Shareholder derivative suits and breach of fiduciary duty claims are brought by a shareholder on behalf of a corporation against a third party, such as an executive officer or director. These suits are unique because under traditional corporate law, management is responsible for bringing and defending the corporation against suit. Shareholder derivative suits permit a shareholder to initiate a suit when management has failed to do so.

Securities fraud class actions are an integral part of the Trinko firm’s practice. Securities fraud often occurs when a publicly traded company disseminates materially false or misleading statements to the public about the Company’s financial condition or its products, which financial statements served to artificially inflate the price of the Company’s stock. Typically, when the fraud is detected and the truth about the Company's financial condition or product is publicly revealed, investors who purchased the Company's securities at a time when the prices of those securities were artificially inflated experience a significant drop in the value of their stock, causing investors serious economic losses.
The Trinko firm has vigorously prosecuted actions involving securities fraud on behalf of misled shareholders and investors for over 35 years.
While in some cases the losses incurred by any single investor may be relatively small, the losses suffered by all investors can be extremely large. Due to the time and cost that goes into the litigation of a securities action, it may be very expensive to litigate a securities action on behalf of one investor, however, bringing an action on behalf of all injured investors, usually in the form of a class action, justifies the cost.
