Jacob (Jake) H. Zamansky is an American securities arbitration attorney.


Zamansky worked for the Federal Trade Commission as a federal prosecutor, and at the firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.[1][2] In June 2001, Zamansky won a securities arbitration case against Wall Street firm Merrill Lynch and stock analyst Henry Blodget and received a $400,000 settlement.[3][4][5][6]

In late 2006, Zamansky filed a case against a Long Island-based financial adviser alleging the defendant's clients were the victims of predatory lending.[7][8] Zamansky has represented securities professionals involved in employment disputes[9] and been involved in Termination Form U-5 defamation cases.[10] Zamansky has opposed the court ruling, (Rosenberg v. Metlife) which provides brokerage firm’s with “absolute privilege” regarding what they write on a Form U-5.[11]
