An Interview with Peter Stone
How did you choose to practice in securities litigation? Is there anything that or anyone who drew you into this area? I always wanted to be a trial attorney, and I long had an interest in securities litigation. That interest blossomed in law school in a securities class taught by Larry Sonsini. He was an excellent teacher and made securities litigation sound very cutting-edge, which it is. As an associate, I was proactive in letting senior lawyers know that I wanted to work on securities cases. Since becoming a partner, I have been fortunate to work with a number of my terrific partners at Paul Hastings. I still learn a lot from them.
