Review Hugh Berkson

About Me

After gaining extensive trial experience in both business and personal injury litigation, Hugh decided in 2000 to join Tony Hartman and Jay Salamon in the representation of injured investors. He tries and arbitrates investment cases and also puts his finance background to good use by performing much of our technical analysis. Hugh recently was elected to his first term as a member of the Board of Directors of the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association (PIABA), an international legal association composed of practitioners who represent investors in disputes with the securities industry. He regularly participates as both a moderator and panelist at PIABA’s national meetings and seminars and also has been a panelist at the annual nationally simulcasted PLI Securities Arbitration Program in New York City.
