Appels Pro Bono

Pro bono is part of our DNA. The founding president of the Brennan Center for Justice began our group, and many of our lawyers devoted their careers to public service before joining us. The result is a practice in which we encourage our lawyers to devote themselves to the causes that matter to them, supported by the resources that a large law firm can provide. Those causes take numerous forms. We work with the National Veterans Legal Services Program to represent deserving veterans who have been deprived of the benefits they earned. We have teamed up with the New York Office of the Appellate ...

Financement des obligations relatives aux prestations de retraite

History That financing and a number of copy-cats that rapidly followed were tax-exempt and primarily driven by then legal arbitrage possibilities. Many of these transactions were structured as lease financings or as installment sales of annuities. Tax-exempt pension obligation bonds largely came to an end with the introduction of tax legislation that became part of the Tax Reform Act of 1986. However, we have continued to work on pension bonds that are tax-exempt because of special transition rules or special (non-arbitrage) situations. A new taxable version of pension obligation bonds ...

Our Revenue Bond Financing Group focuses on enterprise revenue bonds, that is, bonds payable from the revenues of an enterprise conducted by the public entity that issues the bonds.

Titrisation du tabac

In part, this is because Orrick is one of the few firms with the combination of resources required for such financings – public finance, securitization, tax and bankruptcy.  From the first transaction for the city of New York in November 1999 through some of the most recent, we have been counsel on more than 65 tobacco securitizations (including three pools) aggregating more than $30 billion. We are thoroughly familiar with, and have crafted disclosure and rendered required opinions about, the Master Settlement Agreement, the Model Statute, the Consent Decree and other related documents, ...

Antitrust (Cartels)

Cartel expertise Competition authorities worldwide are dialing up their anti-cartel efforts and heightening cross-border collaboration, with synchronized "dawn raids" mounted across jurisdictions. Companies can expect more of the same going forward – perhaps much more. Critical to risk management is an aggressive response that proactively addresses compliance alerts and other indications of anti-competitive conduct. Speed and agility can also mean the difference between amnesty or leniency and catastrophic sanctions. The choice of cartel counsel is thus a crucial decision point in protecting ...

Parité salariale

Pay equity is at the forefront of regulatory, political, shareholder, employee, and public concern. 2016 brought an unprecedented wave of new and proposed pay equity legislation and other initiatives at the federal and state level, seeking to address the pay gap. This is also a trend internationally. These initiatives will make it easier for employees and government agencies to bring pay claims against employers and may expose employers to public scrutiny as well as increased litigation risks and costs. While it remains to be seen how the Trump administration will pursue these issues at the ...

EEOC Confirms It Will Discontinue EEO-1 Pay Data Collection

by Erin M. Connell, Jessica R. L. James and Necia Hobbes | March.23.2020

Today, the EEOC formally confirmed that it will not renew its request for authorization to collect employer’s pay data under Component 2 of the EEO-1 moving forward.  The notice is consistent with its announcement last September, marking the end of a four-year saga over whether the pay data collection would go ahead (as we reported here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here).  Notably, the notice does not explain how the EEOC intends to use the pay data it already has collected, although it makes reference to using it in Title VII proceedings.  It does, however, confirm the ...
