 Reid Collins & Tsai is a trial firm that prosecutes a wide range of complex commercial litigation, including financial fraud matters, Ponzi scheme-related cases, cross-border disputes, and professional liability matters.

We have the flexibility to bring cases that other law firms are typically conflicted out of — for example, cases against auditors, lawyers, banks, insurers, and Fortune 100 companies. Because we are not beholden to large institutional clients, we are able to prosecute high-stakes cases against well-heeled targets who frequently believe they are insulated from liability. For instance, in 2015, we achieved, on behalf of our client, a $287.5 million judgment against Credit Suisse in a fraud and breach-of-contract case. In addition, we have successfully settled numerous claims against law firms and auditors in cases alleging that these professionals assisted in or failed to prevent a financial fraud.

We also have the expertise and know how to investigate, analyze, and develop cutting-edge claims that others might not see or would turn down without a second thought. Notably, in 2016, we won a landmark decision from the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals concerning the scope of § 546(e) of the Bankruptcy Code.

We work hand in hand with clients to create fair and common sense fee arrangements tailored to the particular facts and circumstances of each case. These fee arrangements may involve contingency fees, discounted hourly fees, flat fees, or a combination of some or all of these options.
