About Zamansky & Associates
Zamansky & Associates was founded in 1998 by Jacob H. Zamansky, one of the most successful securities arbitration attorneys in the country. His legal acumen and strong reputation for helping clients recover losses is well-known and respected among clients and professional peers alike.
Based in New York City, Zamansky & Associates files cases across the United States on behalf of institutional and individual investors as well as employees of securities firms and brokerages. The firm has represented a wide array of securities industry clients and the firm’s cases have set major precedents and spurred industry-wide reform. Zamansky & Associates’ clients have been awarded tens of millions of dollars due to brokerage malfeasance.
Zamansky & Associates is the leading voice of individual investors and securities industry professionals victimized by large corporate securities firms. Among the firm’s key practice areas are:
- Securities arbitration
- Financial Services Employment Arbitration
- Hedge Fund Litigation
- Subprime Litigation and Mortgage Fraud
As documented in the financial media and in several recent books, the firm played a significant role as catalyst for the New York Attorney General’s $1.4 billion global Wall Street settlement that sought to reform analyst research and investment banking conflicts; Zamansky & Associates filed the widely reported first case against Merrill Lynch and its then high-flying tech-stocks analyst Henry Blodget on behalf of Mr. Zamansky’s client, an individual investor who had been mislead by Mr. Blodget’s equity research reports. In that case, Zamansky & Associates uncovered evidence that showed analysts publicly touted speculative stocks in order to win favor and investment banking business from the firms they researched.
Zamansky & Associates also represents employees of financial services firms in claims against their employers and former employers. We not only argued the seminal case involving regulatory filing defamation, but we are active, passionate advocates for ongoing reform in this area.
