Entwistle & Cappucci LLP, Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP Announce Proposed Settlement of Claims Against JPMorgan

NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Co-Lead Counsel for the Class of BLMIS/Madoff customers have announced a settlement ("Class Action Settlement") of all potential claims against JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. and its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates ("JPMorgan").  The proposed Class Action Settlement will be contemporaneously presented by motions for approval to both United States District Court Judge McMahon and to Bankruptcy Court Judge Lifland.

The settlement of this Class Action is one part of a multi-part resolution of Madoff-related litigation against JPMorgan involving simultaneous, separately negotiated settlements, which include the Class Action Settlement in the amount of $218 million, the SIPA Trustee's Avoidance Action settlement in the amount of $325 million, and a resolution with the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York that includes a civil forfeiture in the amount of $1.7 billion.  The payments by JPMorgan in connection with these agreements will total $2.243 billion and will benefit victims of Madoff's Ponzi scheme.

Co-Lead Counsel for the customers, Andrew Entwistle of Entwistle & Cappucci LLP and Reed Kathrein of Hagens Berman, were especially pleased with the settlement.  Attorney Entwistle observed that: "It is particularly appropriate that shortly after the 5th anniversary of Madoff's arrest these settlements with JPMorgan will result in such substantial recoveries for Madoff victims."  Entwistle also observed that, "In negotiating the Class Action Settlement, Class Counsel's singular goal was to maximize the recoveries of customer-victims of Madoff's fraud.  In our view, this goal has been achieved in spectacular fashion." 

Attorney Kathrein observed: "This settlement reflects the cooperative efforts of our team and the Trustee and represents a favorable and economically sound resolution to what would otherwise have been a costly and protracted legal battle."
