MTB’s reputation for excellent oral and written advocacy leads sophisticated clients to engage the firm in the most challenging cases. In one such case, a major investment bank engaged the firm to argue an appeal after the trial court dismissed its case on a pre-trial motion. MTB assumed the representation and convinced the appellate court to reverse and remand. Having won on appeal, the client engaged MTB to continue representing it in the trial court, where the firm aggressively litigated the case while navigating it to a settlement. In another matter, a different financial institution engaged the firm to represent it at trial in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York when the Second Circuit Court of Appeals remanded. Consummate preparation, and winning key in limine and evidentiary rulings, positioned the firm to negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement on the eve of trial.
