Jessie Gabriel works smartly and tirelessly to resolve shareholder disputes for her clients, which include public and private issuers, officers and directors, underwriters, and private equity firms. She also counsels her clients on ways to reduce litigation exposure through well-crafted investor agreements, insurance policies and corporate documents. Jessie is frequently invited to speak on the changing landscape of securities litigation and how it is increasingly intersecting with other fields of law. She co-chairs the Structured Products & Private Funds Subcommittee of the ABA's Securities Litigation Committee and will chair the securities program at the 2017 ABA Annual Meeting.
Jessie believes that management skills are just as important as substantive legal knowledge. Drawing from her previous career in economics, she demands strong project management and efficient, cost-effective utilization of resources in all her cases. Jessie has a natural ability to execute a legal strategy while coordinating large teams of attorneys and outside vendors, most notably in her representation of Irving H. Picard, the Trustee for the global liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC. She has managed the Trustee's claims against Madoff's largest hedge fund investor and his primary banker. Jessie co-chairs the Women's Steering Committee for the New York office.
