Frank represents a variety of institutional investors and individuals in disputes involving mergers and acquisitions, securities fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and breach of contract involving asset-backed securities and other complex debt instruments. Frank’s practice has focused in particular on using creative litigation strategies to maximize recoveries for defrauded investors and to maximize value for investors in public companies that have acted contrary to their shareholders’ interests. In pursuing these strategies, Frank regularly practices in the Federal and State courts of New York and New Jersey as well as in the Delaware Court of Chancery.
Frank has also dedicated significant time to pro bono work, primarily assisting low-income tenants in eviction proceedings. For four months in 2011, Frank served as the Alan V. Lowenstein Fellow, representing tenants facing eviction on behalf of Essex Newark Legal Services out of its Newark, New Jersey office. Following that fellowship, Frank has remained active in tenancy matters, assisting in the launch and operation of a clinic providing free legal advice to tenants facing eviction, and providing training to attorneys participating in the clinic.
Prior to his legal career, Frank worked as a sports writer and served as the Vice President/Business Agent of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local B7 in Denver, Colorado.
