What are some of the department’s most satisfying successes of the past year and why? Our finance litigation team has achieved extraordinary results this past year through carefully-crafted legal arguments, combined with a mastery of the relevant facts. For example, we defeated class certification in mutual fund-related litigation against UBS AG, and persuaded the Kentucky Court of Appeals to dismiss a lawsuit against Prisma Capital Partners and other major investment firms in connection with the Kentucky public pension crisis. We fended off an attempt to enjoin a refinancing transaction by Hovnanian Enterprises, and achieved an outstanding outcome for Chilean conglomerate Corp Group in an ICC arbitration concerning shareholder rights in a Columbian bank. We also procured a standards-defining appellate ruling in an RMBS litigation for Countrywide Home Loans.
