Strategic & Tactical Planning

  • After an investor client was defrauded out of funds through a scam investment involving multiple shell companies, nominee agents, and stock manipulation, we sued the fraudulent promoter of the stock as well as the underlying company. Our attorneys were able to secure a jury verdict in favor of the investor amounting to more than $1.5 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
  • Another investor client of ours was fraudulently drawn into a Ponzi scheme which was made to appear as a legitimate futures trading company. We took the director of the Ponzi scheme to court as well as the director’s attorney who enabled the director’s fraud. Our attorneys were able to secure a $3.75 million judgment in favor of our client against the director and the director’s attorney, jointly and severally.
  • We have otherwise represented individuals, private companies and public companies in a litany of business-related disputes, from simple breaches of contract to sophisticated disputes involving numerous experts, cross-jurisdictional issues, class claims and other nuanced matters through trial and appeals
