Our Practice

Beck Reed Riden LLP handles all forms of securities-related litigation, including governmental defense (DOJ, SEC, FINRA, and Massachusetts Securities Division investigations and proceedings) and private litigation (investor arbitrations, class action defense, and closely-held shareholder disputes), on behalf of companies and individuals.

We represent companies and firms in internal and SEC investigations related to allegations of securities fraud, as well as representation of corporate executives and employees in such investigations and follow-on litigation — especially where there is a potential or actual conflict of interest with the company under investigation.

In addition, we represent broker-dealers, registered representatives, and investors in FINRA proceedings and arbitrations. Our experience also extends to shareholder derivative lawsuits and disputes between owners of closely-held companies.

We provide pre-litigation counseling and actively seek the most expeditious and just result for our clients under the circumstances.  In cases where litigation is already pending, is unavoidable, or is necessary to obtain our client’s goals, we aggressively pursue the litigation (including any appeals), plaintiff or defense side, with the objective of obtaining a cost-effective and just result for our client.
