NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of State Street Corporation ("State Street" or the "Company") (NYSE: STT) concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.
On January 18, 2017, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that State Street had entered a deferred prosecution agreement and agreed to pay a $32.3 million criminal penalty to resolve charges relating to a scheme to defraud clients. The Company will pay the same amount to settle a civil action filed by the SEC.
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.
