INVESTIGATION ALERT: The Schall Law Firm Announces it is Investigating Claims Against Provident Financial Services, Inc. and Encourages Investors with Losses to Contact the Firm

January 9, 2020 GMT

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 8, 2020--

The Schall Law Firm, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces that it is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Provident Financial Services, Inc. (“Provident” or “the Company”) (NYSE: PFS ) for violations of the securities laws.

The investigation focuses on whether the Company issued false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose information pertinent to investors. The emails of certain Provident executives became public as part of a December 2019 lawsuit. The emails reveal that the Company and its executives were aware of fraudulent activity related to at least one of the Company’s multiple failed loans over the past few years. CEO Christopher Martin as well as other executives ignored multiple red flags in such cases, including extending a $17 million loan to Lotus Exim International.
