ATLANTA (March 10)— LAWFUEL – Legal Announcement Service – Kilpatrick Stockton announced today that its Subprime and Credit Markets Litigation Team has expanded to include lawyers from the firm’s Special Investigations & White Collar Crime Team including partner Scott Marrah and other experienced, high-profile partners in Atlanta, New York, Washington, DC and North Carolina. Mr. Marrah chairs the firm’s Special Investigations & White Collar Crime Team and joined the firm last year after serving as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
“The complex challenges that subprime matters present require a team of lawyers with substantial experience in an array of legal disciplines who work together effectively across offices and traditional practice group lines,” said partner Mike Crisp, the leader of the firm’s complex business litigation practice.
In 2007, to enhance Kilpatrick Stockton’s service to clients dealing with litigation arising out of the subprime and credit markets crisis, the firm brought together lawyers from across all U.S. offices and relevant practice groups to form an interdisciplinary team tailored to solve subprime legal problems. Prior to forming the team, the firm was already representing many well-known companies in subprime related matters. The Subprime and Credit Markets Litigation Team currently represents clients in class actions, bankruptcy proceedings, insurance coverage cases, securities fraud cases, accounting negligence cases, and breach of contract disputes that arise directly out of the subprime and general credit crisis.
“Kilpatrick Stockton was on the front lines of the early legal battles in this area and from that vantage point we saw a need to expand the group to include participation by lawyers with criminal and internal investigation experience. Scott and his team give us that capability in spades,” added Mr. Crisp. “Even in civil cases, the expanded team will provide a unique and valuable perspective on the risks our corporate clients may face as the litigation and criminal investigations surrounding the credit crisis continue to rapidly expand.”
Although the Special Investigations & White Collar Crime Team will work closely on a daily basis with the Subprime and Credit Markets Litigation Team, it will remain a separate practice group in order to continue serving its own growing client base and their specific needs.
