Mr. Kuznicki earned his juris doctorate from New York University School of Law in 2008 and graduated summa cum laude in 2005 with a Bachelors Degree in Talmudic Law from Yeshiva Bnei Torah Institute.
His practice focuses on securities litigation, representing shareholders in class actions concerning allegations of securities fraud and breaches of fiduciary duties in connection with corporate governance and mergers and acquisitions.
Mr. Kuznicki was one of the lead attorneys representing the class in In re Cnova N.V. Securities Litigation, No. 16-cv-0444-LTS (S.D.N.Y.) – a case alleging, inter alia, violations of Section 11 that was successfully resolved for a cash settlement of $28.5 million – where Mr. Kuznicki was actively involved in each stage of the litigation and was instrumental in the development of the damages theory that substantially increased the class’ potential recoverable damages and ultimately resulted in class members recovering nearly 100% of their recognized losses.
Mr. Kuznicki was also one of the lead attorneys representing the class in Guevoura Fund Ltd. v. Sillerman, et al., No. 1:15-cv-07192-CM (S.D.N.Y.) – a case alleging, inter alia, violations of Section 10(b) based on defendants’ alleged manipulation of the market for SFX securities by making bad-faith bids to acquire the company, which is currently in mediation – by, among other things, persuading the court to apply a lower pleading standard to the manipulation claim.
Before turning his attention to class action litigation, Mr. Kuznicki’s practice focused on litigation and corporate matters involving trademarks, licensing, contracts, securities and real estate.
Mr. Kuznicki is admitted to practice law in the State of New York, and the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
