Mr. Silk's practice focuses on representing public pension funds and other institutional investors on matters involving federal and state securities laws, accountants' liability and the fiduciary duties of corporate officials. He is one of the partners at the firm responsible for advising institutional shareholder clients on legal matters arising out of the subprime mortgage crises and the recent options backdating scandal. Mr. Silk also oversees the firm's new matter department, in which he, along with a group of financial analysts and investigators, counsels clients on potential legal claims.
