Several investors who lost about $4.5 million combined in the Ponzi scheme Florida fund manager Arthur Nadel allegedly ran have sued Holland & Knight, claiming the offering documents the firm helped Nadel prepare failed to mention several key facts — including that Nadel had been disbarred for fraud, according to the complaint.

Federal authorities have since charged Nadel with using those funds to orchestrate a $360 million Ponzi scheme, Bloomberg says.
