Securities litigation is a notoriously complicated field of law, with numerous pitfalls that trip up new practitioners who do not have the foresight to see them coming. Unfortunately, this can expose you or your securities firm to substantial legal liability, and potentially even jail time.
Having experienced attorneys on your side to combat allegations of securities fraud or wrongdoing is essential. Only if your legal team has years of experience and has guided countless previous clients through the minefield that is the world of securities litigation can you rest assured that mistakes will not be made that imperil your future.
The Senior Securities Litigation Lawyers at Oberheiden P.C.
One thing in particular makes Oberheiden P.C. stand apart from other securities litigation law firms out there: All of our attorneys are senior lawyers. We do not employ any junior associates on our staff, or even any paralegals or legal secretaries. We only hire lawyers that have numerous years of experience in representing clients in securities litigation matters.
This means several things for our clients and the legal representation that they receive and can count on.
It means that all of your communication with Oberheiden P.C. goes straight to one of the senior lawyers on your case. You do not have to hope that what you tell a legal secretary will make its way up the chain of command, or that it will not get skewed before it reaches the lawyer that needs to hear it. Instead, when you call Oberheiden P.C. you talk directly with one of our senior attorneys.
It also means that all of the legal representation and all of the strategies that we develop come from seasoned legal minds.

With our experienced investigators doing much of the legwork and fact-finding in your case, you can rest assured that nothing will get missed and that Oberheiden P.C.’s senior attorneys have all of the information that they need to mount a vigorous defense on your behalf.

With Experience Comes Foresight in Your Case
Lots of lawyers tout their experience in certain areas of the law. The implication is that they have represented so many clients in the past that they know how cases tend to develop, will likely have seen something similar to your case in the past, and so have a better understanding of how to defend you.
While this is true in all fields of law, it is especially important in securities litigation because of how easily and how often cases can escalate into something far more precarious than they had started out. Civil allegations of financial misconduct can uncover evidence that is criminal in nature. Whistleblowers can successfully persuade the government to intervene in their case. Regulator audits pass information on to law enforcement agencies, who then conduct their own investigations.
When cases can change with little to no warning, you need legal representation from lawyers who can read between the lines and see the developments coming. With foresight acquired from countless cases in securities litigation – including some as prosecutors and investigators for some of the federal agencies that are most involved in securities regulation – the attorneys at Oberheiden P.C. have become adept at predicting where your case will go as it moves forward. This intuition helps them create legal defense strategies that are not just effective in the short-term; they are also likely to weather future escalations and complications.
