Enron Securities Litigation
Consulting Experts in Securities Class Action
In one of the largest securities cases in U.S. history, Cambridge Finance Partners provided consulting services to counsel for a top-10 international bank in addition to assisting a testifying expert. This multi-year litigation, with plaintiffs’ total damages claim nearing $50 billion, involved a wide array of finance and economic research efforts. Typical for a 10b(5) securities case, we conducted a day-by-day event study, constructed trading models in order to replicate and critique plaintiffs’ damages claims, and analyzed financial reports, analysts’ reports, stock, bond, and options trading data, and other public information in order to identify curative disclosure events. We developed indices of industry performance that transformed over time along with the firm’s underlying business segments. We constructed bottom-up measures of enterprise value. In addition to these analyses, we assisted counsel in a multi-defendant coordinated defense effort, and we provided analysis and explanation of several financial structures including securitizations, swaps, derivatives, and other complex structures.
