Inter-Dealer Brokerage Firm - $500 Million Raiding Case
Representation of an affiliate of a billion-dollar inter-dealer brokerage firm in a large "key employee raiding case" brought by a competitor whose stock market valuation declined 24% (approximately $450 million) in one day after our client hired approximately 20 of its credit derivatives brokers and employees. After an intense oral argument by our firm and other firms aligned with our client in the spring of 2008, the New York Supreme Court denied a temporary restraining order. A few months later, the court denied a preliminary injunction. Thus, the subject employees were permitted to work for our client. The matter is now in arbitration where we are defending hundreds of millions of dollars in claims.
Asphalt Contractor - Post 9/11 Reconstruction Bidding Dispute
Representation of an asphalt contractor in challenging the bidding procedure used by New York City and utility companies to award significant street reconstruction work near the World Trade Center site after the September 11th terrorist attacks. We obtained several temporary stays on the grounds that the bidding procedure violated public procurement laws. The city cancelled its invitation to bid and used a different procurement procedure.
