Multi-Million Dollar Settlement in Nationwide Class Action

Anthony Ostlund achieves multi-million dollar settlement on behalf of investor clients

This was hard-fought litigation against two of the largest, most well-funded New York defense law firms.  There were many obstacles to resolution, but we were persistent in our pursuit of the case.  It was very satisfying to obtain this result for our deserving clients. --Vince Louwagie, Attorney for client

Client Issue

These lawsuits arose out of a limited partnership in which plaintiffs invested.  The limited partnership, known as Paco Development Partners II ("PDP II"), was sold by means of a Private Placement Memorandum ("PPM").  PDP II formed in 1986 to engage in the research and development of transdermal and ophthalmic pharmaceutical products.

The Anthony Ostlund Approach

Anthony Ostlund commenced a class action and derivative actions in New Jersey State Court and in U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey for violation of securities laws and for an accounting on behalf of our investor clients.

Results Achieved

After more than 25 party, non-party, and expert depositions were taken and numerous dispositive and non-dispositive motions were brought, a nationwide class was certified and a multi-million dollar settlement obtained on behalf of the class.
