Financial Institutions

When investments do not perform as expected, investors often demand recompense. Financial institutions, insurers, publicly traded companies, brokers, financial advisers and other investment professionals increasingly encounter individual and class action lawsuits seeking to recoup losses.

At Litchfield Cavo LLP, our attorneys know the devastating impact these lawsuits can have on our clients' reputations and bottom lines. Since 1998, our firm has been continuously building a reputation among clients and the legal community as a leader in nationwide financial services defense litigation. Excellence stems from abiding by efficient, effective strategies grounded in our attorneys' knowledge in this complex and ever-changing area of law.

When litigation ensues, the firm offers a talented team of trial attorneys with accrued records of success across several areas of financial law. We regularly appear in court and in arbitration before Financial Industry Regulatory Authority arbitrators.
