Partner John Dellaportas was mentioned in The Deal Pipeline’s “Movers and Shakers” column. Mr. Dellaportas joined Kelley Drye as co-chair of the Securities Litigation and Enforcement practice.
In 2012, Dellaportas acted as lead trial counsel to Bruce R. Bent, co-inventor of the money market fund, and his son Bruce Bent II in a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission civil enforcement action against them. Following a month-long trial, a federal jury rendered a unanimous verdict clearing the Bents of all SEC and securities fraud charges.
