Sherman Wells Secures Another NJ Supreme Court Victory For Firm Client07/2020

Weinreich represented firm client Bank Leumi USA on an issue of first impression regarding the scope of the entire controversy doctrine.

New Jersey Lawyer Article: Registered Investment Advisors12/2015
Registered investment advisors (RIAs) are a growing sector of the wealth management industry. Over 2,000 new RIA firms were created last year alone. There are now more than 30,000 RIAs in the United States, and over 3,000 of them have in excess of $1 billion in assets under management. This tremendous growth reflects the fact that an increasing number of investors are choosing RIA firms instead of traditional Broker-dealers for their investment and wealth management needs.
