Blum & Silver, LLP Gives Notice to All UBS Clients Who Purchased Stocks, Structured Notes, Principal Protected Notes and Preferred Shares Issued by Financial Services Companies

Coral Springs, Florida, UNITED STATES


BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 22, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities law firms Blum & Silver, LLP (www.stockattorneys.com) and Sallah & Cox, LLC (http://www.sallahcox.com) announce that they have been retained to represent investors who suffered losses at UBS as a result of over-concentration in financial services companies. The securities at issue include, but are not limited to, common stock, structured notes, and preferred shares issued by Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, Washington Mutual, Fannie Mae and several others.

Securities issued by banks, brokerage firms, and other financial services companies were typically recommended as safe investments. However, when brokerage firms concentrate any portfolio on a single sector, clients may suffer extraordinary losses as a result. Blum & Silver, LLP and Sallah & Cox, LLC are pursuing arbitration claims before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") on behalf of aggrieved investors, including claims of misrepresentation, omissions of material facts, unsuitability, and negligence.

We believe investors will achieve better results on their claims through individual arbitration claims rather than through the class action process.

For additional information or to further discuss these matters, investors should contact either:
