Levine Lee is honored to be shortlisted by Global Investigations Review (GIR) as the only U.S. finalist for Boutique or Regional Investigations Practice of the Year, and also as a finalist for Most Important Court Case of the Year, for its representation of Deutsche Bank trader Gavin Black in securing his acquittal in the LIBOR investigation. The Second Circuit’s decision granting a judgment of acquittal not only vindicated Mr. Black, but also upended the government’s legal justification for its decade-long LIBOR investigation, led to the reversal of other convictions, and gave rise to a host of questions about the investigation.

Congratulations to Seth L. Levine, Scott B. Klugman and the rest of the Levine Lee team. Thanks to our UK counsel, Jonathan Brogden and John Bramhall of DAC Beachcroft LLP, and congratulations to our co-defendant’s counsel, Kenneth Breen and Phara Guberman, now at Cadwalader, on their award nomination as well.
