One Proskauer Rose has settled with investors, an investor committee, and the court-appointed receiver in the Stanford Financial Ponzi scheme for US$63m. The firm, which was fighting the claims for nine years, did not admit to any wrongdoing or liability.

Legacy Chadbourne & Parke, where Sjoblom had also worked, settled claims connected to the Ponzi scheme in 2016 for US$35m.
