Coughlin Stoia Assembles Team to Advise Investors in Bernard Madoff Investment Securities
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Following the shocking disclosure of the long-running Ponzi scheme at Bernard Madoff Investment Securities (“Madoff”), a team of attorneys at Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins LLP (“Coughlin Stoia”) has been assembled to advise the firm’s clients regarding their legal options. Led by partners Samuel H. Rudman, Paul J. Geller, Robert M. Rothman and David A. Rosenfeld, the team also includes several of the firm’s forensic accountants, certified fraud examiners and investigators.
“We intend to aggressively pursue all possible claims against all possible defendants.”
“As the firm that represents more individual and institutional investors in securities litigation than any other firm, the scope of this fraud has impacted many of our clients, including those who invested directly with Madoff, those who invested in Madoff’s feeder hedge funds, and those who invested in any of the funds of funds that invested in Madoff,” said Samuel H. Rudman, a named partner at the firm. “We intend to aggressively pursue all possible claims against all possible defendants.”
Coughlin Stoia has been contacted by many individual and institutional investors who have suffered losses related to Madoff and is assisting them in evaluating their legal claims. The firm is particularly well suited to litigate cases of this magnitude, having achieved history’s largest securities class action recovery in the Enron case, as well as history’s largest opt-out recoveries in WorldCom and AOLTimeWarner.
