Labaton Sucharow LLP

Litigators at Labaton Sucharow LLP ‘always have the best interest of their clients in mind‘, and one client values the ‘trust and faith the team instils‘. Jay Himes and Gregory Asciolla are acting as co-lead counsel to two retirement systems regarding their class action against major banks on the grounds of alleged rigging of the US treasuries market by manipulating auctions for bills, notes and bonds. An end-payor plaintiff appointed a team including counsels Karin Garvey and Robin van der Meulen to oversee its price-fixing and bid-rigging action against generic pharmaceutical companies, and Modern Settings engaged the group to advise on its nationwide class action against leading major platinum and palladium dealers alleging a price-fixing conspiracy. In another highlight, the team represented purchasers of interest rate derivatives in the landmark ISDAfix class action.
