For several years, Nixon Peabody's Rochester lawyers have been successfully defending shareholder derivative suits against Xerox Corporation and its officers and directors in New York and Connecticut state and federal courts. The cases challenge executive compensation in the face of restated financials.

Recently the firm won a dismissal in Connecticut state court based on lack of standing. Last week the firm won a dismissal in U.S. District Court in Connecticut, again on jurisdictional grounds.

A number of Nixon attorney have participated in this team effort over the last several years, led by Carolyn Nussbaum and Rick McGuirk, with assistance from John Field, John Larimer, Noah Doolittle, Lynnette Nogueras-Trummer and Marisa Miller.
