The investigation by a law firm for current long term investors in NASDAQ:EFSC stocks follows a lawsuit against Enterprise Financial Services Corp filed earlier by shareholders who purchased Enterprise Financial Services Corp. (NASDAQ:EFSC) shares only between April 20, 2010 and January 25, 2012.

The investigation on behalf of current long term investors in Enterprise Financial Services Corp.
