David Tamman Claims He Was Made A Scapegoat In SEC Probe
David Tamman, a former partner at Nixon Peabody, had been wedged in an investigation carried out by Securities and Exchange Commission for allegedly tricking securities of a former client. Tamman claimed that he was made a scapegoat in the matter and most of his $1.5 million book of business was taken from under him by Nixon. For this, he sued his ex-partner firm this week. According to the complaint, Tamman said that he has been pushed into this and thus he resigned on October 22, 2009, whereas the firm says it terminated him after learning that he was under SEC investigation. Tamman is being represented by Stanton Phillips and James Wohl, both with their own law offices in Los Angeles.
