I have had a pleasure of working with David Greene (Senior Partner) and Fred Sheppard (Senior Associate). I was particularly impressed by their grasp of very complex issues involving international securities and their ability to deal with multijurisdictional problems that involved both continental and common law issues. Especially impressive was Mr. Greene’s in-depth
analysis of litigation perspectives and Mr. Sheppard’s extraordinary research into the arcane issues of complex securities and related contractual and tort claims.
