  • One of the world’s most pre-eminent law firms and two of its partners, in their defense of high-profile malpractice claims and related litigation.
  • Caterpillar, Inc., in a successful appeal in New York’s First Department from an adverse verdict in asbestos litigation.  Vacating the verdict and dismissing the complaint against Caterpillar, the First Department refined the law of specific causation in asbestos cases, holding that it is insufficient to measure exposure to the products of a group of defendants because of the degree of exposure must be proven from the defendant’s products specifically.
  • Trustees in RMBS putback litigation in New York state court.
  • Briefed and argued a petition for habeas corpus on behalf of a New York State inmate in the Southern District of New York.
