Daniel P. Chiplock, a partner in our New York office, focuses his practice on securities, financial, consumer, and mass tort cases.
Daniel has played an active role in most of the firm’s financial cases over the last fifteen years, including the McKesson, Qwest, Bank of America, Tyco, Broadcom, Brooks, and Merck actions, in which he represented both large public pension funds and mutual funds that sustained investment losses in the hundreds of millions of dollars as a result of corporate misconduct.
More recently, Daniel has been heavily involved in the firm’s representation of public pension and ERISA funds against State Street and Bank of New York Mellon (“BNYM”) concerning the banks’ alleged practice of overcharging custodial clients for foreign currency exchange transactions. Lieff Cabraser is one of three firms charged with managing the daily activities and litigation strategy amongst plaintiffs’ counsel in the BNYM litigation (which was consolidated into a multi-district proceedings in which multiple civil and governmental actions were coordinated). Daniel has been the principal attorney at Lieff Cabraser responsible for managing the BNYM litigation, which recently settled on a global basis for $504 million.
In 2021, Daniel won a Certificate of Recognition from the American Association for Justice.
