Fairfield Sentry Litigation

We are defending a major French financial institution in a clawback case spawned by the Bernard Madoff debacle. The case seeks to recover payments received for shares redeemed before the exposure of the Ponzi scheme, and is one of over 200 similar cases that have been consolidated for pre-trial purposes in the New York Bankruptcy Court. The cases are still in their early stages.

Tribune Leveraged Buyout Litigation

We are representing a former shareholder of the Tribune Company whose shares were bought out during the 2007 leveraged buyout. There are over 40 similar cases, now consolidated in New York, in which creditors of the Tribune Company seek to reverse the buyout and recover the amounts paid for the shares.

We were counsel to the financial institution plaintiff in an action against the arranger and rating agency for two structured investment vehicles which failed during the financial crisis of 2007-08.

International Estate Litigation

We are counsel to a large multinational estate, in which claims in litigation involve issues arising under French, Swiss, Maryland, District of Columbia, New York and federal laws. There is an interplay of conflicting tax, trust and estate law question. We assembled the U.S. legal team and are handling the New York aspects of the case.
