Philippe Selendy is a founding partner of Selendy & Gay. 

Heralded as “The Man Who Took on Wall Street” by the Financial Times, Philippe has recovered more than $35 billion for clients in the last decade alone. These successes include an unprecedented $25 billion settlement for U.S. taxpayers stemming from residential mortgage-backed securities suits brought against the world’s largest banks, a representation which earned Philippe The American Lawyer’s “Litigator of the Year” award and first-ever Grand Prize in Litigation. 

Named one of the nation’s top 100 trial lawyers by Benchmark Litigation, a “Leading Lawyer” by Lawdragon and a “Trailblazer” (twice) by the National Law Journal, Philippe has over 25 years of experience in complex commercial litigation with particular expertise in securities, financial products, insurance, energy, and antitrust disputes. He is also routinely sought after to represent clients in domestic and international arbitrations and high-stakes public sector litigations. 

A supporter of advanced renewable energy technologies, Philippe serves on Vote Solar’s Leadership Council. He is a founding supporter of the independent Speyer Legacy School, and a board member of IQ Squared. Philippe sits on the New York City Bar Association’s Securities Litigation Committee.
