Financial services litigation

Within: Financial services litigation

The 'impressive' team at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP remains at the forefront of the financial services litigation Bar and continues to be 'very active' across the most significant private litigation and enforcement actions affecting many of the country's most prominent financial services entities. Brad Karp is the trusted adviser of many high-profile banks in their most sensitive disputes; he represents Citigroup in numerous matters, including its defense of a raft of RMBS-related lawsuits and its ongoing defense as a party to alleged collusion in the interest rate swaps market. Karp also achieved a notable victory for Citigroup when he secured the voluntary dismissal of a shareholder derivative lawsuit alleging that the bank's officers and directors breached their fiduciary duties of oversight by failing to increase compliance with AML statutes and other federal laws. Formerly deputy general counsel at Citigroup, Susanna Buergel has very close ties to the bank and has been a key adviser to it in many of its financial crisis-related litigation and regulatory enforcement actions. The team also continues to guide Deutsche Bank through numerous benchmark manipulation investigations and class actions, including recently negotiating resolutions in five major class actions relating to, inter alia, US dollar Libor-referencing over-the-counter (OTC) instruments and Eurodollar futures. Praised for his 'ethical and intellectual integrity and credibility before the regulators and opposing counsel', Daniel Kramer is 'very effective' on behalf of clients engaged in securities litigation and related financial services disputes/enforcement actions. Other recommended practitioners include Richard Rosen and Bruce Birenboim. All named attorneys are based in New York.
