Adam prosecutes securities fraud, corporate governance, and shareholder rights litigation on behalf of the firm’s clients in federal and state trial and appellate courts.
Adam has represented investors and corporations in state and federal trial and appellate courts throughout the country. Adam was a senior member of the team that recovered $74 million for investors in In re SunEdison, Inc. Securities Litigation, which concerned what had been the world’s largest renewable energy company. Adam also played a key role in recovering $48 million for investors in the American Depository Receipts (ADRs) of Volkswagen, relating to the automaker’s alleged misrepresentations concerning its “clean diesel” cars, which claims involved significant international discovery, foreign jurisdictional issues and overlapping litigation in Europe. Adam’s work was integral to the successful appeal before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in Bach v. Amedisys, Inc., as well as the litigation on remand that resulted in a $43.75 million recovery in that case.
In addition, Adam has been an integral member of the teams that prosecuted, among other matters, cases concerning Salix Pharmaceuticals (recovering $210 million for investors); Cliffs Natural Resources ($84 million); Dole Food Company ($74 million); Opko Health ($16.5 million); Kinder Morgan Energy Partners ($27.5 million); Sanchez Energy ($28.5 million and governance reforms following successful appeal); Trinity Industries ($7.5 million) and Abercrombie & Fitch (significant corporate governance reforms in areas of ethics, internal controls, and executive compensation).
Currently, Adam is a senior member of the teams prosecuting cases against Boeing, arising out of the fatal crashes of the company’s 737 MAX aircraft, as well as cases on behalf of investors in Novo Nordisk, Six Flags, Baxter International, and CVS.
