In re Lehman Brothers Equity/Debt Securities Litigation

Jonathan Levine, as one of the Class Counsel, represented a certified class of retail investors in Lehman-issued structured products sold by UBS Financial Services, Inc.  The plaintiffs alleged that UBS violated federal securities laws by selling the structured products pursuant to offering documents that misrepresented Lehman’s financial condition and failed to disclose that the “principal protection” feature of many of the notes depended upon Lehman’s solvency.  The case resulted in a settlement that established a $120 million fund to resolve the claims.
