The move to Hagens Berman UK bolsters the firm’s global presence and bench of heavy-hitting litigators as it builds on the decades-long reputation of Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP as a tenacious and dedicated law firm representing the collective rights of individuals against large entities that have committed fraud, negligence and other forms of wrongdoing.
The Future of Large-Scale Litigation
Prior to joining Hagens Berman UK, Jeremy served as chief investment officer of Innsworth Advisors and as senior investment manager at Omni Bridgeway where he was instrumental in funding large-scale litigation matters throughout the EMEA region.
