Richard Schiffrin Joins Grant & Eisenhofer

Richard S. Schiffrin has joined law firm Grant & Eisenhofer as of counsel. Schiffrin founded his own firm in 1987, which ultimately grew into 55-attorney law firm Schiffrin Barroway Topaz & Kessler.  Mr. Schiffrin announced his retirement from Schiffrin Barroway last February, but decided to return to practice.

In an announcement today by Grant & Eisenhofer, Mr. Schiffrin stated: “I wasn’t actively thinking of taking up practice again so soon – especially having accomplished everything I thought I wanted to after 20 wonderful years with my prior firm, but I was intrigued by the chance to align directly with Jay [Eisenhofer] and Stuart Grant in representing investors in a new wave of cutting-edge cases.”

He added that “the financial crisis has exposed a number of flagrant violations of trust by financial institutions and asset managers, as well as egregious breaches of securities and other federal laws.  I have to admit it was hard to be observing these developments from the sidelines. I’m excited at the prospect of returning to active litigation with Jay and his firm.”
