Cahill Women Partner Litigation Highlights

Date: 03/27/24

In recognition and celebration of Cahill’s women leaders, please see below for selected litigation victories and settlements from the past year achieved by the firm’s women partners:

  • Tammy Roy was a part of the Cahill litigation team that successfully defended Credit Suisse, securing the conditional dismissal of a class action RICO litigation brought against Credit Suisse, KPMG, and dozens of individual officers and directors that were accused of violating both Swiss and U.S. law. The win earned Tammy and Cahill’s trial team recognition in The American Lawyer’s Litigators of the Week column. Tammy also served on the litigation team that prevailed on behalf of S&P Global, securing the dismissal of a case seeking to challenge certain credit ratings issued by S&P in 2005-2007 prior to the Financial Crisis. Earlier in the year, Tammy led the litigation team that defended UBS Securities LLC in connection with a $20 million FINRA arbitration filed against UBS by a hedge fund and related entities. After a six-day arbitration hearing in August, 2023, the panel of three arbitrators issued an award, denying Claimants’ claims in their entirety. The outcome was featured in an issue of The ArbReporter®, a weekly summary of FINRA arbitration awards to the industry published by J.S. Held.
  • Sheila Ramesh was among the partners on the team that defended Credit Suisse, securing a second circuit victory in a putative securities class action alleging that Credit Suisse was responsible for losses suffered by short sellers following a June 2020 announcement that Credit Suisse would delist and suspend further issuances of the DGAZ ETNs. The win earned Sheila and Cahill’s trial team recognition in The American Lawyer’s Litigators of the Week column.
  • Sesi Garimella was a part of the team that prevailed on behalf of Deutsche Bank and five individual respondentssecuring the dismissal of a FINRA arbitration brought by an Illinois broker-dealer stemming from a sale of securities intended to reduce an overdraft in a Deutsche Bank account.
