Securities Litigation Attorney Job Description

It is very essential for a Securities Litigation Attorney to be capable of managing both the legal challenges and business implications at the same time. It is generally viewed that securities cases often extend beyond private civil litigation to affect other aspects of the business. The attorneys practicing in this area get an opportunity to represent companies, officers and directors, Audit Committees, broker-dealers, investment banks, outside professionals and others in all aspects of securities and corporate litigation and investigations. They also represent their clients at all stages of investigations and litigation, including trials and appeals. Sometimes the attorneys need to work closely with the firm\\\\\\\'s corporate and transactional lawyers in advising clients. Conducting internal investigations relating to allegations of insider trading or other misconduct is also an important part of their duty. Securities litigation cases are often surrounded by related issues, including crisis management and communications, internal investigations, and government and regulatory inquiries. Attorneys can represent cases in federal and state courts, in arbitration and mediation, and before the major regulating bodies. However, the intention of these attorneys must be to obtain voluntary dismissal or early settlement, craft a motion to dismiss, obtain limitations to a class certification or present the evidence needed for a summary judgment.
