The investigation focuses on recovering the enormous damage caused by possible breaches of fiduciary duty and violations of federal securities laws by the Volkswagen Board of Directors in connection with the worldwide emission scandal. As a result, the Company pled guilty to criminal charges, paid a $2.8 billion criminal fine, a $2.7 billion fine for environmental mitigation, another $2 billion for clean-emissions infrastructure, while total costs associated to rectifying the emissions issue have exceeded $18.32 billion. In addition, the Company is still facing criminal investigations and lawsuits in numerous countries.

We have recovered over a billion dollars for defrauded clients and obtained important corporate governance relief in many of these cases.
