Firm Overview: We are a boutique litigation law firm that focuses on securities cases, broker-dealer litigation, adversarial actions and clawback defense. Our firm represents hundreds of investors who invested directly with Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC. Our attorneys were some of the first to assist Madoff victims in the filing of their Securities Investor Protection Corporation claims forms, and were at the forefront of the “net equity” issue by filing a class action on behalf of victims and arguing the issue before the bankruptcy court. We currently represent numerous Madoff victims in defense of the Trustee’s clawback actions, and in the prosecution of their claims against the SEC. Our firm was also selected as counsel by the steering committee of a Google Group of approximately 300 investors called MadoffSurvivors, who exemplify the true victims of the Madoff ponzi scheme. Our lawyers have been featured in both national and local news programs and in an array of publications based on our expertise on Madoff related matters. If you are a victim of this fraud and you would like to retain Lax & Neville, LLP to represent you in a clawback action, please call Lax & Neville, LLP, (212) 696-1999.
