Tax Shelter Fraud Recovery Against Bank

In May, Joe Cotchett and Nancy Fineman along with co-counsel Jennifer Jonak settled for a confidential sum on a tax shelter case against HVB bank. This settlement is the latest in a number of tax shelter settlements that CPM reached on behalf of its clients with accounting firms, lawyers and others, who falsely advised their clients that the clients were making investments which had legitimate tax benefits while in fact the defendants knew that the investments would never pass IRS scrutiny.
