Cahill has a prominent litigation practice with more than 150 litigators. We lead large-scale securities, insurance, reinsurance, antitrust, First Amendment, professional liability, intellectual property, broker-dealer enforcement and regulatory, and white-collar litigation matters, as well as corporate and governmental investigations that are often international in scope. 

Cahill lawyers have been on the front lines of largescale securities litigation for nearly a century, focusing on the leading issues of the day. Cahill represents issuers, underwriters, bank lenders, placement agents, officers and directors, accountants, lawyers and broker-dealers in large-scale securities litigation and investigations throughout the world. 

Cahill advises boards of directors, special committees and directors and officers of publicly held companies in significant corporate governance matters and investigations. We are often called upon to assist clients with particularly sensitive matters involving corporate governance and ethical malfeasance, including accounting fraud and earnings management, market manipulation, disclosure violations, insider trading and fraud. 

Cahill’s broker-dealer practice ranges from narrow investigations regarding the activities of individual traders to some of the broadest global financial market inquiries ever undertaken for the largest and most prestigious global broker-dealers. 

Cahill’s lawyers are also trained in a comprehensive range of antitrust and competition matters, from class action litigation and criminal and civil investigations to M&A and other strategic transactions. Cahill litigators represent clients in major civil and criminal investigations and have extensive experience defending antitrust suits asserting price fixing, bid rigging and boycotts, among other claims.

The firm is widely regarded for its ability to develop remedial and compliance plans that appropriately address potential liabilities and provide appropriate responses to governmental and regulatory inquiries.

We have extensive experience conducting multinational investigations involving alleged violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and commercial bribery laws. 

We represent parties in proceedings before Congress, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Department of Justice, the United States Attorneys’ Offices, the Department of the Treasury, the Office of the Inspector General, the State Attorneys General, as well as the New York Stock Exchange, FINRA and other prosecutorial and regulatory agencies.
