11/5/2009

TAMPA, FL, November 5, 2009—The law firm of Wiand Guerra King PL today announced its formation and the opening of its office at 3000 Bayport Drive, Suite 600, Tampa, FL 33607. The firm’s founding partners, Burt Wiand, George Guerra, Peter King, Kacy Donlon, Gianluca Morello, Elaine Rice, and Michael Lamont, will continue to represent clients in connection with complex business matters. A major focus of the firm’s practice will be financial services and securities and other investment-related litigation. Wiand, the firm’s chairman and a former senior official with the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, said the firm will also represent clients in connection with criminal and regulatory investigations and proceedings, including those brought by the SEC, DOJ, FTC, FINRA, and state agencies, involving a broad range of business and investment matters. Wiand, who since early this year has served as the court-appointed receiver in the SEC’s Arthur Nadel $400 million Ponzi scheme fraud case, noted, “For many years, this group has practiced together in one form or another. We have represented members of the financial services industry in courts and other tribunals throughout the country and are one of the most experienced groups of lawyers handling complex business and investment matters in the southeastern United States. Although we have formed a new firm, we have over a hundred years of combined experience, and that experience is especially valuable as we assist clients that face unprecedented business, legal, and regulatory challenges created by the current economic and governmental environment.” Wiand Guerra King lawyers have practiced at some of the nation’s most respected firms, and they provide top quality representation to businesses and individuals throughout the United States.
