Kendra Schramm practices with the Firm’s International Litigation Practice, evaluating and prosecuting complex securities and investment-related matters on behalf of global institutional investors.A highly valued litigator with meaningful experience in large and complex securities matters, Kendra Schramm is a key member of the Firm’s International Litigation Practice, responsible for evaluating and prosecuting complex securities and investment-related matters taking place outside the U.S. on behalf of global institutional investors. Kendra recently co-authored " A Look at Shareholder Remedies in Japan,” in Law360, analyzing the evolving Japanese litigation regime.
BFA’s International Litigation Practice advises and represents BFA clients in securities and investment-related cases filed across the globe – including matters in Japan, France, Belgium, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Italy and elsewhere. The International Practice provides highly pragmatic advice to leading institutional investors on the comparative risks and merits of potential litigation – the majority of which requires a formal decision to participate. Kendra is instrumental to the Firm’s outreach to pension systems and sovereign wealth funds outside the United States to ensure their interests are represented in meritorious international litigation matters. Kendra also works with the Firm’s Client Monitoring and Case Evaluation Group to assist in the assessment and prosecution of domestic securities class actions.
Prior to joining the firm, Kendra was an associate at Labaton Sucharow LLP, where she was a member of the team that recovered more than $1 billion in total settlements in the landmark securities litigation against American International Group, Inc. and numerous related defendants. Kendra was also instrumental in prosecuting the complex securities litigation against the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae), which successfully alleged that investors’ losses were caused by Fannie Mae’s statements and actions rather than the financial crisis. The case resulted in a $170 million settlement.
