Arbitration has long been a significant part of Susman Godfrey’s litigation practice. Our expertise as stand-up trial lawyers readily translates to success representing clients in arbitration proceedings in a wide variety of disputes. We have had particular success with international and executive compensation arbitrations.
For plaintiffs, we have prevailed for executives wrongfully terminated by their employers; entertainment companies in disputes over copyright royalties; investors in FINRA arbitrations involving claims of breach of fiduciary duty, negligent misrepresentation, and fraud; and hedge funds that had gone into receivership against a prominent brokerage firm. For defendants, we have successfully represented homebuilders against claims of real estate fraud and deceptive trade practices, and insurers in coverage disputes relating to settlements of product liability litigation, among others.
