Sashi Bach is an experienced litigator and a lawyer’s lawyer.  She represents law firms and lawyers in all aspects of attorney-client disputes, including defense of high stakes legal malpractice claims, legal ethics inquiries, pre-suit analysis and mediation. 

Ms. Bach also represents both plaintiffs and defendants in a wide array of other complex litigation matters, including shareholder derivative actions, class actions, fraud claims, intellectual property and technology disputes, and liquidation proceedings.  For instance, Ms. Bach is serving as co-lead counsel in a class action in the Southern District of New York on behalf of investors in Fairfield Sentry, the largest feeder fund into the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme.  Settlement recoveries in that action have exceeded $200 million, and Ms. Bach and co-counsel were recognized by the Daily Business Review as most effective class action lawyers in 2016 for their work on that case.

In addition, Ms. Bach represents a class of Florida's children on Medicaid in a pro bono suit to force Florida to comply with federal Medicaid requirements in providing health care to Florida's children.  On December 31, 2014, following a 90-plus day bench trial, the district court in this case issued a 153-page sweeping decision in favor of the plaintiffs.  See Florida Pediatric Society et al. v. Dudek et al, Case No. 05-23037-ClV-Jordan/O’Sullivan (S.D. Fla. Dec. 31, 2014).

Ms. Bach's achievements in past litigation include: recovery of a multi-million dollar escrow fund on behalf of the former owners of an information management company; defeating fraud claims brought against the sellers of a technology business; and obtaining a multi-million dollar judgment for a major industrial engineering company on a claim arising out of a generator accident in China.

Prior to joining Boies, Schiller & Flexner, Ms. Bach served as an Assistant County Attorney at the Miami-Dade County Attorney's Office, where she represented Miami-Dade County in civil litigation.
