First Class Action Lawsuit Filed on Behalf of GPB Investors
Lawsuit Follows Reports of Auditor Resignations and Raids by Regulators
Girard Sharp LLP and Gibbs Law Group LLP have filed a class action lawsuit in federal court in New York on behalf of certain GPB investors. The lawsuit seeks, among other things, to require GPB to provide accurate financial statements to investors. GPB and certain of its executives have been accused of accounting irregularities and other improprieties in their operations. GPB investors interested in joining the GPB class action lawsuit are encouraged to contact us.
GPB has reportedly raised more than $1.8 billion in investor funds across its various private placement offerings. In 2018, GPB announced that it was suspending redemptions to focus on accounting and financial reporting issues. GPB later announced that its auditor resigned “due to perceived risks . . . that fell outside of their internal risk tolerance parameters.” More recently, in February 2019, GPB informed investors that authorities raided its New York offices unannounced to collect files. According to media reports, regulators and legal authorities, including the FBI, SEC, and FINRA, have launched investigations into GPB’s operations.
“By bringing this lawsuit requiring GPB to immediately produce the financial statements they promised investors, our clients are giving GPB one last chance to come clean before they sue for more comprehensive relief,” said Daniel Girard of Girard Sharp.
“Investors deserve to have complete, truthful information about what is happening with their money; anything less than that is unacceptable,” said David Stein of Gibbs Law Group.
