Securities Litigation


Individual Investors
Over the last thirty five years, Stoll Berne has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors.  We have represented more investors in securities and stockbroker fraud cases than any other firm in Oregon, whether it be individual cases, class actions, arbitration, or in state and federal court. We are one of the few law firms who have taken securities class action cases to trial.

We routinely represent investors in stock, bank, and annuity cases against brokerage firms and individual brokers before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). We also bring court cases for victims of locally-based scams involving everything from real estate to oil, and offshore bank notes.  For instance, we recovered $43.5 million for investors in a nationwide securities fraud class action, including $13.5 million from defendant's auditor, KMPG, which is one of the largest recoveries against an accounting firm in Oregon history.  Read more about our work on behalf of individual investors.

Institutional Investors
Stoll Berne has a long history of helping large institutional investors, such as state pension funds, college savings plans and private pension funds, recover losses due to securities fraud.  We represent institutional investors in class action litigation and individual "opt out" cases where the institution is better served fighting for its own interests.  Together with the Oregon Attorney General and Department of Justice, we represented the Oregon College Savings Plan in securing a settlement of over $20 million for college-bound children in a securities case against OppenheimerFunds.  Read more about our work on behalf of institutional investors.

Recognition and Awards
Our attorneys are recognized by both peers and clients, and consistently rank in Chambers USA, Best Lawyers and Oregon Super Lawyers lists.

"The court worked specifically with counsel, of whom I have the highest respect for each and everyone."  "These people have produced a remarkable result for the shareholders.  They have done so at an enormous saving of court time, one of the earliest recoveries bringing to closure unliquidated claims."
-US District Court Judge Robert E. Jones
