Securities Litigation, Enforcement, and White-Collar Criminal Defense Quarterly Newsletter, Winter 2008

In This Issue

Our first edition of the Securities Litigation, Enforcement, and White-Collar Criminal Defense (“SLEW”)

Quarterly Newsletter begins with a report on our trial win in California in In re JDS Uniphase Corporation

Securities Litigation, a class action in which the plaintiffs sought $20 billion in damages. Next, we discuss the acquittal of our client in a criminal matter in Massachusetts, and lessons for similar cases. We then assess

what the SEC will be focusing on in 2008, and review privilege issues to keep in mind when responding to

government inquiries. We follow with a discussion of major Supreme Court holdings in securities litigation,

including the decision just a few weeks ago in Stoneridge. We then turn to China and describe our work for

China-based companies and the unique resources we can bring to bear in such cases. We close with a report on our recovery, as a court-appointed receiver, of over $174 million for bilked investors.
