Representative matters:

Yukos Capital S.a.r.l.: Obtained a $185 million judgment confirming an arbitral award in favor of Yukos Capital S.a.r.l. against OAO Samaraneftegaz.
Yukos Capital S.a.r.l.: Obtained a $420 million pre-judgment attachment against OJSC Oil Company Rosneft on behalf of Yukos Capital S.a.r.l. in aid of enforcement of a foreign arbitral award.
Gucci America, Inc., Balenciaga America, Inc., Tiffany & Co., and Other Luxury Brands: Represented Gucci America, Inc., Balenciaga America, Inc., Tiffany & Co., and other luxury brands in a series of trademark infringement actions against operators of websites that sell counterfeit goods, resulting in awards of millions of dollars in damages and broad injunctive relief. In 2009, the Gibson Dunn team brought claims in the Southern District of New York against Woodforest National Bank and others for their role in processing credit card orders for counterfeits. In June 2010, in a closely watched decision, the court denied the defendants’ motion to dismiss, finding that Gucci’s complaint sufficiently stated a contributory trademark liability claim. More recently, in Gucci America, Inc. v. Li, a different court granted Gibson Dunn’s motion to compel the Bank of China to produce counterfeiters’ bank records, despite claims that the documents were protected under Chinese law, and denied the Bank’s cross-motion to relieve its obligation to freeze the counterfeiters’ accounts.
Verizon Communications: Obtained a $60 million judgment on behalf of Verizon against a competitive local exchange carrier.
United Company RUSAL: Represented United Company RUSAL in federal lawsuit, obtaining a dismissal of a multi-billion dollar suit on grounds of forum non conveniens and an affirmance by the Second Circuit.
