Financial Services and Securities
Hausfeld is at the forefront of litigating some of the most high-profile actions involving investment products, securities, and the banking industry in recent years. With global financial markets becoming increasingly complex and global investors facing an unprecedented array of investment options, our breadth of experience allows us to better respond to the evolving needs of investor clients.
Hausfeld served as Court-appointed lead counsel in a securities fraud class action against Siemens Hearing Instruments, Inc. (“Siemens”) on behalf of investors who sold HearUSA, Inc. common stock between January 18, 2011 and July 31, 2011; through Hausfeld’s efforts, participating class members ultimately received more than 115% of damages suffered.
Hausfeld represents parties that engaged in over-the-counter foreign exchange ("FX") transactions with the world's largest banks and their affiliates and investors who entered into FX transactions through domestic exchanges. This class action lawsuit alleges that these banks colluded to fix and manipulate the prices of FX transactions.
