October 20, 2015
BLB&G partner Jerry Silk was a featured speaker at the Federal Bar Association’s Securities Law and AML (Anti-Money Laundering) Conference on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 at Mayer Brown LLP in New York City. He participated on the panel entitled, “Recent High Profile Securities Law Decisions.”
Mr. Silk's practice focuses on representing institutional investors on matters involving federal and state securities laws, accountants' liability, and the fiduciary duties of corporate officials, as well as general commercial and corporate litigation. He also advises creditors on their rights with respect to pursuing affirmative claims against officers and directors, as well as professionals both inside and outside the bankruptcy context. Mr. Silk was recognized by The National Law Journal in its inaugural list of “Litigation Trailblazers & Pioneers” — one of 50 lawyers in the country who have changed the practice of litigation through the use of innovative legal strategies — in no small part for the critical role he has played in helping the firm’s investor clients recover billions of dollars in litigation arising from the financial crisis, among other matters.
