Swaps & Derivatives Disputes

LLFW has represented financial institutions in litigation concerning the interpretation and enforcement of interest rate and total return swaps under the ISDA Master Agreement.  These cases involve the interpretation and enforcement of the complex terms of the ISDA Master Agreement and definitions, and the confirmations of specific transactions.  Counterparties refusing to perform under these agreements may assert claims of fraud or unconscionability, or may contest valuations of their exposure in the swap contracts.  LLFW has substantial experience with all of these issues arising under the ISDA Master Agreement.
