Practices: Financial Disputes
Brown Rudnick has been a central player in the most significant financial disputes of our era. From Lyondell creditors to offshore Madoff feeder funds, clients trust us to find answers when others are unable to do so.
Brown Rudnick is a leading firm for the most complex, cutting-edge international and domestic financial disputes. We tackle the most challenging situations, finding or crafting workable and successful solutions for the most difficult matters. Led by trial-tested veterans, lawyers from every office and practice group work together seamlessly to staff major, complex disputes.
A unique feature of our financial disputes practice is that Brown Rudnick regularly assembles teams of seasoned litigators and bankruptcy attorneys to work together on the most complex of financial restructuring litigations. We also are regularly adverse to major financial institutions and auditors, and our successful experiences prosecuting claims against these entities often incents adversaries to explore a consensual resolution. Our firm has chosen as a matter of policy to eschew representation of most financial institutions and auditors in order to be free to take on the most contentious engagements against those institutions on behalf of bondholders, creditors, offshore liquidators, equity holders and other stakeholders.
Our lawyers have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in major international and domestic business litigation – providing an invaluable perspective on opposing strategies. We can predict next moves, identify key battles, and target weak spots in your opponent’s case. Most important, we win, before judges and juries as well as in the boardroom. Given our deep trial experience, we also are always prepared to take a case to trial if a settlement cannot be reached. At the same time, we staff our cases efficiently, and work with clients to ensure that the budget for each case (and phase of each case) meets the client’s expectations.
But we are best known for our creativity in seemingly no-win or dead-end situations. We’ve achieved remarkable results for countless “out-of-the-money” investors, fraud defendants and mass tort victims, successfully opposing some of the world’s largest financial institutions and their law firms.
We represent clients in cases involving:
- Bondholder and intercreditor disputes
- Cross-border frauds, insolvencies and litigations
- Securities fraud
- Bankruptcy, insolvency and restructuring
- Mass torts
- Breach of contract
