Gilman has extensive experience over the last 25 years in recovering funds related to fraudulent Ponzi schemes.
In 1985, Mr. Gilman was appointed by the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, as the Equity Receiver, to marshall and recover funds arising out of the massive Ponzi scheme known as the Intercontinental Commodity Pool Fraud. Mr. Gilman pursued and recovered assets for investors from all responsible parties, including the firm’s auditors. He also worked with the Department of Justice, international authorities in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands to penetrate bank secrecy laws and locate funds to which the investors were entitled.
He also worked with the U.S. Prosecutors to make certain that those who perpetrated the securities fraud were sentenced to jail for their crimes. From 1982 through 1985, Mr. Gilman also represented the Receiver in the massive nationwide Lloyd Carr Ponzi scheme. As part of that representation, he pursued responsible third parties as special counsel for the Department of Justice in Massachusetts Federal Court and in litigation nationwide.
