Vinson & Elkins’ Shareholder Litigation & Enforcement group consists of three primary practices—securities litigation, fiduciary duty litigation, and securities enforcement investigations. Our securities litigation practice focuses on state and federal securities lawsuits, including securities fraud class actions. Our fiduciary duty practice includes pre- and post-closing challenges to mergers and acquisitions, master limited partnership (MLP) litigation, derivative lawsuits, and other claims made against corporate officers and directors under Delaware law.
V&E lawyers routinely appear in Delaware Chancery Court, and have successfully argued cases in the Delaware Supreme Court. Our securities enforcement practice handles securities fraud class actions, fiduciary duty litigation, MLP litigation, derivative actions, lawsuits relating to corporate governance litigation, and proceedings before state and federal securities regulators. At times, our clients face components of each of these litigation areas at the same time, and our team works closely to maximize our clients’ chances of winning.
