During the subprime crisis of 2007 and 2008, myriad collateralized debt obligations ("CDOs") designed by banks across the United States and around the world and sold to investors as conservative investments, revealed themselves to be not only loaded with low-quality assets, but designed specifically to fail in order to benefit the banks, which shorted the investments. During the crisis, they did indeed fail, resulting in immense investor losses.
Following these revelations and the simultaneous collapse of the global real estate market, Kirby McInerney has been at the forefront of CDO-related litigation, and our experience and expertise in this area have generated a uniquely successful track record to date. Retained by large pension funds, financial institutions and investors around the world to identify and recoup fraud-related CDO losses, we have "decoded" numerous CDOs to discover and allege sophisticated fraud. Our efforts have frequently led rather than followed those of regulators and the government, and have already resulted in substantial settlements for investors.
