Our Litigation & Investigations group regularly counsels clients through their most important, complex, and sensitive matters. From “bet the company” litigation in commercial and regulatory disputes, to government and internal investigations, the Firm is devoted to helping clients achieve the most optimal solution in each and every matter. Our team understands the value of working closely with each client to understand the nuances and practicalities of their business, and we take a cross-discipline approach to leveraging the deep subject matter expertise of our firm’s wide array of practice groups and specialties.

Seward & Kissel’s lawyers have a proven track record of achieving outstanding results for our clients, both inside and outside the courtroom. We represent public and private companies as well as individuals across various industries, including a longstanding and continued focus on the financial services sector and the shipping and maritime sector. Our clients in the financial services space include foreign and domestic banks, investment banks, investment management companies, broker-dealers, investment funds, hedge funds, family offices, investment advisers, operating companies, senior executives, and other individuals. Our clients in the shipping and maritime space include publicly and privately held shipping companies, leading marine lenders, ship operators, ship managers, and institutional investors.

We are focused on solutions, and we recognize that each client and matter requires its own set of unique strategies and tactics. Drawing from our group’s collective experience in the private and public sector (with many of our attorneys having served as longstanding private sector counsel as well as in prior roles as federal and state prosecutors and regulators), we aggressively advocate for our clients through litigation in federal, state, and administrative proceedings where necessary. And we are equally adept at handling our client’s most sensitive matters discreetly and away from the courtroom where possible, knowing that sometimes the best results are avoiding a dispute or investigation altogether. We bring our diverse professional backgrounds, deep subject matter expertise, passion for helping our clients, and thoughtful approaches to every situation.
