Shutts & Bowen attorneys have substantial experience in handling matters involving allegations of fraud, including those involving the appointment of a receiver by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
Shutts & Bowen has handled a number of SEC receivership matters, including service as both the Receiver and counsel for the Receiver in an SEC receivership currently pending in Orlando, Florida and service on the Steering Committee in an SEC receivership in Miami, where Shutts & Bowen represents Instituto de Prevision Militar, the pension fund for the Guatemalan military. Shutts & Bowen lawyers have also participated in numerous SEC receiverships on behalf of investors and other involved parties, including the Pension Fund of America receivership, the ESM Government Securities receivership steering committee, and the Premium Sales and Mutual Benefit receiverships.
Shutts & Bowen also has substantial experience in directly pursuing recoveries from perpetrators of commercial fraud and in obtaining insurance recoveries on behalf of victims of fraud.
The firm will represent affected clients of Stanford Financial entities in filing claims with the SEC receiver, where appropriate, filing claims with the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC), where appropriate, and in the investigation and provision of recommendations concerning other courses of action that might lead to recoveries, including but not limited to, the possible filing of a class action law suit, as appropriate.
