Most recently, Ms. Sinderson played a key role in two of the firm's largest cases, both of which settled near trial for billions of dollars on behalf of investors. In In re Merck Securities Litigation, she was a member of the small trial team which resulted in a $1.062 billion settlement. This settlement is the second largest recovery ever obtained in the Third Circuit, one of the top 10 recoveries of all time, and the largest recovery ever achieved against a pharmaceutical company. She was also a member of the trial team prosecuting In re Bank of America Securities Litigation, which resulted in a recovery of $2.425 billion, the single largest securities class action recovery ever resolving violations of Sections 14(a) and 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act and one of the largest shareholder recoveries in history.
Ms. Sinderson has also recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of defrauded investors in other high-profile securities litigations. She was a member of the trial team in Washington Mutual, Inc., an action which resulted in a recovery of $208.5 million, arising for alleged fraudulent conduct in the thrift's home lending operations. This is one of the largest settlements achieved in a case related to the fallout of the subprime crisis and the largest recovery ever achieved in a securities class action in the Western District of Washington. She was also a part of the trial teams that prosecuted Bristol-Myers Squibb Co., which resolved for $125 million, and Biovail Corporation, which resulted in a recovery of $138 million for defrauded investors and represents the second largest recovery in any securities case involving a Canadian issuer.
