For 12 years he was an Adjunct Professor teaching litigation at Georgia State University College of Law and for 13 years his practice included serving as the Hearing Officer for the Georgia Public Service Commission.

Rogers & Hardin brings nearly four decades of experience working with major wire houses in litigation and arbitration representations, spanning virtually every significant component of the securities research, marketing and transaction process. From early insider trading, suitability and churning cases to more recent matters involving complex derivative transactions and auction rate securities, our depth of experience brings skill and efficiency to every engagement. Our decades of experience enable us to quickly grasp the nuances that frequently prove instrumental to a successful defense strategy. We are often tapped to serve as National counsel for large financial institutions, handling large numbers of related cases that may be pending in various courts or before a variety of arbitration panels across the country. By managing these cases in a consistent and coordinated manner, we help clients discretely avoid adverse collateral consequences. These representations have earned our team a reputation as a top-tier practioner.

Recently, we served among a handful of counsel selected as lead trial attorneys for thousands of arbitrations arising from billions of dollars in research-related claims. Other recent representation includes:

  • Large customer arbitration claims before FINRA and its predecessor entities;
  • Court cases involving challenges to or enforcement of arbitration agreements;
  • Bankruptcy proceedings arising in connection with securities accounts or claims;
  • Internal investigations in connection with large-scale sales practice issues or firm procedures;
  • Employment-related disputes and claims brought by former agents or employees of a firm;
  • Regulatory investigations and proceedings – including successful settlements and trials on the merits of regulatory complaints.
Rogers & Hardin is the Atlanta-based law firm with a national reputation for excellence. We’ve been helping clients solve challenging legal problems for nearly 40 years. Many clients comment that our approach is unique. Key differences are:

Direct access to leading attorneys. Most of our partners are recognized for excellence by one or more of the leading national ranking services. Other firms have ranked partners too. The Rogers & Hardin difference is that these nationally recognized partners are hands on working directly on client matters. Their skill brings efficiency and excellence to our work product. Efficiency translates into fewer hours expended and less supervision required for our clients. Clients notice and appreciate both.

Lower rates without sacrificing attorney caliber. Our service delivery model differs from many of our peers. We maintain a lean staff-to-attorney ratio in order to give clients direct access to our partners, who have rates that are often significantly lower than their peers. This approach adds tremendous value for our clients.

Maximizing client success. We measure success differently than other firms. We focus on client satisfaction, responsiveness and exceeding expectations. For clients who have experience working with legal teams that only think about them when the meter’s running it is a noticeable difference.

We maintain both transactional and litigation practices. Sustaining excellence across both disciplines within our footprint is challenging to say the least. Yet the benefits it delivers to clients are immense. Rogers & Hardin is the only firm in the Southeast recognized for excellence across such diversity in practice coverage outside of a Big Law platform. Clients appreciate having that choice.

We take cases to trial. Our firm is skilled at all phases of dispute resolution including trying cases in front of the federal, state and local bars. We are often the firm engaged by other law firms when they need trial counsel support. Clients find that having a firm with a successful reputation as a strong trial adversary gives them more flexibility in resolving disputes.

Global support at preferred rates. Rogers & Hardin is an active member of Interlaw, the international network of pre-vetted, annually reviewed, full service law firms with nearly 5,000 attorneys in more than 125 cities worldwide. This gives our clients direct access to a global of network of law firms on a preferred fee scale no matter where their business takes them.
