Securities And Investment Fraud: Protecting Investors
Laws protect investors from illegal actions by corporations that sell stocks, stockbrokers and other financial entities. Illegal activities include material representations and omissions. Fraudulent transactions, including stock option backdating, are also not allowable. Ponzi schemes sometimes cause large numbers of investors to lose money in a short time through deceitful accounting and other irregularities.
Investors who have been cheated may recover their losses through legal remedies, including the following:
- Class action lawsuits
- Direct claims by individual investors against sellers or brokers
- Derivative actions
Edelson Lechtzin LLP has built a strong reputation for successful representation of high net worth investors who have experienced significant losses through securities law violations. Our clients come to us from throughout the United States.
Aggressive Securities And Investment Fraud Representation
Warning signs of securities and investment fraud include illegal sharing of insider information and sudden drops in stock values. Attorneys at our firm investigate and prosecute claims against entities that have defrauded our clients. When we uncover evidence of liability and wrongdoing, we craft strategies for recovering suitable damages for our investor clients.
When we accept a securities fraud or investment fraud case or initiate a class action, we do so on a contingency basis. In other words, if we take your case, you will not owe us attorney fees initially. Our remuneration will be a percentage of the recovery that we obtain on your behalf.
