For the past 5 years, John Malesovas has focused a large part of his practice on representing small business owners and professionals who were induced to set up 419 and 412i plans as a purported means of saving for retirement on a tax advantaged basis. These individuals later learned that all of their money was used to purchase life insurance that paid significant commissions to the salesmen and that as a result, a substantial part of their investment was lost. And to add insult to injury, many of these individuals were audited by the IRS and the purported tax advantages of the investment were disallowed and substantial penalties were imposed by the IRS. John Malesovas has represented a number of these individuals as lead counsel in a number of successful lawsuits filed against insurance companies, insurance agents, plan trustees, plan administrators, banks, CPAs and attorneys who were involved in promoting these 412i and 419 plans.
