 as a “Securities Practice Group of the Year” for 2015. This annual series highlights practice groups whose clients have notched the biggest litigation victories of the year. Winners are recognized for the size, complexity and significance of the litigation matters on which they worked.
Over the last year (and for several years now), Williams & Connolly’s clients have achieved remarkable victories in securities litigation across the country. In New York, for instance, the New York Stock Exchange turned to Williams & Connolly in a series of high-profile class action suits regarding high-frequency trading sparked by the publication of Michael Lewis’s book Flash Boys, while NASDAQ hired the law firm to handle a Second Circuit appeal arising out of the Facebook IPO litigation. In California, the law firm’s clients, Intel Corp. and its officers and directors, won a derivative case arising out of the settlement of the High Tech Employee Antitrust Litigation. And, in the Supreme Court, Williams & Connolly was lead counsel in Omnicare v. Laborer’s District Council, one of the most closely watched business cases of the last Supreme Court term.
