Nadel Receiver Leaves Fowler White Boggs Along With at Least 9 Others

The court-appointed receiver trying to recover money for investors with alleged Ponzi schemer Arthur Nadel is forming a new law firm.

The receiver, Burton Wiand, is a partner at Fowler White Boggs in Tampa. He is leaving the law firm with at least nine other lawyers to form Wiand Guerra King, the Tampa Tribune reports.

Last year Fowler White Boggs lost about 60 lawyers who joined partner Bob Banker when he left to form his own law firm, according to the story.

Fowler White CEO Rhea Law told the Tampa Tribune that the split is amicable and Wiand wanted to form a boutique securities firm that also handles court receiverships.
