Shareholder Rights
When insiders lie to the market and when boardrooms turn a blind eye, Hedin Hall fights back for investors. Our shareholder rights practice runs the gamut, from historic securities fraud class actions to pioneering recoveries in the wake of botched IPOs to the still emerging threat of crypto-currency fraud. We stay ahead of the curve by eschewing the assembly line approach of other firms. Fresh eyes and an open mind give us an edge, and it pays off for the individual and institutional investors we represent. Over he past 5 years alone, our attorneys have recovered over $500 million for aggrieved investors.

Cybersecurity & Data Privacy
Everyday, tech giants find new ways to exploit smartphones and the internet to invade, catalog, and capitalize on your private life. They track where you are, what you do, who you’re with. Then they sell it – to advertisers, law enforcement, anyone willing to pay. In this era of online exploitation, Hedin Hall takes a stand for your most basic rights to privacy, candor, and control. You are not a number. Your private life is yours alone.

To protect your privacy rights, we grapple with cutting-edge technology and the legal issues of first impression that come with it. We get results by cutting through the hype and jargon to uncover the real interests in play and where they align. Even our opponents come to respect our perspective and knack for crafting creative resolutions.

Abusive Telemarketing

Hedin Hall LLP stands with consumers against the epidemic of abusive telemarketing. Our deep understanding of both the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and the technology underlying these abusive robo-dialing practices sets us apart from other firms practicing in this space. Combining refined case theories with relentless advocacy, we’ve recovered tens of millions of dollars for consumers bombarded with text spam, robocalls, and other abusive telemarketing practices. In the retail text message context in particular, our attorneys have achieved some of the largest settlements ever recorded.

North Bay Fires

The North Bay Fires devastated homes, families, whole communities. As state regulators investigate Pacific Gas & Electric’s responsibility – downed power lines and derelict maintenance the likely cause – Hedin Hall is helping people rebuild their lives. We are working with court-appointed lead counsel to hold PG&E accountable for this catastrophic loss of life and property. If you have been affected by the North Bay Fires – including the Tubbs, Atlas, Nuns, Oakmont, Adobe, Norrbom, Partrick, Redwood, Pressly, Sulphur, and Pocket fires – contact Hedin Hall for a free consultation.
