Compass Lexecon expert Dr. Atanu Saha was retained by Stephen Senderowitz at Winston & Strawn LLP to serve as an expert witness in a class action lawsuit against Amaranth. The Plaintiffs alleged that Amaranth, through their trading of natural gas futures, manipulated natural gas futures prices for select contracts for approximately seven months in 2006. Dr. Saha submitted two expert reports and was deposed in this matter. The parties agreed to a settlement for a small fraction of the Plaintiffs’ claims. Dr. Saha was assisted by Hans-Jürgen Petersen, Elizabeth Wall, and Carina Chambarry in our New York office.
