Overview

Securities litigation is sometimes preceded by, or occurs parallel with, an internal investigation under the supervision of a special committee of the board of directors.  Our lawyers are frequently called on to advise such special committees in conducting internal investigations into alleged insider trading, improper revenue recognition, breaches of fiduciary duty, and violations of U.S. federal and state statutes including the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.  In recent years, we have conducted independent investigations for the audit committees of numerous Fortune 500 companies.

Gibson Dunn's securities litigators know that early and aggressive crisis management can enhance a corporation's credibility with law enforcement officials, regulators and the investment community and head off or limit corporate exposure.
