Mr. Thomas R. Valen represents an exceptional range of domestic and international clients in major complex dispute resolution and business counseling matters in the United States and abroad. Mr. Valen’s flexible, practical approach to dispute resolution enables him to represent his client’s needs in whatever forum a dispute may arise.
His experience, business judgment, and training help him serve the needs of corporations and individuals in both civil and criminal litigation, enabling him to efficiently handle his clients’ most significant matters involving either governmental or private claims, including commercial litigation, white collar criminal defense, internal investigations, and shareholder disputes.
A recent matter that illustrates Mr. Valen’s breadth of experience and his focus on finding practical, business-oriented solutions to his client’s problems is his ongoing representation of a multibillion-dollar hedge fund in defense of insider trading charges.
The New York-based fund was the subject of Department of Justice and Securities and Exchange Commission investigations in multiple jurisdictions in the United States, as well as in several countries in Asia. The matters in the United States have been resolved without any individuals facing criminal charges, and with civil resolutions that will enable the fund to resume operations in the future, with enhanced compliance programs to prevent future violations.
Mr. Valen continues to work with the client’s non-U.S. counsel to ensure a resolution of those matters that similarly enhances the client’s ability to continue to operate its business effectively and in compliance with all applicable laws.
