(PRWEB) June 09, 2013
Zamansky & Associates LLC has filed another FINRA arbitration on behalf of a brokerage customer who resides in Arizona against his brokerage firm, UBS Financial Services, Inc. The case is FINRA No. 13-00659.
The Statement of Claim alleges that UBS sold this investor who is in his 50s notes issued by the now-defunct Lehman Brothers that were unsuitable and too risky for his account. The Statement of Claim asserts that UBS hid its true views of Lehman’s deteriorating financial condition from its retail customers who were invested in these notes. The Statement of Claim alleges that UBS’s brokerage customers never knew that there was real possibility that these Lehman notes could default and become worthless. The Statement of Claim also alleges that UBS twice halted sales of Lehman notes in response to concerns about credit risk, but failed to disclose those halts to its thousands of retail customers who already held Lehman notes in their accounts.
Zamansky & Associates LLC successfully represented the former president of the Philadelphia 76-ers Pat Croce. As reported by Reuters on June 13, 2011, an arbitration panel found UBS liable for $2 million in damages, less $480,000 -- the residuary value of the note -- and interest from September 2008. This case was FINRA No. 10-00361. This damage award was, according to Jake Zamansky, in addition to payments and distributions that are made under the Lehman Brothers’ bankruptcy proceeding.
