Law Firm News


Lerach Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins LLP (“Lerach Coughlin”) today announced that Hon. Lawrence Irving will become Special Counsel to the firm, effective May 1, 2006. Judge Irving, who previously served as U.S. District Court Judge for the Southern District of California, will advise the firm’s institutional investor clients regarding securities matters and act as Lerach Coughlin’s liaison with the Regents of the University of California – the lead plaintiff in the Enron securities class action.

“I am very pleased to become Special Counsel to a law firm that has lead the way in representing institutional investors in securities actions in the post-Enron era. I look forward to working with the firm’s institutional clients and the many talented securities lawyers at Lerach Coughlin,” said Judge Irving. “For several decades I served as a Judge and mediator in complex securities cases and look forward to continuing to advise pension funds about their options in large securities matters, including the Enron and AOL Time Warner cases.”

“We are very proud to have someone of Judge Irving’s experience and stature join the firm as Special Counsel,” said William S. Lerach. “Judge Irving will provide invaluable insight and assistance to our firm’s hundreds of public, international and private institutional investor clients.”

“Judge Irving has recently served as a consultant to The Regents of the University of California and the Office of the General Counsel in the University’s role as lead plaintiff in the Enron case where recoveries to date exceed $7 billion for the members of the plaintiff class,” said James E. Holst, General Counsel of The Regents. “Judge Irving has been of great assistance to us,” Holst continued, “and we are delighted his services and outstanding judgment will continue to be available for the benefit of all plaintiffs in the case, including the University.”

Judge Irving received a B.S. in Business Administration and his LLB from the University of Southern California. For many years, Judge Irving was a leading trial lawyer in San Diego. He was elected a Fellow in the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers and served as President of the San Diego Chapter of ABOTA. Judge Irving was appointed to the Federal Bench by President Regan in 1982. He presided over numerous high-profile criminal and civil trials, including a fivemonth jury trial in the Nucorp securities class action case.

Judge Irving resigned from the Federal Bench in 1990 because of his stance against Guideline and Minimum Mandatory Sentencing Laws. He received numerous awards for his judicial service, including awards from such diverse groups as the FBI and ACLU. Judge Irving has mediated many high-profile cases since 1991, including numerous complex class action securities cases. According to the Los Angeles Daily Journal, Judge Irving is one of the most sought after mediators/arbitrators in California.

Judge Irving’s public service includes serving as chair and a member of numerous Judicial Selection Committees, including as Chair of Gov. Pete Wilson’s San Diego Superior Courts Committee, and Chair of Senator Boxer’s Southern California Federal Judicial and U.S. Attorney Selection Committee, Chair of several San Diego U.S. Magistrate Judicial Selection Committees. He currently serves on President Bush’s Southern California Federal Judicial and U.S. Attorney Selection Committee. Judge Irving will continue to serve as mediator in certain cases and will continue his pro bono activities on behalf of significant causes.
