Edward E. Filusch

Edward E. Filusch’s practice focuses on complex commercial and financial products litigation. He represents insurers, banks, and individuals in civil and criminal matters in state and federal court. Ed’s recent representation includes participating in the firm’s representation of MBIA Inc., the world’s largest monoline insurer, in defense of four separate state and federal actions brought by 19 of the world’s largest financial institutions, bondholders, and a putative nationwide class represented by several hedge funds – all arising from MBIA’s $5 billion corporate restructuring in 2009. All of these actions concern complex financial analyses, including 30 to 40 year loss projections for MBIA Insurance’s insured losses on mortgage-backed securities and CDOs (through credit-default swaps and otherwise), and whether MBIA under-reserved for such losses, thus rendering it insolvent at the time of the restructuring.

Ed has been recognized as a “Rising Star” in the 2014 edition of New York Metro Super Lawyers in the area of Business Litigation.

Prior to joining Kasowitz, Ed served as a law clerk to the Honorable Brian M. Cogan of the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York. Ed began his legal career as an associate in the White Collar Criminal Defense Group of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
