The Second Circuit affirmed a jury verdict obtained by Pastore in a federal securities fraud case. This concluded a contentious, multi-year litigation, defeating claims of fraudulent inducement and securities fraud brought against two hedge fund executives by a billionaire family office special purpose investment vehicle. The billionaire family office, the heirs to and founders of a well-known apparel store, had invested in the fund’s General Partner limited liability company.


Pastore LLC also won a complex securities and M&A appeal taken to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit arising from a derivative rights holder agreement and related investment banking engagement agreements. This matter was an appeal filed by Plaintiff-Appellant after Pastore LLC successfully defended this case in the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska.


Pastore LLC also represented a large national investment bank at the Third Circuit in a matter arising from a dispute over a $650 million financing. Pastore LLC had previously defeated White & Case in the DE Bankruptcy Court.
