Long record of courtroom success for financial institutions. We represent financial institutions in a wide variety of complex disputes and investigations. Recently we won trials for a private equity fund alleged to have breached a fiduciary duty in connection with a Shari’ah compliant transaction, and a bank and broker-dealer alleged to have aided and abetted a fraud. We also won summary judgment on behalf of a private equity company alleged to have committed fraud, and achieved a favorable settlement on behalf of another private equity company alleged to have committed fraud in connection with a major asset sale. We excel at reducing the complex to something more easily understood by a judge, jury, arbitration panel or mediator to achieve victory. The types of matters we handle for financial institutions include:
- securities fraud and shareholder derivative litigation
- False Claims Act litigation
- government investigations and white collar defense
- banking practices and antitrust litigation
- contract and tort litigation, including aiding and abetting claims
- insurance coverage litigation
- fiduciary litigation
- real estate lending litigation and dispute counseling
- hedge fund and private equity litigation
- tax controversy litigation
