Within: Securities litigation: defense

Shearman & Sterling LLPprovides excellent advice and is always thoughtful and commercial in its approach to problems’. Clients describe it as ‘a leading firm for IPO cases and for representing underwriters’. New York-based head of litigation Adam Hakki is ‘superb, extremely responsive and benefits from superlative judgment’. Alongside rising star Daniel Lewis, he represented Countrywide in dozens of high-profile cases relating to RMBS transactions. Joseph Frank and up-and-coming partner Agnès Dunogué recently secured victories in RMBS cases for Nomura when the New York Court of Appeals barred claims for damages, and for Barclays when an appellate decision extinguished more than $422m in securities claims brought by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle. Hakki and San Francisco-based Patrick Robbins also represented underwriters of the Alibaba IPO in securities litigation alleging that offering documents were misleading. Jaculin Aaron regularly acts for underwriters and her highlights included Ho v Duoyuan Global Water, Inc. Stuart Baskin and Brian Polovoy, who advised Ruby Tuesday in a class action in Tennessee, are also highly rated.
