Cohen Milstein is proud to announce that Julie Goldsmith Reiser has been named to Law360’s inaugural list of “Women in Securities Law,” which recognized 25 female attorneys who have achieved impressive success in securities litigation and enforcement. The Law360 series highlights women who have made a name for themselves as fair but tough enforcers.
Over the course of her illustrious career, Ms. Reiser has recovered millions of dollars for investors and won some major court decisions, including a recent appeal against BP. In recent years, she has spearheaded several complex securities actions for public pension fund clients that lost money on mortgage-backed securities issued by Countrywide Financial Corp. She also devised a novel argument that led to a $69 million settlement with MBS trustee banks and is currently at the helm of a securities class action against BP PLC over alleged misrepresentations about the extent of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
