Our securities litigators are among the most respected and experienced practitioners in the profession. We were recently ranked the second busiest securities litigation practice in the nation, as published in the Law360 Litigation Almanac. Although our securities litigation practice is active, our Firm has a culture of hands-on case management. Our partners closely supervise and actively work on our cases.

Lane Powell is Your Pacific Northwest Law Firm®, but our geography does not limit the reach of our practices. Our securities litigation practice is a good example. We serve a wide range of clients in litigation around the country. Our securities litigators have defended companies such as Alltel, Boeing, Cutter & Buck, Expedia, Jones Soda, L&L Energy, Liberty Mutual, Micron Technology, Nordstrom, OfficeMax, Primo Water, Safeco, TriQuint Semiconductor, and Zumiez.

Our securities litigation team comprises both attorneys whose practices are devoted to securities litigation and accomplished trial attorneys with a distinct emphasis in securities litigation. We have an excellent track record in obtaining dismissals prior to any discovery. But when a case survives a motion to dismiss, our attorneys know how to prepare a case for trial, and our trial attorneys stand ready to try even the largest securities class action.

Our team also includes former senior SEC enforcement and Department of Justice officials, including the former U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, and former state securities regulators. We can ably navigate government enforcement matters, whether it is a stand-alone matter or related to private securities litigation.
