Juan Monteverde, based in New York City, fights for shareholders’ rights. As the managing partner and founder of Monteverde & Associates PC, he often works for investors and consumers who’ve been misled by corporate fraud or misleading claims and advertising. His firm has also been instrumental in maximizing shareholder value in an array of mergers and acquisitions (m&a).
As a New York Metro Rising Star in Securities Litigation, Mr. Monteverde is acknowledged by both Super Lawyers and Martindale-Hubbell as a top-ranked attorney in his area of expertise.
In a recent interview, he shared details and insights about his life’s purpose and career.
Mr. Monteverde first worked for another firm’s m&a department. After rising to the level of partner there, he decided to found his own law firm to protect shareholders’ rights, especially in high-stakes mergers & acquisitions activities.
His practice grew as the result of favorable client rulings and targeted marketing to prospective clients. Instead of charging his clients a hefty retainer upon engagement, Mr. Monteverde sought to obtain favorable shareholder results first. This payment structure, called a “contingency fee,” puts clients’ financial liquidity first. That is, Mr. Monteverde’s clients pay fees only when he obtains a cash settlement. Then, subject to Court approval, he is paid a percentage of the cash settlement fund.
The prioritization of current clients’ needs has often helped Monteverde & Associates to generate new business. Mr. Monteverde publishes a record of case outcomes on the firm’s website and distributes press releases about his shareholders’ rights cases to the public.
When asked about his success, Mr. Monteverde says “work, work and work,” along with energy and experience, are the keys to success He focuses on the importance of personal and firm dedication to completing the many tasks necessary to bring clients’ litigation cases to successful closure.
As a result of precision and focus on his clients’ goals, Monteverde & Associates was named to the “Top 50” Class Action Securities Firms in the United States. He is committed to leading others by example and views mentorship as a richly rewarding experience.
The future is bright for Juan Monteverde and the law firm he built. He remains excited about the expansion of the Exchange Act in m&a cases. He is delighted that Monteverde & Associate protects shareholders’ rights by recovering money they’re owed.
