Represented an ERISA plan against a major Wall Street brokerage firm in an arbitration proceeding before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). In this proceeding, the pension plan sought to reverse purchases of more than $46 million dollars of preferred stock in two government sponsored entities. The plan alleged that the representatives of the brokerage firm had made false statements concerning the exposure of those entities to subprime loans and the value of the assets held by those entities. The hearing consisted of 20 days of testimony. After closing arguments, the panel announced that it had reached a decision without revealing its contents, but invited the plan to submit a petition for attorneys’ fees. Shortly thereafter, the brokerage firm agreed to settle the case on mutually acceptable terms.
