Stephen J. Oddo’s litigation efforts on behalf of individual and institutional shareholders in corporate merger and acquisition class actions have helped preserve the integrity of the merger process in companies across the country. For over a decade, Mr. Oddo has maximized shareholder value by securing tens of millions of dollars of additional consideration for shareholders whose investments have been adversely impacted by corporate transactions and obtaining disclosures of material information for shareholders. Mr. Oddo also represents shareholders in securities fraud class actions and in cases seeking to recover excessive fees charged by mutual fund advisors.
Prior to joining Robbins LLP, Mr. Oddo was a partner at the firm now known as Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP, where he was part of a team at the forefront of litigating shareholder claims challenging unfair business combinations. Before entering the legal profession, Mr. Oddo served as Press Secretary to U.S. Representative Robert T. Matsui (D-Cal).
Founded in 2002, Robbins LLP is a nationally recognized leader in securities litigation and shareholder rights law. Robbins LLP also represents individuals and businesses injured by anticompetitive conduct in violation of antitrust laws, consumers damaged by unfair business practices, employees damaged when their retirement funds have lost value due to improper management and/or fraud, and whistleblowers who expose wrongdoing within their companies.
Robbins LLP offers a free portfolio monitoring service for shareholders, institutional investors, and financial advisors called Stock Watch.
