WilmerHale in Top Five of Nation’s Leading Securities Litigation Practices

March 2, 2006

Touting WilmerHale as “no stranger to representing big name clients,” Securities Law360 places the firm in the top five in its survey of the 100 most frequently hired securities litigation practices in the United States. The rankings are based on the number of new securities fraud cases filed last year in federal courts nationwide.

The article highlights the firm’s representation of Qwest Communications in investigations into accounting irregularities; Credit Suisse First Boston, Goldman Sachs, and Bank of America in pending litigation against Refco’s underwriters; and the Washington Post and Bob Woodward in the investigation of the Valerie Plame leak.

These recent matters are among the hundreds of securities class actions, derivative litigation, and SEC enforcement matters defended by WilmerHale’s Securities Department over the last decade.
