Slarskey LLC announced today that the New York-based litigation boutique has welcomed Adam Hollander, a commercial litigator with an extensive history of wins for investors in high-profile securities-related disputes and matters involving corporate fraud, as a partner.

“Adam’s impeccable credentials and record of victories speak for themselves – his successes representing investors in a variety of fraud-related matters are impressive by every standard,” said David Slarskey, founding partner of Slarskey LLC. “More importantly, he is clearly an individual of tremendous integrity. His experience and commitment to advocating for those who have suffered commercial wrongs fit perfectly within the values of our firm. Our growing team of litigators will benefit from his character and ability.”

Mr. Hollander brings more than 15 years of experience to Slarskey LLC, where he will specialize in representing businesses and sophisticated investors in complex commercial matters, including high-stakes, high-profile securities actions, including opt-out cases and direct actions, in addition to shareholder disputes, derivative actions, corporate governance cases, and breach of fiduciary duty disputes. A graduate of Yale Law School and former clerk at both the district and appellate levels of the federal judicial system, Mr. Hollander has established a broad-based commercial litigation practice including many closely watched shareholder actions and securities fraud cases.

In his career, Mr. Hollander has served as a senior member of teams that recovered over $700 million for investors. He has played a key role in high-stakes matters including, among others, cases alleging securities claims arising from the catastrophic crashes of Boeing’s 737 MAX aircraft; the collapse of the multi-billion-dollar hedge fund Archegos Capital Management; the “Facebook Files” that disclosed extensive wrongdoing and misrepresentations at social media company Meta and its platforms; Volkswagen’s “Dieselgate” emissions cheating scandal; and the collapse of SunEdison, formerly the world’s largest renewable energy company. He was also integral to two successful appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, one involving claims against home healthcare company Amedisys and the other concerning theme park operator Six Flags, which substantially clarified and strengthened the standards for pleading securities fraud claims.

“I am thrilled to join the talented attorneys at Slarskey, and to continue the critical work of pursuing the best outcomes for my clients,” said Mr. Hollander. “The firm litigates at an extremely high—and extremely smart—level. I am joining a team that, like me, will not be satisfied unless and until our clients are satisfied, and is committed to working thoughtfully and creatively to make that happen.”

Mr. Hollander started his legal career as an associate at Boies Schiller Flexner LLP, and most recently was a partner at Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP. He served as editor of the Yale Law & Policy Review while at Yale Law School, and graduated magna cum laude with an A.B. in Urban Studies from Brown University. He served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Barrington D. Parker, Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and for the Honorable Stefan R. Underhill of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut.
