Calabasas, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2011
The Law Offices of Kramer and Kaslow recently commented on a May 16th New York Times article that reports the New York attorney general is looking into three major Wall Street Banks. According to the article, “The New York attorney general has requested information and documents in recent weeks from three major Wall Street banks about their mortgage securities operations during the credit boom, indicating the existence of a new investigation into practices that contributed to billions in mortgage losses.”
In the article, recently elected New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman declined to comment but “according to people briefed on the matter who were not authorized to speak publicly, Eric T. Schneiderman’s office have also requested meetings with representatives from Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.”
Noted attorney Philip Kramer, senior partner at the law firm of Kramer & Kaslow observes, “A lot of wrongdoing has been uncovered in civil cases. The Attorneys General are late to the game, but they will certainly benefit from our legal work – as will homeowners.”
