For the fourth consecutive year, Benchmark Litigation named Gibbs & Bruns LLP’s Kathy Patrick to its elite “Top Ten Female Litigators” list in the special directory, Benchmark Top 250 Women in Litigation.
Interviewed in the 2014 edition, Gibbs & Bruns partner Kathy Patrick enjoys an enviable status of appearing for the fourth year on the publication’s list of 10 female litigators in the country – an honor bestowed in large part due to the strength of unanimous praise by peers and clients. Patrick was part of a team that, in March 2015, achieved a victory on behalf of institutional investors when the New York appellate court confirmed the $8.5 billion Countrywide RMBS settlement in its entirety. The precedent-setting ruling is considered by many to be a turning point in Wall Street’s struggle with the fallout from the economic collapse. She is currently is acting on behalf of Fannie Mae in an $800 million LIBOR suit against some of the most powerful banks in the world, in addition to helping issue a Notice of Non-performance to BNY Mellon, Citibank, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, US Bank, and Wells Fargo, as trustees, securities administrators, and/or master servicers regarding failures by Ocwen Financial Corporation to comply with agreements involving 119 RMBS trusts with an original balance of $82 billion.
