Clifford Chance in New York has 'a strong securities litigation practice and is distinct from other New York firms in that it has a broad international platform; it is a regular player in financial institution securities litigation matters'. Practice head Robert Houck is 'a standout practitioner', according to one client, who describes him as 'thoughtful and creative in his representations, and well regarded by his peers'. The firm has 17 US litigation partners and securities litigation for global financial institutions and US companies is a substantial part of their work. Houck represented ICBC Standard Bank in a class action concerning alleged manipulation of platinum and palladium benchmarks in London. Christopher Morvillo, who handled investigations by UK and US regulators for the founder of Autonomy, is recommended, as are Jeff Butler and rising star senior associate Benjamin Berringer.
