Former Attorney General of Louisiana, Charles C. Foti, Jr., Esq., a partner at the law firm of Kahn Swick & Foti, LLC (KSF), announces that KSF has commenced an investigation into The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. (NYSE: GS).
An investigation by the U.S. Justice Department dating back to at least 2016 into the Companys role as the primary bond underwriter in a multibillion-dollar fraud and money-laundering scheme involving a Malaysian government fund, 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) recently culminated with the Companys former Southeast Asia Chairman, Tim Leissner, pleading guilty to money laundering conspiracy and Foreign Corrupt Practices Act charges committed as an employee and agent of Goldman Sachs. Indictments were also unsealed against a former managing director of the Company, Roger Ng, and Malaysian financier Low Taek Jho, relating to the probe.
Abu Dhabi sovereign funds that guaranteed $3.5B in bonds to 1MDB have sued the Company for its role in the scheme and Malaysian officials have demanded reparations from Goldman exceeding the $600M in fees it received from the scheme. Recently, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America downgraded the Companys stock, which presently ranks as the worst performing stock in the Dow Jones Industrial Average this year.
KSFs investigation is focusing on whether Goldmans officers and/or directors breached their fiduciary duties to Goldmans shareholders or otherwise violated state or federal laws.
