About the Author Jake Zamansky

Jacob H. Zamansky is the principal of Zamansky LLC, a leading securities arbitration and class action litigation firm in New York which represents both individuals and institutions in structured note, complex securities, hedge fund, and employment-related arbitrations and litigations. He is one of the country's foremost authorities for investors claiming broker wrongdoing, or for brokers claiming wrongful termination or other misconduct by their employer. Mr. Zamansky was at the forefront of recent efforts to "clean up" Wall Street. In 2001, he successfully sued former Merrill Lynch analyst Henry Blodget on behalf of a New York pediatrician misled by Blodget's stock research. The case's successful resolution was the catalyst for New York Attorney General Elliot Spitzer to investigate the conflicts of interest on Wall Street and resulted in the well-reported $1.4 billion Global Settlement, which included many of the biggest names on Wall Street. More recently, Mr. Zamansky is one of the leading litigators and opinion leaders of the subprime mortgage crisis and the related hedge fund collapses, as well as on the misconduct associated with the wide sale of complex structured products to retail investors, representing both investors and mortgage borrowers who were defrauded by Wall Street firms and mortgage lenders.
