Also landing runners-up honors this week are Matthew Ingber of Mayer Brown and Michael Martinez of Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel who secured a trial win against the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission last week. After a weeklong trial, a Manhattan jury on Friday sided with their client, James Im, a former senior bond trader at Nomura Inc. who took the stand and admitted to lying to customers about the prices of commercial mortgage-backed securities. The jury found Im, who also testified that clients knew not to take traders at face value, hadn’t committed securities fraud.
