Chambers Review

This content is provided by Chambers based on our research. Learn more about our methodology.

What the team is known for

High-caliber practice group with an excellent track record in high-stakes and high-value corporate disputes, drawing from a strong team of appellate attorneys with extensive experience in the Supreme Court and wider federal courts of appeal. Notable strengths in technology and financial services litigation, including deep experience in IP matters heard before the Federal Circuit.

Strengths

Clients note: "They are not only a pleasure to work with, but they are amazingly brilliant both substantively as well as strategically."

One source reports: "They made very complicated things very simple and ultimately helped us resolve the case and put forward streamlined arguments."

Another source adds:"They have the best strategic, analytical and creative thinkers, and provide high-quality work even in the face of complex and difficult issues. They're the best at turning mind-numbingly dense legal doctrine into elegant analysis that resonates with both trial and appellate courts."

Work highlights

Successfully represented Credit Suisse before the New York Supreme Court in a $3.8 billion RMBS case, following a claim by an investor after the expiration of the statute of limitations.

Notable practitioners

Eric Shumsky specializes in acting for major clients in the technology space on significant appeals. Clients say: "He brings a great command of the facts through meticulous preparation, along with a great talent at engaging judges thematically."

Joshua Rosenkranz "has a great sense of strategy on what's going to work before the appellate panel and what areas to emphasize," reports one client. He regularly acts for major clients on high-stakes appeals and is an experienced Supreme Court advocate. He has particular expertise in intellectual property disputes. One client states: "I consider Josh to be the best appellate advocate in the country. No one has the same combination of detailed command of the facts and the law, with the ability to articulate high-level themes that are memorable and pack a punch."

Robert Loeb "excels at identifying and explaining complex issues in simple terms," according to clients. He is particularly adept at acting for clients in the financial services sector and has notable expertise in bankruptcy matters. One source states: "He is very good on his feet and he really knows the ins and outs of appellate work. He is a very good guide through the intricacies of the appellate process."
