With a broad base of experience in complex litigation—including securities fraud, corporate governance, whistleblower cases under Dodd-Frank and the False Claims Act and catastrophic injury cases—Josh Littlejohn plays a key role on the Motley Rice securities litigation team, particularly cases involving healthcare.

Josh represents public pension funds, unions and institutional investors in both federal and state courts. He also represents people with catastrophic injuries, victims of medical malpractice and corporate whistleblowers. Josh works directly with clients and has been involved in all aspects of the litigation process, including case evaluation, fact and expert discovery, resolution and trial.

Among other complex securities matters, Josh has been involved in litigation against Wells Fargo; 3D Systems Corporation; St. Jude Medical, Inc.; Pharmacia Corporation and NPS Pharmaceuticals. Josh has also been involved in the groundbreaking securities fraud litigation against NASDAQ and the New York Stock Exchange, among other defendants, related to high frequency trading or “HFT.” Along with other Motley Rice lawyers, Josh is currently South Carolina liaison counsel in a securities fraud class action on behalf of investors against SCANA Corporation related to its failed nuclear reactor project.  

Josh is currently a leading member of the team litigating on behalf of former corporate insiders at Greer Laboratories, Inc. who allege that Greer violated the False Claims Act by causing health care providers to seek reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid for unlicensed biologic drugs.

Aside from various securities and whistleblower matters, Josh was recently part of the Motley Rice negotiating team that helped secure a resolution with a major U.S. auto manufacturer on behalf of Takata airbag victims. Early in his career at Motley Rice, Josh worked on discovery in mass tort litigation against drug manufacturers, including Merck & Co., Inc., related to the drug Vioxx.
