Opening Kranenburg, my own law practice

It is with great pleasure and pride that I am announcing the opening of my own law practice, Kranenburg.

While in law school in London I came across the US area of law of securities fraud class action litigation, but the subject wasn’t taught in class here. I read about a case settlement in the press, it must’ve been 2004. I was fascinated. Since then I’ve been following the cases and legal developments and gotten to know the players. That led to a summer associateship in 2005 and, since 2006 as long-suffering readers are aware, the writing about securities litigation in the form of this weblog, on Twitter and in publications such as the Financial Times and Legal Week.

On 21 January 2010 I took the oath to become a fully qualified attorney and counselor-at-law licenced and admitted to practice law in all courts of the US State of New York. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise to learn that my practice will focus on representing private and institutional investors in securities class actions, derivative suits and deal litigation. Notably though, like this weblog, from a European’s point of view. The emphasis is on representing European clients in US proceedings from my office in the City, London’s financial district, working with other firms as co-counsel where appropriate.

In addition, I serve as liaison counsel to firms and attorneys in handling the European side of discovery in cases and assisting in any matters that require being handled with locally by US-qualified counsel.

Please update the contact details you have for me and of course I welcome your queries. When in London, make sure you drop by.
