About the Lawsuit

PJT and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws. 

On March 28, 2016, it was revealed that PJT's managing director, Andrew Caspersen, was arrested and charged with scheming to defraud investors of more than $95 million. Mr. Caspersen allegedly diverted money from investors' accounts into phony private equity investments in which he lost millions through aggressive options trading with his own account. Later that same day, PJT said in a statement that it has started an internal investigation and is working with federal prosecutors. PJT also stated that it terminated Mr. Caspersen for cause.

On this news, the price of PJT's shares plummeted.
