Kevin Lloyd has a broad commercial litigation practice representing clients in federal and state courts, and before arbitration panels. He has been a member of the litigation team that has represented clients in matters involving federal and state securities laws, duties of corporate officers and directors, intellectual property disputes, commercial disputes and SEC enforcement actions.

Mr. Lloyd’s experience includes representing, among others:

  • MD Helicopters in an arbitration against Boeing over a multibillion-dollar military procurement program that resulted in a complete victory for the company. After a week-long arbitration, all of Boeing’s claims were dismissed and the panel affirmed that MD Helicopters had the right to build its military aircraft and participate in the military program without any restrictions;
  • multiple hedge funds in the successful settlement of federal and state lawsuits filed following the disclosure of Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme;
  • Freedom Communications in a class action litigation filed by its newspaper carriers. After a jury trial, Freedom entered into a favorable settlement;
  • Occidental Petroleum in the successful resolution of shareholder derivative suits;
  • MGA Entertainment, Inc. in its highly publicized multibillion-dollar “battle of the dolls” trial against Mattel, Inc. over the rights to the “Bratz” doll franchise. The Daily Journal described the case as among California’s “hardest-fought and highest-stakes intellectual property trials in recent memory”;
  • Aeon Ltd. in the successful resolution of derivative and class actions arising out of its acquisition of Talbots;
  • the CFO of a publicly traded corporation in an SEC action alleging accounting fraud; and
  • low income residents in the county of Fresno in an action that secured health care coverage.
