Legal Malpractice and Breach of Fiduciary Duty
In 2007, a former CEO of a publicly traded company asked Jeff to represent him against his attorneys, an international law firm with more than 1000 attorneys, for failing to disclose conflicts of interest and for breaching fiduciary duties. First, Jeff spent time with his client’s personal counsel, the former head securities lawyer of a top law firm, and then he met with the CEO to analyze the case and determine his goals. After reviewing documents and analyzing the issue in depth, Jeff devised a strategy to take on the offending firm. As a result, within six months of notifying the law firm about his client’s claims, the firm settled for a confidential amount.
Jeff has also represented companies against investment banks that misled them, individuals involved in partnership disputes, investors who were misled by their securities advisers, and companies that have had contracts breached As with people who suffer serious injuries at the hands of others, Jeff not only prosecutes these cases with meticulous attention makes sure that the jury must understands and identifies with the company or corporate executive he represents. As a result, Jeff has had tremendous success in the business litigation arena.
In light of his success, Jeff is willing to discuss handling such matters on a contingency or hourly basis.
