Samir Sidi focuses his practice on securities fraud litigation.

Samir participated in the Firm’s securities class action case against Brazil’s largest oil company, Petrobras, arising from a multi-billion dollar kickback and bribery scheme, in which the Firm, as sole Lead Counsel, recently achieved a historic $3 billion settlement for the Class, as well as precedent-setting legal rulings.

Previously, Samir represented plaintiffs in disputes related to a variety of financial investments, including the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle and the FDIC in their multi-billion dollar actions against securities dealers to rescind the purchase of certificates backed by residential mortgage loans. He also represented institutional investors in a securities fraud action against Vivendi Universal (In re Vivendi Universal, S.A. Sec. Litig., 02 Civ. 5571 (S.D.N.Y.)), where in January 2010 the jury returned a verdict that at the time had an estimated value of up to $9 billion.

Samir also served as a judicial intern for the Administrative Office of the Federal Judiciary – Office of Legislative Affairs in Washington, D.C.

Samir received his LL.L from the University of Ottawa, and his LL.M. in Banking & Financial Law from the Boston University School of Law.
