NEW YORK, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of PJT Partners, Inc. ("PJT" or the "Company") (NYSE: PJT), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.
PJT provides fund placement and secondary advisory services through a business line called Park Hill Group. On March 28, 2016, a managing partner of Park Hill Group, Andrew W.W. Caspersen, was arrested on charges of securities and wire fraud for allegedly conning investors out of over $95 million since July 2015.
On April 8, 2016, the Company issued a statement stating that between 2014 and March of 2016, Mr. Caspersen "conducted a number of unauthorized and unlawful transactions."
Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
