Areas of Practice

STOLL BERNE represents U.S. and international companies and consumers in all aspects of antitrust litigation.  This representation includes allegations of price-fixing, customer allocation, market division, price discrimination, and tying or bundling related products and unfair or deceptive trade practices.

Stoll Berne has a strong team of appellate attorneys who provide expert advice to clients on appellate matters. The firm's attorneys have appeared before, and established law in, the United States Supreme Court, several federal circuit courts of appeal and the Oregon appellate courts.  We have successfully preserved major jury verdicts and overturned erroneous trial court rulings. A number of attorneys have clerked on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Oregon Supreme Court and Oregon Court of Appeals.

Litigation, although sometimes necessary, is not always in the best interest of your business or career.  Accordingly, we resolve many business and employment disputes without going to trial and frequently without even filing a lawsuit.

We act as general and special counsel to businesses engaged in a wide variety of industries, including finance, securities, technology, agriculture and health care. Our clients include individuals, investors and businesses of all kinds, from publicly held corporations to closely held businesses.

We have earned a solid reputation as the leading plaintiffs' class action firm in Oregon. We have litigated numerous securities fraud class actions on behalf of investors.

We represent parties in trade secret, trademark, copyright, false advertising, unfair competition, defamation, medical research practice and related intellectual property matters.

We represent real estate developers, investors and financial institutions in a wide variety of real estate transactions and other matters.

We represent a number of select national, regional and local securities broker-dealers and brokers in disputes with customers, with other broker-dealers, and before regulators.

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. 

STOLL BERNE represents whistleblowers in matters involving healthcare fraud, defense contracting fraud, IRS fraud, securities fraud, and commodities fraud.

Generally speaking, whistleblowers receive between 10-30 percent of the amount recovered by the Government in a successful action.
