Specialized law firm. 
My Firm has been committed to provide legal assistance to investors, investment professionals and companies for over 20 years. I focus on matters relating to investments, securities, banking and corporate law. Most cases are won or resolved by following a creative and persistent approach.

For investors
I provide legal advise and conduct litigation in matters relating to investment fraud, investment funds, investor class actions, asset management, stock listings, bonds, derivatives and financial regulation.

For companies
I provide legal advise and conduct litigation in matters relating to banking & corporate finance, restructuring & insolvency, shareholders disputes and commercial conflicts.

Niche firm handling large cases
My firm regularly handles large cases such as class actions and group litigation relating to investments, securities, banking and other financial products or services. If necessary my Firm will put together a larger team of independent specialized attorneys with whom I have worked with for at least 10 years.  In such cases I will continue to act as your main case manager and first point of contact with the legal team.

You can present your case to me for a preliminary assessment free of charge. In many cases it is possible to handle your case on the basis of a discounted base rate plus a succes fee.
