Jacob H. Zamansky


Mr. Zamansky is one of the leading securities litigation attorneys in the country.

He has won ground-breaking FINRA Arbitration cases on behalf of investors which have led to substantial settlements and payouts to investors all over the country.

During the 2008 financial crises, Mr. Zamansky led the way in recovering losses for investors in structured products such as the so-called “100% Principal Protected Notes” issued by the now defunct Lehman Brothers and following the debt crisis in Puerto Rico, he helped hundreds of investors recover their PR bond losses.

Mr. Zamansky and his firm have been appointed lead or co-lead counsel in numerous high profile hedge fund cases and have been successful in recovering millions of dollars for hedge fund investors.

Mr. Zamansky’s ERISA work includes appointments as lead or co-lead counsel representating employees of IBM, JC Penney, Ivy Asset Management, Avon and others in litigation concerning their purchases of company stock in violation of the ERISA and the Federal Securities Laws.

The Zamansky firm recently argued before the United States Supreme Court on behalf of IBM’s employees (Jander v. IBM).

Mr. Zamansky has been at the forefront of 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 the New York Attorney General 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.

Mr. Zamansky has worked for more than 40 years as a litigator, including positions at Skadden Arps, Slate, Meagher and Flom LLP. His tenure also included serving as a federal prosecutor with the Federal Trade Commission.

A native of Philadelphia, Mr. Zamansky has been a frequent expert commentator on CNBC, CNN, and FOX Business News, and has published opinion pieces in The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times and USA Today. He is regularly quoted and his cases have been chronicled in major financial and news publications.

He also writes a blog that is published at Zamansky.com.
