Press Release: Banner 6 Months for Wittenberg Law

For Immediate Release
Date June 22, 2011
Jeffrey Wittenberg, Esq.

Wittenberg Law has had a banner first half of 2011. In January, Wittenberg Law achieved an excellent settlement in a commercial dispute with one the country’s most aggressive class action law firms. “I litigated against some of the best attorneys in the business, and I was able to quickly position my opponents into a large and favorable settlement of the case,” stated Jeffrey Wittenberg.

In April, Wittenberg Law won a trial involving a breach of contract claim on behalf of a sophisticated investment advisory firm against one of the world’s largest investment banks after three full days of hearings before an arbitration panel at the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). This trial involved direct and cross examination of 11 witnesses. Mr. Wittenberg said that, “many attorneys who heard the facts of this case told me that I had no chance of winning because the defendant never entered into a contract in the first place. Thanks to my strong background in securities, contracts and corporate law, I was able to help my client achieve a significant victory over a much larger opponent represented by very capable and seasoned New York counsel in a hotly contested dispute.”

In fact, Mr. Wittenberg’s opposing counsel told him at the conclusion of the hearing that “I do not think it is possible for anyone to have done a better job than you did for your clients in terms of how you presented your case… I have no doubt you will establish yourself as a feared trial lawyer as your career progresses.”

In May, Wittenberg Law counseled a Santa Monica-based internet company in a dispute with an investor and a manager of the company to reach an extraordinarily favorable settlement, very efficiently and quickly, all while incurring low legal fees. “I was able to reach a deal without litigation by taking fast action to position my client in a way that all parties realized would ultimately have achieved a victory for my client in court,” stated Mr. Wittenberg.

Wittenberg Law is currently representing clients in respect to securities arbitrations, attorney malpractice, commercial disputes, business transactions and general corporate counsel. According to Mr. Wittenberg, “Wittenberg Law is building a reputation for sophisticated representation of businesses and investors one case at a time with the underlying philosophy that the legal profession remains a noble one, to be practiced with integrity and the highest standard of ethic, legal reasoning and intellect.”
