Nick Morgan practices complex securities litigation in state and federal courts with special emphasis in representing issuers, officers and directors, investment funds, analysts and brokers in connection with Securities and Exchange Commission and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority investigations, litigation and arbitration.

Nick also advises clients in non-litigation settings, such as counseling public companies, funds and broker-dealer firms in securities compliance and corporate governance issues, conducting internal investigations and assisting in regulatory examinations by the SEC's Division of Corporation Finance and Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations.

According to reports of a study conducted from 2006 to 2010 of former senior SEC officials who appeared against the SEC on behalf of clients, "Nicolas Morgan of DLA Piper [is] one of the busiest." Indeed, since leaving the SEC, Nick is one of the few attorneys who has prevailed at trial against an insider trading claim brought by the SEC.
