Biography

Former federal and state prosecutor Lee D. Rudy brings a wealth of trial experience to representing clients in merger & acquisition, shareholder derivative, and corporate governance cases. Working on behalf of both institutional and individual shareholders, Lee has obtained significant monetary recoveries and helped bring about corporate governance improvements for numerous companies and shareholders.

As co-lead trial counsel in the landmark Southern Peru litigation, Lee won a $2 billion trial verdict against Southern Peru’s majority shareholder in connection with the shareholder’s sale of assets to the company at an inflated price. He has served as lead counsel in dozens of high-profile derivative actions relating to the “backdating” of stock options.

Lee also co-chairs the Firm’s qui tam and whistleblower practices, where he represents clients in actions under the federal and state false claims act statutes, and through the SEC, CFTC and IRS whistleblower programs. Prior to civil practice, Lee served for nearly a decade as a state and federal prosecutor in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and the US Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey, where he prosecuted dozens of jury trials through verdict.
