Deep Experience with Hedge Fund and Structured Product Litigation

Kasowitz has decades of experience advising hedge funds in high-stakes litigation and crafting creative solutions for issues relating to their investments.  We handle sophisticated commercial litigation, complex financial products and securities litigation, financial restructuring and employment litigation for our hedge fund clients.  We have successfully represented hedge funds in numerous litigations, negotiations and potential disputes involving securitizations and other structured finance products. 

We regularly advise activist investors on complex and fast-moving investment situations, with a focus on strategic counseling and how best to position the fund for success.  Our litigation experience provides our clients with a distinct advantage in these often-contentious situations. 

We also have a strong “opt-out” class action practice, and represent a number of hedge funds and other investment managers in direct actions to recover investment losses.  Pursuing direct securities actions often achieves a far greater recovery than passively relying on class counsel for a recovery that is pro rata with all other holders. 

Our hedge fund clients include BlueMountain, Bridgewater, Centerbridge Partners, Davidson Kempner Capital Management, Deer Park Road, Elliott Management, Harbinger Capital Partners, funds associated with Carl Icahn, MatlinPatterson, Mudrick Capital Management, Prophet Capital Asset Management, Serengeti Asset Management, Tilden Park Capital Management and Waterfall Asset Management.
