Public Investor Arbitration Recovery
$16,000,000 Million Plus: According to the Wall Street Journal, this was the largest arbitration award to a public investor, and many millions beyond out of pocket loss. Every penny was collected for this retired client from California. In the process our lawyers beat two mega defense firms.
National Futures Association (NFA) Arbitration Recovery with Punitive Damages
$8,000,000 Million Plus: We represented a retailer/manufacturer from Missouri, represented by the family’s baby boomer head, who recovered close to $9 million including a punitive damage award.

New York Investor Arbitration Result-Finding of Fraud
$6,000,000 Million Plus: A New York family from Long Island also prevailed on a finding of fraud and collected almost $7 million.

International Investor Recovered Funds from Securities Arbitration at the NYSE
$5,000,000 Million Plus: One of our string of successful cases for our global clientele, this multi-national businessman as reported by the New York Times set a record in the mid-1990's for the largest settlement ever reported in a case venued at the NYSE.

$1,000,000 Million Club: We traveled to Boston for the case of an elderly, retired engineer from Massachusetts who was induced by his broker to trade his blue chip portfolio for unsuitable investments.

International Customer Base: From our first case representing a small winery in Italy over 25 years ago, clients overseas have hired our New York City based firm to fight for their rights against major U.S. broker-dealers with offices abroad.

We initiated a case for the Swiss representative of a large group of predominantly German and Swiss investors who ultimately won an arbitration award of $3.5 Million.
