With more than two dozen former regulators and prosecutors on our bench, S&C’s Financial Services Investigations and Litigation Group stands ready to take on any challenge. Our depth of experience is unrivaled, as evidenced by the number of major financial institutions that turned to us during the subprime financial crisis.
General Commercial Litigation
Corporate Crime & Investigations
White Collar Crime & Government Investigations
Our recent engagements include the following:
We have steered many of the world’s biggest banks and financial firms through multiagency probes, including Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Barclays, Moody’s and Nomura.
Our practice is without peer. As one example, for UBS, we defeated a decade-long securities class action by Enron investors when other banks paid billions to settle similar lawsuits.
Sanctions and AML
We have successfully negotiated a majority of the highest-profile settlements in the last decade, including for clients Barclays, ING Group, Standard Chartered Bank, HSBC Group and BNP Paribas.
Antitrust and Market Manipulation Actions
We’ve led the way defending banks facing enormous exposure in investigations and litigation, including those involving benchmark interest rates, auction rate securities and commodities futures.
In these types of matters and others, our litigators collaborate with their colleagues in our Financial Services Practice to deepen their understanding of the markets and chart new strategies.
