Adam Hakki (New York-Litigation), the Firm’s Global Managing Partner and Head of the Firm’s Litigation Practice and Disputes Unit, and partner Lyle Roberts (Washington D.C.-Litigation) participated in Practising Law Institute’s “Securities Litigation 2023: From Investigation to Trial” program on March 20, 2023. The program took attendees through all the issues that can arise in the most complex securities matters — from the initial government investigation to the filing of the civil cases to either settlement or trial. The event was designed for securities practitioners, outside and in-house counsel, compliance officers, regulators, investment bankers and securities dealers.
Lyle served as a Co-Chair of the program and provided opening remarks. He also moderated three panels, “Commencement of a Civil Action: Filing the Complaint, Preparing the Motion to Dismiss, Coordinating Multiple Securities Litigation Actions,” “Seeking Resolution: Strategies in Mediation and Settlement of the Securities Case,” and “Ethical Issues in Complex Securities Litigation.” Adam spoke on the panel, “Securities Litigation: The Investigation: Coordinating Requests From Government Regulators.”
