John P. Stigi III has joined Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton as a partner based in Los Angeles, the firm said in a release, moving from the Silicon Valley firm of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.

Stigi’s background is in securities class action, shareholder derivative action defense, SEC investigation defense, internal corporate investigations,  M&A and corporate governance litigation.

“We are delighted to have John join us,’’ Sheppard Mullin managing partner Guy Halgren said in a statement. “He brings a wealth of securities litigation experience, which benefits the firm and our clients. John is a terrific fit with the firm’s securities litigation and public company practices.”

Prior to his time with Wilson Sonsini, Stigi spent 12 years in practice in New York, where he remains a member of the bar.

Stigi graduated with honors from Columbia University in 1984 and received his law degree from the University of Viriginia in 1987.

“Sheppard Mullin is a phenomenal firm which offers an excellent platform for a securities litigation practice. I’m excited to join my new colleagues in this practice area and look forward to expanding the group while working with a wide variety of financial institutions and corporate clients,’’ Stigi said in a release.
