Practice groupLitigation, Arbitration, and Employment

Lisa Fried, a partner in our Financial Services Litigation practice, represents financial institutions and their employees, officers, and directors in state and federal litigation against private and government parties, internal investigations, and regulatory inquiries. She frequently represents global banks in cross-border matters and has particular experience in conflicts between U.S. and foreign laws and the extraterritorial application of U.S. law.

In recent years, Lisa has represented a major European bank in the multi-district class action litigation relating to LIBOR in federal court in New York, numerous international banks in discovery disputes involving conflicts between discovery rules and the laws of other countries, and present and former corporate officers accused of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and other federal securities laws.

She has also represented global bank defendants in class action litigation relating to forex and SSA bond trading. She routinely represents clients at oral argument and court conferences; prepares them for, and defends them at, depositions; and advocates for them at all stages of complex litigation and before enforcement and regulatory bodies including the Securities and Exchange Commission, the New York Department of Financial Services, and others. Lisa works with industry and foreign legal experts in connection with many of her matters.

Separately, Lisa represents domestic financial institutions in connection with investigations and lawsuits relating to those institutions' consumer-lending practices. In that context, she has personally handled and has supervised other attorneys handling hundreds of individual, mass, and class actions in state and federal court. Many of these matters have been resolved short of trial – via motion practice, mediation or settlement negotiation – but Lisa has successfully taken others through trial and appeal, in state and federal courts.
