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.
