Banking & Securities
Mayer Brown’s appellate group is an integral component of the Firm’s leading banking & securities law practice. We are versed in a broad range of issues on behalf of financial services companies, including—though not limited to—litigation relating to securities fraud, asset-backed securities, bank frauds, RICO, the Anti-Terrorism Act, and the reach of U.S. law to activities outside the United States.
Our recent successes demonstrate our deep and varied experience. We also prevailed in Stoneridge Investment Partners v. Scientific-Atlanta (U.S. Supreme Court), which the The Wall Street Journal described as “the biggest securities-litigation court clash in a generation.” We won the first major case under the Trust Indenture Act in decades in Retirement Board of the Policemen’s Annuity & Benefit Fund of the City of Chicago v. Bank of New York Mellon (Second Circuit). We litigated a landmark victory that limits the reach of the Anti-Terrorism Act as it applies to financial institutions in Rothstein v. UBS AG (Second Circuit). And we obtained a rare grant of mandamus, ordering the district court to dismiss claims against our foreign bank client for a lack of personal jurisdiction in Abelesz v. OTP Bank (Seventh Circuit).
