Ralph Ferrara - Proskauer Rose LLP

Within: Securities litigation: defense

Proskauer Rose LLP is noted for its ‘highly professional and very diligent service’. ‘The true cream of the crop’, says one client, who notes that ‘the team commands tremendous respect and cuts through the nonsense’. Ralph Ferrara in Washington DC and New York-based practice heads Jonathan Richman and Gregg Mashberg are ‘very knowledgeable and well respected, and they work well together’. Ferrara and Ann Ashton in DC, who delivers ‘trust and credibility along with litigation and trial skills and the ability to negotiate creatively’, were part of a large team that advised the Financial Oversight and Management Board of Puerto Rico on securities litigation relating to management of its $74bn of bond debt and $50bn of underfunded pension liabilities. With Richman, they also acted for Fifth Street Asset Management in class actions and derivative cases alleging that it overvalued investments to improve its financial position prior to its IPO. Joshua Newville is another key partner.
