Julie concentrates her practice in complex commercial litigation with a particular focus on litigation involving financial products and services. Her clients include financial services companies, broker-dealers, insurance companies, publicly traded corporations and private companies. She also represents clients in a variety of commercial disputes at the trial and appellate levels, including contractual disputes, fraud, shareholder derivative claims and breach of fiduciary duty, and ERISA litigation. Her experience includes state and federal court litigation, FINRA arbitrations and regulatory investigations involving the SEC, FINRA and state agencies.
