Jake Bissell-Linsk is a Partner in the New York office of Labaton Keller Sucharow LLP.  Jake focuses his practice on securities fraud class actions.

Jake has been recognized as a Rising Star by The National Law Journal "Elite Trial Lawyers” and New York Law Journal’s New York Legal Awards, as well as a Next Generation Lawyer by Lawdragon. The Best Lawyers in America® also listed him as one of the “Best Lawyers in America: Ones to Watch” in the Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions: Plaintiffs category.

Jake has litigated federal securities class actions in jurisdictions across the country at both the District Court and Appellate Court level.  He is currently litigating cases against Rocket Companies alleging that insiders misstated the risks of rising interest rates on the business and engaged in a $500 million insider sale ahead of disclosing declining performance; against Lucid Motors and Lordstown Motors involving de-SPAC mergers; against Intelsat insiders alleging they sold $246 million in stock shortly after learning the FTC would reject a bet-the-company deal; against Tesla, General Motors and Cruise alleging executives of those companies misrepresented the safety and capabilities of their autonomous driving technologies; against Boeing alleging the company misstated its safety practices; against Cronos for alleged accounting fraud related to cannabis sales; and against Playtika for allegedly omitting to disclose risks related to a planned major redesign of its two major products before its IPO.

In addition to these varied securities fraud cases, Jake is litigating a number of cases involving take-private mergers, including several cases involving Chinese-based and Cayman-incorporated firms that were delisted from U.S. exchanges.  For example, one such case alleges E-House’s executives withheld favorable projections and internal plans to relist the company in China after an undervalued buyout and another alleges members of Shanda’s management issued unjustifiable projections and hid tremendous results for the newest release in its marquee video game franchise before an undervalued buyout.

Jake has played a pivotal role in securing favorable settlements for investors in a variety of securities actions, including recent cases against Nielsen ($73 million settlement), in a case that involved allegations of inflated goodwill and the effect of the EU’s GDPR on the company; Mindbody ($9.75 million settlement), in a case alleging false guidance and inadequate disclosures prior to a private equity buyout; against Qihoo ($29.75 million settlement) and JA Solar ($21 million settlement), in cases alleging misrepresentations about projections and post-merger plans included in proxies prior to a management buyout.

Beyond securities cases, Jake is currently litigating a class action alleging that Flo Health improperly shared app users’ health data and that Meta, Google and Flurry improperly intercepted confidential user data.  Jake also regularly provides pro bono assistance to pro se parties through the Federal Pro Se Legal Assistance Project.

Jake was previously a Litigation Associate at Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, where he worked on complex commercial litigation including contract disputes, bankruptcies, derivative suits, and securities claims.  He also assisted defendants in government investigations and provided litigation advice on M&A transactions and during restructurings.

Jake earned his Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from the University of Pennsylvania Law School.  He served as Senior Editor of the University of Pennsylvania Law Review and Associate Editor of the East Asia Law Review.  While in law school, Jake interned for Judge Melvin L. Schweitzer at the New York Supreme Court (Commercial Division).  He received his bachelor’s degree, magna cum laude, from Hamline University.
