Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP in New York ‘has for decades tried and litigated complex, high-stakes securities matters and the lawyers are all top-notch, which is why they get many of the headline cases and help companies navigate to successful results‘, remarks a client. Chair of litigation Tariq Mundiya is ‘an awesome attorney who comes up with innovative strategies to obtain the best possible results – he is not just book-smart, but also a master strategic thinker who exercises top-notch judgment‘. He recently acted for Xerox Corporation in a $1bn derivative suit. Practice vice-chairs Todd Cosenza and Antonio Yanez scored a major victory for Lehman Brothers Holding when an $11.4bn claim brought by RMBS trustees was settled for $2.38bn. Yanez is currently handling matters arising from Puerto Rico’s municipal bankruptcy for Bettina Whyte, the appointed agent for the Puerto Rico Sales Tax Financing Corporation. Securities litigation group chair Michael Young and, in Washington DC, senior counsel Richard Bernstein are also recommended.
