Corporate Securities Lawyers at Cohen, Placitella & Roth Work Tirelessly to Protect Clients’ Interests in NJ & PA.

Cohen, Placitella & Roth represents a select group of institutional investors, including public pension funds, union funds, and private investors. Our job is to monitor fund holdings, to report on suspected corporate fraud or other wrongdoing, recommend action, and litigate when necessary. Legal fees are contingent on recovery, and all costs of litigation are advanced by the firm.

Our team includes seasoned attorney/accountants, trial attorneys, and the former controller of a major U.S. city, which provides us unique and valuable trial and accounting expertise. The firm is nationally active in securities fraud and corporate governance litigation.

Investment fiduciaries determine if the portfolio has been damaged by securities fraud or corporate wrongdoing and develop the appropriate legal strategy. Time is critical. Once securities fraud class litigation starts, an institutional investor has only sixty days to decide whether to serve as lead plaintiff. In order to make this decision, a client must understand all aspects, including assessment of the merits of the case, estimated losses, and other corporate governance considerations.

Our Experienced Lawyers Will Help You Determine if You Should Remain in the Class Action Lawsuit or Go Out on Your Own

Cohen, Placitella & Roth performs this extensive research before recommending or proceeding with such a case. Investors may decide to remain a member of the class, bring an individual action, or institute some type of corporate reform claim.

The responsibility and authority of being appointed lead plaintiff is significant. Lead plaintiffs have authority with regard to settlement, including economic recovery and corporate governance changes. The lead plaintiff also has the opportunity to speak directly to the board of directors and senior management on issues associated with corporate ethics, reform, organization, and governance.
