Q & A
What trends should clients be aware of in defending against alleged deficiencies in residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) offerings?
Large scale, multi-party cases are the new normal in financial services litigation. Clients and their lawyers must be prepared to handle millions of documents and coordinate discovery, expert witness testimony and the deposition of key witnesses through common defense and cost-sharing agreements with dozens of other defendants and their legal teams. It is very important for clients to find representation that is experienced in e-discovery to be able to manage properly large volumes of documents.
How does your experience working with committees benefit your clients?
High stakes, precedent-setting cases with more than one hundred defendants require strategic vision, leadership and effective team management. With recent efforts to consolidate RMBS cases under one judge, clients should choose representation that possess the skills and know-how to become active committee members and often lead the various committees set up under the case management order. My experience with committees places me in a position to defend my clients, spearhead the appropriate activities and maintain control of the process. Financial services companies understand the value of that experience.
Outside of your commercial litigation practice, what projects are you passionate about?
I have worked closely with up and coming musicians and other artists- including my daughter who is a singer/songwriter- needing guidance to properly structure their recording deals and other business agreements, and protect their intellectual property using copyrights and other means. It is rewarding to use my legal experience and skills to assist those who are pursuing their career dreams in the entertainment industry. I also enjoy assisting creative clients who are wildly enthusiastic about their product and tirelessly devoted to achieving success
