Law Offices of Kramer and Kaslow: New York Bank Investigation Could Leave Banks Facing Charges

Calabasas, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2011

The Law Offices of Kramer and Kaslow is weighing in on a new report from the New York Times that claims that the New York attorney general is investigating large banks for alleged wrongdoing. According to the May 16 New York Times article, The New York attorney general has requested information and documents in recent weeks from three major Wall Street banks about their mortgage securities operations during the credit boom, indicating the existence of a new investigation into practices that contributed to billions in mortgage losses.

Recently elected New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman declined to comment but according to people briefed on the matter who were not authorized to speak publicly, Eric T. Schneidermans office have also requested meetings with representatives from Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.

The article also spoke with Daniel C. Richman, a professor of law at Columbia. Part of what prosecutors have the advantage of doing right now, here as elsewhere, is watching the civil suits play out as different parties fight over who bears the loss, said Richman. Thats a very productive source of information.

Noted attorney Philip Kramer, senior partner at the law firm of Kramer & Kaslow whose consolidated litigation plaintiffs have been suing banks for their foreclosure practices agrees with Richman, A lot of wrongdoing has been uncovered in civil cases. What is particularly interesting about the New York Attorney Generals approach is that they seem to have picked up on some of the issues we have used in our suits: fraud and greed in the securitization process being key elements.
