Disputes involving complex financial transactions can themselves be remarkably complex. With a deep understanding of these types of transactions, our attorneys represent financial institutions and other parties in litigation involving asset-based securities and structured finance transactions, both in and out of bankruptcy court.
The fallout from the financial crisis of 2009 left many in financial services with significant legal exposure and portfolios of distressed assets. Clients have turned to us to represent them in the wave of fraud, repurchase, and indemnity claims precipitated by the crisis, including claims arising from the issuance of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and fraudulent transfer claims arising from derivative and structured products and leveraged buyouts. Those actions continue to this day and have provided precedent for future claims by deal participants, opportunistic investors and bankruptcy trustees to recoup losses and unwind transactions in times of economic distress.
Asserting Creditors’ Rights in Any Situation
Our vast and in-depth involvement in the intricacies of structured financial products, along with our years of experience in the post-crisis litigation that followed, has provided a unique perspective on the original deal terms at the center of these disputes, making us well suited to assert our clients’ rights. We strive to enforce these rights through negotiated settlements — such as workouts and loan modifications — yet remain fully prepared to go to court. From wide-ranging fact discovery to complex expert discovery, from drafting comprehensive motions to arguing those motions in court, and from trials to appeals, clients count on us to steer them through any complicated and lengthy litigation.
