RAY D. SULENTIC prosecutes complex class actions for GPM. He enjoys advocating for investors because he used to be one. Before law school, Mr. Sulentic worked on Wall Street for roughly a decade—on both the buy-side, and the sell-side. His experience includes working as a former Director of Investments for a private equity fund; a special situations analyst for a $10.0 billion multi-asset class hedge fund; and as a sell-side equity and commodity analyst for Bear Stearns & Co. Inc. While at Bear Stearns, Mr. Sulentic’s investment analysis was featured in Barron’s.
Since leaving the investment world, Mr. Sulentic received his early legal training from one of the largest law firms in the world, where he defended multinational corporations in securities suits and government investigations.
While in law school, Mr. Sulentic authored several seminar papers on securities law topics including on: whether SLUSA conferred exclusive jurisdiction to federal courts deciding cases under the Securities Act of 1933; how to overcome a corporation’s unilaterally adopted bylaw amendment purporting to confer exclusive forum in Delaware; and on the proliferation of appraisal arbitrage actions and whether public policy supports the Delaware Court of Chancery’s role as an arbiter of market value.
He holds a B.S.M. in Finance from Tulane University; an M.B.A. with a concentration in Finance from Georgetown University; and a J.D. from the UCLA School of Law. The synergy of his finance and legal education and experience makes him well-suited for disputes related to complex accounting frauds, market manipulation matters, valuation disputes, and damages.
