Page Perry’s founding member, J. Boyd Page, passed away on June 17, 2013. Boyd successfully handled some of the largest fraud cases in securities arbitration history, recovered over $750 million for investors who were victims of securities abuse, and actively changed the investment landscape to help prevent fraud.

Professor Seth Lipner, who, along with Boyd and others, co-founded PIABA (the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association), wrote on the very day of Boyd’s death that “as many of us can attest, and as one friend already wrote me, he changed my life, and that of so many others. It is not an overstatement to say that the world is a safer place for investors because of the work he did and the dedication he had.”

J. Boyd Page is widely recognized as one of the leading investor attorneys in the country. During his career he has handled some of the largest investment fraud cases filed in courts and arbitration forums. He has represented injured investors from virtually every state in the country. He has worked for thousands of securities abuse victims and assisted them in recovering over $750 million. He has assisted investors in recovering over $1 million on more than 45 separate occasions, including more than 30 different occasions since January 2005. Of course, those past successes do not guarantee similar results under different factual and legal circumstances.

Blair, UBS, Citigroup, Charles Schwab, Morgan Keegan, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, PNC, and SunTrust Securities, among others.
