David SheerenGibbs & Bruns LLP

Gibbs & Bruns LLP is a boutique litigation firm of 33 lawyers based in Houston, Texas, that exclusively handles high-stakes business and commercial litigation. The firm handles both plaintiff and defense work, but it is its work for plaintiffs in cases involving residential mortgage-backed securities that has established it as a prominent force in securities litigation. Its recovery of $8.5bn from Countrywide in an RMBS case still stands out as one of the most significant pieces of litigation to arise from the global financial crisis. The practice is led by outstanding litigator Kathy Patrick, commercial and securities litigation partner Scott Humphries and up-and-coming partner David Sheeren, who played a key role in the firm’s successes in RMBS cases.  PIMCO, Blackrock and Goldman Sachs Asset Management are among their key clients.
