Trial Attorneys Securities & Business Disputes
Reif Law Group, P.C. (RLG) is comprised of highly skilled attorneys who focus on providing superior client service. Drawing on our experience as seasoned trial and arbitration attorneys, RLG’s attorneys meticulously evaluate the essential facts and the applicable law and develop a trial plan based on careful consideration of our clients’ goals and potential outcomes of the dispute. This approach has earned RLG the trust of its loyal clients, and RLG reciprocates by developing a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses to better service them. We believe in forming strong relationships with a smaller number of clients and continuing to provide positive results.
Through our experience working within litigation budgets and sometimes with our clients’ insurers, we avoid unnecessary discovery disputes and motion practice in favor of pursuing cost-effective outcomes for our clients. While RLG prides itself on its trial-readiness and trial skills, sometimes the best outcomes occur before trial and derive from sharp and persuasive writing and oral advocacy as well as strategic settlement negotiations.
RLG represents the securities and financial services industries in all types disputes, litigation and regulatory matters. Our experience includes individual and grouped customer disputes, shareholder and partnership actions, class actions, stock and stock option disputes, ERISA litigation and complex insurance and estate planning disputes. We also represent our clients in government and self-regulatory investigations and enforcement actions, including parallel proceedings where customer disputes and government or regulator actions simultaneously exist. We also aggressively prosecute plaintiff cases for our clients, including disputes with vendors, issuers and sponsors, insurers, competitors, customers, ex-employees and agents, among others.
Business Disruption and Employment
RLG’s employment law practice focuses on business disruption disputes, trade secrets, computer fraud, employee mobility and restraining orders involving confidentiality, non-compete and non-solicit clauses as well as privacy policies and stolen computer data. RLG prides itself on being the firm of choice when our clients need to quickly mobilize a prosecution or a defense of high-stakes, fast-paced disputes involving cease and desist demands, restraining orders and preliminary injunctions.
We have obtained immediate results ranging the prompt return of stolen trade secrets, forcing competitors to cancel client seminars and webinars and forcing competitors to cease and desist from disruptive client and employee solicitations. We have also obtained emergency relief such as restraining orders, injunctions and writs of attachment in a variety of cases.

We represent accountants and auditors, attorneys and law firms, architects and engineers, estate planners, financial professionals, insurance professionals (agents, agencies and issuers) and real estate professionals (auctioneers, agents, brokers, financiers, lenders and escrow officers) in professional negligence, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and fraud lawsuits.
