Inside Wall Street’s Engine Of Doom And Its Financial Meltdown

In this in-depth interview, Andrew Entwistle, Managing Partner of Entwistle & Cappucci LLP, examines all the avenues of the Bernard Madoff scandal. Joining Andrew to discuss this issue are Wall Street insider and author, Norb Vonnegut, and New York Daily News staff journalist Larry McShane. Entwistle & Cappucci LLP seeks to help investors recover funds invested through various Madoff “feeder funds” established and run by Tremont Group Holdings, Inc. and Tremont Partners, Inc. Tremont’s alleged failures to conduct adequate due diligence of Madoff’s investment operations constitute a potential breach of fiduciary duty and breach of contract. Additionally, the complaint filed by Entwistle & Cappucci LLP asserts claims for unjust enrichment and aiding and abetting Tremont’s fiduciary duty breaches against companies affiliated with Tremont, such as Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company, MassMutual Holding Company, Oppenheimer Acquisition Corp., and OppenheimerFunds, Inc.

Norb Vonnegut is a Wall Street insider, author and former wealth adviser who evaluated investment opportunities for clients. His many columns about the Madoff scandal educated readers about the enormity of Madoff’s crimes and the fallout among investors. A graduate of Harvard College and the Harvard Business School, Norb is also the author of Top Producer, a story about Wall Street hi-jinks gone fatal.

Larry McShane is an acclaimed reporter who has written extensively about the Madoff scandal, providing the public with breaking news and insightful analysis about Madoff’s many criminal acts. A former journalist for the Associated Press, Larry is also the author of Cops Under Fire, a gripping account of police officers who have had to use their weapons in the line of duty.
