Raoul Felder is not chopped liver, the famed New York divorce lawyer wants AllianceBernstein to know.
Felder has filed a $5 million lawsuit against the money manager, accusing it of misleading him into investing $750,000 in a hedge fund that subsequently lost him $200,000. According to the Duke of Divorce, he wanted a more conservative investment, but that AllianceBernstein pushed him toward the riskier hedge fund that earned it higher fees and commissions.
The firm put its “greed and self-interest” ahead of Felder’s “very simple” instructions, he said.
“It’s like the owner of a restaurant who tell his waiters to push the chopped liver,” Felder told the New York Daily News.
