Randall P. Ewing, Jr., is a partner in Korein Tillery’s Chicago office. Randall represents clients in all facets of high-stakes, complex litigation in federal and state court, including case investigation, preparing pleadings, taking and defending fact and expert depositions, working alongside experts, managing discovery, briefing dispositive and other legal issues, preparing witnesses for trial, conducting cross-examinations in a federal jury trial, and appeals.
At Korein Tillery, Mr. Ewing’s successful representations include:
- Representing the National Credit Union Administration Board in suing various banks in federal courts from New York to California over allegedly misrepresented mortgage-backed securities, which has resulted in recoveries exceeding $4 billion;
- Representing a class of investors suing international banks for an alleged global antitrust conspiracy within the markets for foreign currency exchange instruments, which currently has over $2 billion in settlements pending court approval; and
- Representing classes of investors in litigation against banks for improperly delaying or rejecting electronic foreign currency exchange trades, which already has one $50 million settlement pending court approval.
Before joining Korein Tillery, Mr. Ewing worked as a litigation associate at Boies Schiller Flexner. Among other trials, arbitrations, and appeals in which he was involved, Mr. Ewing was part of the team that represented Barclays Bank in relation to multi-billion dollar claims arising from its acquisition of Lehman Brothers during the 2008 financial crisis, which resulted in a complete victory for Barclays after an extended trial and multiple appeals. Randall was also part of the team that a brought a first-of-its-kind federal challenge to a state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage (California’s Proposition 8), which was tried and found to be unconstitutional, and he was responsible for briefing dispositive issues in a False Claims Act trial that resulted in the largest relator-only jury verdict in history.
Mr. Ewing earned his J.D., summa cum laude, from the University of Louisville Law School, where he earned the highest grade in nearly half of the classes he took, represented the school at several national moot court competitions, was a member of the Law Review, and interned for federal and state appellate judges. After law school, Randall worked for two years as a law clerk to federal appellate and district court judges.
