Schulte Roth & Zabel News: U.S. Bankruptcy Judge rules in favor of JANA Partners vs. former clients of Marc Dreier

Hi Jonathan,

I’m writing to share with you the news that a U.S. bankruptcy judge has ruled in favor
of the hedge fund JANA Partners LLC in its defense against claims from former clients
of disbarred attorney Marc Dreier. The court ruled that former clients of Marc Dreier
bore the risks of their fraudulent agent when Dreier forged a signature on settlement
documents between his client and the hedge fund JANA.

Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP served as outside legal counsel to JANA Partners LLC;
the team was led by litigation partner Michael E. Swartz, whose practice focuses on
complex commercial, securities and business litigation and antitrust, and of counsel,
Nicole Z. Davidson.

Please let me know if you’d be interested in speaking with Michael Swartz of Schulte
Roth & Zabel. I’m happy to provide you with a copy of the ruling and any additional
information.

All the Best,
Alexis Stoller
