Partner Jim Swanson recently was selected to the 500 Leading Plaintiff Financial Lawyers list by Lawdragon. The 2024 guide, which was first published as a standalone list in 2019, features lawyers who “go to bat when their clients have been swindled, defrauded, shut out of markets, bamboozled, and just plain lied to.” Swanson is recognized for Securities and Environmental Litigation.
