Kehoe Law Firm Announces Partial Settlement with Citigroup in the FX Indirect Purchaser Litigation –$9,950,000 and “Reasonable Cooperation.”

Kehoe Law Firm, on behalf of its client, FX Primus Ltd., announced today that a partial settlement has been reached in the FX Indirect Purchaser litigation with defendant Citigroup Inc., Citibank, N.A., Citicorp, and Citigroup Global Markets Inc. (collectively, “Citigroup”), partially settling claims in Contant, et al. v. Bank of America Corp., et al., No. 1:17-cv-03139 (LGS) (S.D.N.Y.)  and consolidated actions.

“In the pursuit of justice, we are pleased to announce a significant step forward in the litigation through a partial settlement with Citigroup Inc., on behalf of our client, FX Primus Ltd,” according to Kehoe Law Firm Partner, John A. Kehoe.

Pursuant to the terms of the settlement, Citigroup agreed to pay an amount of $9,950,000 and to provide “reasonable cooperation” in the continued prosecution of the Action against the non-settling defendant banks, as set forth in the Settlement Agreement.

The lawsuit alleges that prominent financial institutions, including Citigroup, Standard Chartered, Société Générale, Bank of America, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley, RBC, RBS, and UBS (the “Defendants”), conspired to fix foreign currency (“FX”) instrument prices.

This alleged collusion resulted in overcharging individuals and entities when purchasing FX Instruments directly from a Defendant or one of their alleged co-conspirators

from December 1, 2007, through July 17, 2020, and the purchaser lived in NY, AZ, CA, FL, IL, MA, MN, or NC at the time of the transaction.

According to Mr. Kehoe, “as we continue to prosecute the action against other defendants, the cooperation secured from Citigroup stands as a formidable tool, empowering us to pursue justice and fair compensation for those who may have been affected by the manipulation of foreign currency instrument prices.”  In this pursuit, “we remain steadfast, resolute, and unwavering in our commitment for a fair and just outcome for our clients.”
