A Global Leader in Class Action Protection


Global, international, far-reaching... SRKW is the only plaintiffs-oriented law firm with a truly global reach. Its U.S. offices in Philadelphia and Washington, and its twenty-two affiliated offices around the world, give the Firm a presence on six continents. This enables us to protect our clients’ interests in the most effective forum — whether that is the U.S., Europe, or elsewhere.

SRKW has been working on behalf of clients domiciled outside the U.S. for years, in some of the biggest and highest profile cases. For example, we represent a large Belgian institutional investor that helped lead the first pan-European settlement of a securities fraud action — Royal Dutch Shell. We represent a Greek institution that acted as a lead plaintiff in the Converium/Scor action, where we negotiated a $145 million recovery on behalf of a global class of investors. In an unprecedented move, the case was settled on two continents, in the Southern District of New York and the Amsterdam Court of Appeals. This was the first such trans-Atlantic resolution to a securities class action. SRKW also represents institutional investors from France, Belgium and Italy who led the Parmalat class action in the U.S. The Firm represented a Belgian/Dutch asset manager in the Chicago Bridge action and currently represents a UK-based public pension fund in the securities fraud action against Lehman Brothers.

In addition to representing non-U.S. clients in U.S.-based actions, SRKW is currently working with European investors on asset recovery and corporate governance actions in Europe with respect to EADS and UBS.

The Firm’s portfolio monitoring services are provided to both U.S. and non-U.S. investors. Our Umbrella Monitoring PlatformSM was designed exclusively for clients outside the U.S. This proprietary monitoring is uniquely provided by SRKW and enables us to give our non-U.S. clients a bespoke service directed to their particular needs and objectives. We would be pleased to provide additional details upon request. To learn more, please contact us.
