Keith focuses his practice on advising financial institutions in complex litigation and regulatory matters involving structured financial products and consumer financial products, with a particular emphasis on matters involving asset-backed securities (ABS). He provides guidance on risk and documentation issues involving financial products and litigates related disputes, including high-stakes cases in state and federal courts in New York and Delaware.

In his practice, Keith regularly counsels corporate trustees, securities administrators, paying agents, servicers, and other parties. He has provided advice on numerous first-of-their-kind issues affecting the ABS industry and is consistently called upon in unique and challenging circumstances. His capabilities and experience span all product types, including securities backed by residential mortgage loans, whole business assets, private student loans, and other assets. His matters typically involve investors, deal parties, and financial regulators, and he has experience advising on cross-border issues. He has handled all phases of litigation from trial through appeal.

In addition to his financial products practice, Keith has an active pro bono practice that has included immigration removal matters involving unaccompanied minors.

Prior to joining Mintz, Keith was a partner at a global law firm, where he built a significant practice focused on financial institutions. At the beginning of his legal career, Keith served as a law clerk to the justices of the New Hampshire Supreme Court.

While earning his JD, Keith served as the editor of the Boston University Law Review. In law school, Keith was an Edward F. Hennessey Distinguished Scholar and a Paul J. Liacos Distinguished Scholar.

In an Article 77 trust instruction proceeding, the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court of the State of New York recently issued a ruling safeguarding privileged communications between a corporate trustee and securities administrator (the “trustee”) and its counsel where the trustee is seeking a finding of good faith.  The development suggests that trustees and other parties may seek findings of good faith in Article 77 proceedings without losing privilege protections, so long as certain criteria are met.
