In recent years, we have represented these clients in connection with corporate transactions valued at more than $75 billion, as well as dozens of litigation matters related to sub-prime structured investment products. Our team has significant experience resolving insurance coverage disputes, including working with D&O insurance carriers and their counsel on securities litigation matters filed against corporate and director/officer clients.  We also routinely defend clients in securities-related arbitrations, as well as other forms of alternative dispute resolution, throughout the U.S.

Our experience also includes serving as lead counsel for Special Litigation Committees to effectively and efficiently investigate derivative claims and allegations of breaches of fiduciary duties.

While we take great pride in our record of favorably resolving cases through both dispositive motions and favorable settlements, we have an equally impressive record of success in taking these complex litigation matters to trial. For example, in one of the first credit crisis-related trials in the country, we obtained an order of specific performance for our client, Genesco Inc., in connection with a proposed $1.6 billion merger with The Finish Line, Inc.
