Losses on an Investment in Tezos? Options for Recovery

April 2018-New York

Arthur R. Meunier (a/k/a Robert Breitman, a/k/a Robert Meunier-Breitman) entered into a Letter of Acceptance Waiver and Consent (AWC) with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) agreeing to a two year suspension and a fine of $20,000, to resolve allegations that his involvement in an outside business activity violated firm and industry rules.

According to the FINRA AWC, Breitman, who used the pseudonym L.M. Goodman to conceal his identity,  began developing Tezos, a blockchain technology and network originally intended for use in connection with over the counter securities transactions. Breitman, a french citizen,  did not tell his employer Morgan Stanley about his involvement in Tezos, as required by firm rules and he made false statements on firm compliance questionnaires.

Breitman created and distributed a business plan for Tezos to prospective investors that failed to provide a balanced presentation and sound basis for evaluating an investment in Tezos.

Tezos raised $232 million earlier this year through an initial coin offering but has since been embroiled in controversy and has yet to issue any tokens to contributors, according to press reports.

According to FINRA records, Breitman was employed by Morgan Stanley from 9/2013-4/2016.

If you invested in Tezos on the recommendation of a registered broker, you may be able to recover damages through FINRA arbitration. Call for a no charge consultation to discuss your options.
