April 2, 2021

Cleary Gottlieb partners Roger Cooper and Lisa Vicens and associates Tom Kessler, Jessica Roll, Rebecca Michaud, and Rebecca Prager were selected as “Litigators of the Week” finalists by The American Lawyer’s Litigation Daily.

The team successfullysecured the dismissal of a securities class action on behalf of International Flavors & Fragrances, its Israeli subsidiary Frutarom, and current and former executives of both companies. On March 30, 2021, U.S. District Senior Judge Naomi Buchwald dismissed claims tied to a 2019 stock drop that followed the disclosure that Frutarom had been making kickback payments to customers in Russia and Ukraine.
