Global Litigation Department Co-Chair Jonathan Polkes Featured in Q&A

Weil Global Litigation Department Co-Chair Jonathan Polkes was featured in a Q&A published by The New York Law Journal for his role in securing a complete victory in a $4 billion investor class action on August 25, 2017 on behalf of a group of defendants.

Mr. Polkes commented, “This really required a massive amount of concentration, focus and management. Everything was on as big a stage as you can possibly imagine. You could make this a case study of what it is to do a massive, complex M&A litigation, all arising out of an historic real estate transaction.”

Mr. Polkes also highlighted the team’s dedication as a key to their success, including Caroline Zalka, who started on the team as an associate, became partner and ultimately became the day-to-day manager of the cases.
