Law Firm News


Lerach Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins LLP (“Lerach Coughlin”) announced today that John J. Rice, a 15-year veteran of the United States Attorney’s Office, has joined the firm’s securities-fraud task force. Mr. Rice joins Lerach Coughlin after spending almost two decades prosecuting a wide array of complex white-collar criminal cases. Most recently, he worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of California, specializing in public corruption cases. He has also served stints prosecuting organized crime for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York and was nominated to serve as Branch Chief in the Northern Mariana Islands, prosecuting public corruption and white-collar criminal cases.

Mr. Rice has been praised for his diligent efforts to combat graft, corruption and collusion among public and private officials in San Diego. In 2005, he was a member of the trial team that obtained guilty verdicts against the acting San Diego Mayor and a well-known councilman on federal corruption charges. Mr. Rice is also currently an adjunct professor at the University of San Diego Law School, most recently teaching a course in Federal Crimes.

“I am honored to be able to work again with some of my former colleagues at the United States Attorney’s Office and to practice at the most successful securities class-action law firm in the country. Lerach Coughlin offers a veteran trial lawyer like me an environment rich in legal talent and the resources and opportunity to make a difference for those shareholders who need it. I look forward to working with the firm’s many talented lawyers, including former federal Judge Lawrence Irving, whom I know well and before whom I have appeared,” Mr. Rice said.

“We are indeed fortunate to have someone of John Rice’s background and experience join our firm. Our large corporate corruption cases are made-to-order for him,” said Mike Dowd, a member of the firm’s management committee.

Mr. Rice graduated cum laude from Harvard University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History, and he received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Virginia. Mr. Rice served as a judicial law clerk to the late U.S. District Court Judge Judith N. Keep.

Lerach Coughlin has more than 175 lawyers in San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Boca Raton, Washington, DC, Houston, Philadelphia and Seattle (www.lerachlaw.com). Lerach Coughlin is actively engaged in complex litigation, emphasizing securities, consumer, insurance, healthcare, human rights, employment discrimination and antitrust class actions. As a result, Lerach Coughlin attorneys have been responsible for recoveries of more than $45 billion, including the $7.1 billion of recoveries to date in the Enron class action, the largest securities class action recovery in history.
