Ross Shikowitz focuses his practice on investigating, analyzing and prosecuting complex securities matters on behalf of institutional investors.

For nearly a decade, Ross has been advising many of the world’s largest and most sophisticated institutional investors concerning their rights and potential legal claims arising out of securities-related matters.  He is a senior member of the firm’s Client Monitoring and Case Evaluation Group in which he, together with a team of attorneys and financial analysts, develops and recommends legal strategies to the firm’s clients.  Ross is also one of the lead attorneys litigating the securities class action against Granite Construction Incorporated, which the court recently sustained over defendants’ motion to dismiss.  For his dedication to investors, Ross has consistently been named by Super Lawyers as a New York “Rising Star” in the area of securities litigation.

Prior to joining the firm, Ross was an attorney at Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP where he was a senior member of its New Matter Department.  Ross was also an instrumental member of the litigation teams responsible for recovering hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of injured investors that were misled when purchasing residential mortgage-backed securities.  In addition, Ross served as a member of the litigation team that prosecuted the securities fraud class action against Volkswagen arising from the company’s diesel-emissions scandal, which resulted in a recovery of $48 million for investors in Volkswagen American Depositary Receipts.  In addition, Ross served as a member of the team that successfully litigated the securities class action concerning GT Advanced Technologies and recovered approximately $40 million for investors.

While in law school, Ross was a research assistant to Brooklyn Law School Professor of Law Emeritus Norman Poser, a widely respected expert in international and domestic securities regulation.  He also served as a judicial intern to the Honorable Brian M. Cogan of the Eastern District of New York, a legal intern for the Major Narcotics Investigations Bureau of the Kings Country District Attorney’s Office, and a summer associate at a prominent defense firm.
