Stephen Fishbein - Shearman & Sterling LLP

Within: Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Matters pertaining to the financial services industry constitute the core competency of the group at Shearman & Sterling LLP, which has substantial expertise in financial, securities and antitrust regulation. In a particular highlight, New York's Stuart Baskin and San Francisco's Patrick Robbins are acting as counsel to the independent directors of Wells Fargo in connection with an independent investigation into the bank's retail sales practices. In another key matter, Baskin and Stephen Fishbein (also based in New York) are assisting Citigroup with an internal investigation connected with US regulatory and enforcement inquiries into a $400m fraud perpetrated against the bank's Mexican unit. In terms of individual representations, the group is defending the former CFO of Logitech in a contested SEC enforcement action concerning alleged accounting irregularities. Adam Hakki, who jointly chairs the group alongside Fishbein and Robbins, is another practitioner to note.
