Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In PJT Partners, Inc. To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in PJT Partners, Inc (“PJT” or the “Company”) (NYSE:PJT) of the June 14, 2016 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of all those who purchased PJT stock or options between November 12, 2015 and March 28, 2016 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Barrett v. PJT Partners Inc. et al, No. 1:16-cv-02841 was filed on April 15, 2016, and has been assigned to Judge Valerie E. Caproni.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose potentially criminal activities by the Company’s managing director

Specifically, on March 28, 2016, news outlets revealed that PJT’smanaging director, Andrew Caspersen, was arrested and charged with defrauding investors of more than $95 million.  Subsequent  reports alleged that Mr. Caspersen took advantage of PJT’s payment process to perpetrate his scheme.

After this news, PJT’s share price fell to a closing price of $23.66 on March 28, 2016—a $2.81 or a 10.6% drop.
