Bob Giuffra Featured as Litigator in the Spotlight by The American LawyerFebruary 19, 2013
The February 2013 issue of The American Lawyer highlighted Mr. Giuffra as litigator in the spotlight for his work representing Porsche Automobil Holding SE. In December, New York's Appellate Division, First Department, reversed a lower court ruling in Viking Global Equities v. Porsche Automobil Holding SE, refusing an attempt by a group of 26 hedge funds to avoid the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Morrison v. National Australia Bank. The appeals court held that the hedge funds could not pursue their suit in New York state on the ground of forum non conveniens. “I think the New York Appellate Division is mindful of not wanting New York to become the securities lawsuit capital of the world,” Mr. Giuffra noted.
