Fox Rothschild’s Investments & Asset Management Litigation Group includes some of the most experienced capital markets, financial services and asset-backed securities litigators in the country. We represent investment banks, institutional investors and other institutional capital markets participants in an array of high-profile, high-stakes matters, including those arising from the 2008 financial crisis.
The 2008 financial crisis spawned exceedingly complex, multibillion-dollar litigation that continues unabated as institutional investors, investment banks, trustees and insurers seek to recover losses, mitigate exposure and monetize distressed assets. Litigating these cases requires the right combination of subject matter knowledge and complex litigation management and trial skill.
Our litigators understand the intricate financial products and investment transactions at the heart of high-stakes structured finance, asset management and other investment-related disputes. As counsel for major market participants such as Lehman Brothers, AIG and Federal Home Loan Banks, as well as other insurance companies, pension funds and hedge funds, we have tried some of the most important financial crisis cases, including the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy estate’s defeat of over $11 billion in mortgage repurchase claims. Our attorneys continue to manage and litigate hundreds of millions of dollars of mortgage indemnification claims on behalf of Lehman’s creditors and oversee other complex secondary mortgage market and mortgage-backed securities cases.
As the housing market recovers and the market for mortgage and other asset-backed securities is revitalized, Fox Rothschild brings to bear deep experience in the mortgage and capital markets space. Our attorneys are well-positioned to help clients mitigate the effects of a future downturn, including through pre- and post-purchase asset review and neutral dispute resolution. Our experienced putback, origination, underwriting, foreclosure, servicing and consumer finance lawyers apply their specific experience to financial assets—both individually and at the pool level—to provide truly informed advice and strategic transactional and litigation guidance.
Our Investments & Asset Management litigators also work closely with the firm’s Corporate, Capital Markets, Financial Services Industry, Securities Industry, Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy and Real Estate groups to provide a full suite of services and the subject matter knowledge to meet all our clients’ needs.
