As the global slowdown in the market for mortgage-backed securities threatens a core practice area of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, the New York law firm is also wrestling with a $70 million legal malpractice suit brought by a major issuer of such securities.

Such transactions involve the creation and issuance of tradeable securities tied to fixed assets or revenue streams, most commonly residential or commercial mortgages.
