Mr. Hanin is a leading first-chair trial litigator with extensive experience representing investment firms in high-profile complex investment disputes concerning structured finance. His recent wins on behalf of securitization investors include groundbreaking decisions by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and the Delaware Court of Chancery affirming the rights of noteholders in the multi-billion dollar National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts and establishing that such investors are owed fiduciary obligations by the entities who control securitization collateral.
