Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom LLP

Robert Fumerton represents a broad spectrum of U.S. and international clients in a wide variety of complex corporate, commercial and securities litigations in federal and state courts, and U.S. and international arbitration proceedings.

On behalf of UBS, Mr. Fumerton was a lead trial lawyer in the first ever residential mortgage backed securities action brought by a trustee to go to trial. In the unprecedented trial, where the trustee was seeking more than $2 billion in damages, Mr. Fumerton delivered the closing argument and conducted the majority of the examinations, including the cross-examination of Plaintiff’s central expert, which received extensive media attention.

In another case of first impression, Mr. Fumerton is currently representing the underwriters of two multibillion-dollar global note offerings for Petrobras, the largest government-owned oil company in Brazil, in an action alleging securities violations based on the highly-publicized corruption and bribery allegations surrounding the Brazilian government.

Mr. Fumerton was lead counsel for Yahoo! in the Southern District of New York and Second Circuit proceedings against Microsoft seeking to vacate an emergency arbitration award granted to Microsoft concerning a strategic alliance between the parties under which Yahoo would migrate its search advertising services to Microsoft’s “Bing Ads” platform in various markets worldwide.

Mr. Fumerton represented UBS and Société Générale in the landmark litigation filed by the Federal Housing Finance Authority, as conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, arising out of the purchase of nearly $200 billion of residential mortgage-backed securities.

Mr. Fumerton has represented several China-based issuers, including Jumei International Holding Ltd., AirMediaGroup, Inc. and iDreamSky, in class action suits alleging that the companies made false or misleading statements to shareholders.

After a full evidentiary trial before the American Arbitration Association, Mr. Fumerton won a complete victory on behalf of SanDisk in arbitration against Samsung Electronics. The dispute, which has garnered significant media attention, related to the delivery of critical electronic components and patent licenses.
