Securities Fraud Cases

In recent years, the number of corporate financial scandals has grown at an alarming rate. The trend of officers and directors defrauding and misleading investors has continued at a steady pace.

Tom O’Connell has defended lawsuits (including class action securities lawsuits) on behalf of accused clients in cases involving issues including:

  • Federal securities law violations
  • Shareholder rights violations
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act violations (accounting fraud, false corporate filings)
  • Breach of fiduciary duties
  • Insider trading
