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. Hugh now heads the investors' rights litigation group at McCarthy, Lebit, Crystal & LIffman Co., LPA. He tries and arbitrates investment cases across Ohio and the entire United States. Hugh's finance background is helpful as it allows him to perform much of our techincal analysis of clients' cases.
Hugh is a member of the Board of Directors of the Public Investors Advocate Bar Association (PIABA), an international legal association composed of practitioners who represent investors in disputes with the securities industry. He is a past President of PIABA, and is Executive Vice President-Elect for the association.
Hugh 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.
