Private Equity and Hedge Funds


Selendy & Gay’s partners have a track record of working closely with private equity and hedge funds to not only overcome the recurring litigation risks that funds face across industry sectors—but also to capitalize on opportunities where litigation drives an investment’s value.

Our Securities and Structured Finance experience, which includes litigating to verdict or settlement many of the highest-stakes cases in the history of the field, has proven our mastery of synthetic and asset-backed collateralized debt obligations, credit-default swaps, credit-linked notes, financial guaranty insurance, re-insurance, mortgage-backed obligations, and other complex financial structures.

This subject-matter expertise, combined with our proven trial skills, have resulted in successes for our fund clients in a broad array of matters involving, for example, insider trading, market timing, distressed investments, adversary proceedings in bankruptcy, claims of breach of fiduciary duty and self-dealing, PIPEs investing, and disputes of many types with the nation’s largest banks and broker dealers. We have also leveraged our experience and familiarity with the major regulators in successfully representing investment funds, or executives of such funds, in proceedings conducted by the DOJ and the SEC.
