    Attorney Hamilton Lindley Named Among Best Lawyers by D Magazine

    The Dallas trial law firm Deans & Lyons is pleased to announce that Hamilton Lindley has earned a spot on D Magazine's listing of "The Best Lawyers in Dallas." Mr. Lindley was recognized among Dallas' top lawyers for his work in securities litigation and enforcement.

    To compile the list of the city's top attorneys, D Magazine solicited nominations from 9,000 lawyers and judges throughout North Texas. Fellow attorneys vote for nominee's that demonstrate high standards in terms of quality of work and integrity in the legal profession. The publication's editors then worked with a blue-ribbon panel of lawyers to finalize the listing, which is featured in the May 2014 edition of D Magazine, and will be available throughout the year at

    Hamilton Lindley is routinely recognized among the top lawyers in Texas. He has been featured in the Texas Super Lawyers listing of the state's top lawyers since 2010.

    "Representing both plaintiffs and defendants in securities litigation helps me provide unique insight to my clients," Hamilton Lindley said. "I am honored to be selected by my peers for this listing in D Magazine."

    ‘SALACIOUS PART OF LAW’

    Lately, huge payouts to the federal government have become more common. In the last two years, companies have paid FCPA fines and disgorgements worth more than $2.6 billion, nearly triple the value of settlements in the prior four years, according to data compiled by law firm Shearman & Sterling. In shareholder cases that come on the heels of a big FCPA settlement, juries are more inclined to be sympathetic to the plaintiffs, lawyers say. Concern about large potential verdicts can trigger big settlements.

    “Bribery is a salacious part of law. It’s something that people can understand — and it gets them angry,” said Hamilton Lindley, an associate at six-lawyer Goldfarb Branham in Dallas, one of about two dozen firms that have filed FCPA-related lawsuits in the last year.

    Plaintiffs’ lawyers are also drawn to these cases because companies under federal bribery scrutiny typically have already endured bad press and spent millions on outside counsel and globe-trotting forensic accountants. Avon Products, for example, spent $48 million in the first six months of this year on an internal investigation sparked by an employee’s claim that company personnel made improper payments to Chinese officials. After the company disclosed the allegations to the Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission, which opened investigations, three shareholder suits were filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. An Avon spokeswoman declined to comment on the investigations or the private litigation.

    In Huron scandal, shadows of Arthur Andersen

    Attorney Hamilton Lindley of the Kendall Law Group, a Dallas-based law firm, said he expected a class-action complaint to be filed on behalf of shareholders this week.

    “It’s natural to look into whether the culture of Arthur Andersen bled over into the culture of Huron Consulting,” Lindley said. “That’s a question we will pursue in our investigation.”

    The unintended consequences of the Justice Department’s FCPA policy simply continue to mount. The intense criminalization by U.S. government lawyers of behavior that should never be condoned, but is globally systematic, has produced many outcomes. Meet one of them: Hamilton Lindley, a professional securities class-action lawyer. In the last few months he has followed corporate disclosures of FCPA investigations by suing the boards of directors of Weatherford International, Parker Drilling, Avon Products and Pride International. Lindley is now spending a quarter of his time on the FCPA and is quite honest in saying he is just following the lead of the Department of Justice and the Securities & Exchange Commission.

    “I think the fact that these companies have been committing graft overseas frankly is an interesting topic for juries to hear,” Lindley told me. “It’s the new enforcement regime of the DOJ and SEC so private practice lawyers are interested in what government lawyers are doing.”

    In the lawsuit Lindley filed against Weatherford and its board, for example, Lindley has figured out by taking a few minutes to read an SEC filing that the “Weatherford Board has incurred an astonishing $108 million in costs and expenses in connection with FCPA-related investigations,” which doesn’t include the “pecuniary penalty that Weatherford is likely to have to pay to resolve the DOJ and SEC investigations.” So the general idea is for Lindley and his firm, Goldfarb Branham, to also make some money off of Weatherford’s conduct.
