Philippe has over 25 years of experience in complex commercial litigation with particular expertise in securities, financial products, contracts, and antitrust disputes. Philippe’s significant matters include a 2023 trial win of $855 million for Cerberus Capital Management in an esoteric financing dispute against CIBC; the ongoing representation of Fortis in a $2 billion action against Johnson & Johnson arising from an acquisition of a robotics surgical platform; and as lead counsel representing the Federal Housing Finance Agency across its entire platform of residential mortgage-backed securities litigation against 18 major banks.
