Bob Giuffra Named Litigator of the Week by The Am Law Litigation Daily for Reversal of Class Certification Against Goldman SachsJanuary 18, 2018 Read More
On January 18, The Am Law Litigation Daily selected Bob Giuffra as “Litigator of the Week” for his work obtaining reversal by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit of class certification against client Goldman Sachs. The case stemmed from the trades made famous in the book and movie The Big Short. Bob noted that the credit for the win should go to his mentor and longtime S&C litigation securities star Vince DiBlasi, who passed away on January 14. “To the extent we won this case, it’s really not my victory,” Bob said. “It’s much more a victory for Vince, and all the other partners at the firm that were trained by Vince.”
Since June 2011, Bob has been recognized as “Litigator of the Week” six times.
