Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP's team, which is led from New York by Herbert Washer, assists broad variety of corporations and individuals with government investigations and enforcement matters. In Washington DC, Bradley Bondi represented Tesla in the SEC enforcement action following on from statements its CEO, Elon Musk, made on Twitter about taking the company private. Together with Bondi, New York's Nola Heller is representing Thomas Whittle, who was indicted in the Southern District of New York on fraud charges and in parallel civil charges lodged by the SEC. In another matter, New York's Brockton Bosson assisted the American Ballet Theater with an internal investigation into misconduct by its former principal dancer. Anirudh Bansal and David Wishengrad in New York are also notable practitioners.

Securities litigation - defense

Within: Securities litigation - defense

Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP has a strong standing among investment banks, asset managers and hedge funds, though it also represents many blue-chip corporates in  securities litigation. The firm is lead defense counsel for major investment banks including Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank in high-profile cases. Charles Gilman and David Januszewski acted for Deutsche Bank in a securities fraud class action, in which plaintiffs allege that statements concerning the Bank’s AML procedures and control environment were materially false and misleading. Star partner Herbert Washer represented Credit Suisse in civil litigation arising from alleged manipulation of Libor, in which the firm was praised for 'pursuing some unique theories and clearing many cases with novel thinking'. 'Client service is what counts and the firm responds to clients' needs', says one source. Also recommended are David Wishengrad, up-and-coming partners Sheila Ramesh and Jason Hall, and Washington DC-based regulatory enforcement specialist Bradley Bondi. Unless otherwise stated, lawyers are based in New York.
