Since joining Anderson Kill in 2013, Mr. Graff has built a diverse and substantial practice and has initiated the launch of two practice groups he chairs or co-chairs, Foreign Investment Recovery and Regulated Products. Among other accomplishments, Mr. Graff has essentially created a new practice area in his work on behalf of U.S. investors in foreign companies that have "gone dark" on U.S. exchanges or in their dealings with private U.S. investors. The unusual remedies Mr. Graff has obtained in Delaware Chancery Court and New York and Nevada courts include contempt orders, "put" options at fair market value, and court appointment of a receiver, who has seized assets from nonresponsive companies in locations around the globe.
Mr. Graff prosecutes and defends all aspects of commercial disputes, including breach of contract, fraud, fraudulent conveyances, fiduciary duty, and business tort matters as well as securities litigations (including, arbitrations before FINRA and defending claims in federal courts). He handles complex litigation concerning shareholder rights in public securities and closely held corporations and litigations in the bankruptcy court to protect his clients' interests through, among other things, prosecution and defense of adversary proceedings.
Mr. Graff was recognized in Benchmark Litigation as a Future Star in 2016. In 2014, Law360 named Mr. Graff a Rising Star and one of 10 outstanding securities litigators under 40 in the United States. Also in 2014, Mr. Graff was named a Rising Star by The New York Law Journal.
"David is a creative litigator and has emerged as a real leader, taking our litigation group in exciting new directions," said Robert M. Horkovich, Anderson Kill's managing shareholder. "It's not surprising that a bevy of publications overseeing the legal profession have taken note of his accomplishments."
