For the fourth time in the last five years, and for a second consecutive year, Law360, the online outlet for legal news and analysis, named Ropes & Gray’s business & securities litigation practice as one of the nation’s leading securities litigation practices for 2014 for its results in high-stakes representations, including:

  • Keurig Green Mountain - Ropes & Gray client Keurig Green Mountain received notification from The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it is closing the previously disclosed four-year inquiry into accounting and disclosure matters at the company and would not be recommending any enforcement action against the company or any of its current or former employees. Ropes & Gray also secured dismissals of three securities class actions against Keurig Green Mountain in Vermont federal court that were all appealed to the Second Circuit.
  • Baker v. Goldman Sachs & Co.; Roth v. Goldman Sachs & Co. – Ropes & Gray secured a unanimous jury verdict that was recently upheld by the First Circuit in favor of Goldman Sachs following a five-week trial in federal court. The case was recognized as a “Legal Lion” by Law360.
  • OTK Associates v. Friedman Ropes & Gray represented investor OTK Associates in its three-month battle for control of Morgans Hotel Group, which pitted OTK’s board nominees against a slate of incumbents led by billionaire Ronald Burkle. Ropes & Gray enabled OTK to prevail in its proxy contest and get all seven of its nominees elected to the board.
