Areas of Practice
As lead or co-lead counsel, Jeff Squire has prosecuted scores of class and derivative actions on behalf of the investors in many corporations, including: Activision Blizzard, Inc., Adelphia Communications Corporation, AT & T Corporation, Bennett Funding Group, Bisys Group, Inc., Ford Motor Company, El Paso Pipeline Partners, L.P., Enbridge Energy Corporation, L.P., The Limited Corporation, Morrison Knudsen, Washington Group, Inc., Waste Management, Inc., and Woolworth, Inc. In such cases, he has recovered over one billion dollars for the investors he has represented.
His ability to prosecute sophisticated class actions successfully has often been the subject of judicial recognition:
“You have acted the way lawyers at their best ought to act. And I have had a lot of cases in 15 years now as a judge and I cannot recall a significant case where I felt people were better represented than they are here… I would say this has been the best representation that I have seen.” In re Waste Management, Inc. Securities Litigation.
“Nonetheless, in this Court’s experience, relatively few cases have involved as high level of risk, as extensive discovery, and, most importantly, as positive a final result for the class members as that obtained in this case.” In re Bisys Securities Litigation.
