COSGROVE LAW, LLC TAKES ON FISHER INVESTMENTS
Cosgrove Law, LLC has locked horns with nationally known investment adviser Fisher Investments, Inc. on behalf of one of its clients. The matter is currently being litigated in the JAMS arbitration forum. Cosgrove Law, LLC has brought claims alleging, among other things, that Fisher Investments failed to satisfy its fiduciary duty to its clients by funneling their clients in to inappropriately aggressive portfolios comprised almost entirely of equities. Needless to say, these portfolios got destroyed by excess market exposure in 2008. Cosgrove Law, LLC has also asserted claims for unlawful merchandising, unregistered investment advice, negligent representations and an unlawfully fraudulent investment advice scheme. Fisher Investments Inc' CEO is best-selling author and Forbes columnist Ken Fisher. Mr. Fisher was recently deposed by Mr. Cosgrove in San Francisco. The case should go to hearing or trial in the first half of 2010. Stay tuned.
