We represent individual and institutional investors that lost money because of investment fraud.
Investment fraud takes many forms, from sophisticated investment products that few people understand to outright theft and deceit. We have represented investors who lost money in fraudulent investment schemes such as:
- promissory notes;
- real estate investments and REITs;
- private placements;
- alternative investments;
- oil-and-gas programs;
- hedge funds;
- forex programs;
- offshore asset protection programs;
- proprietary trading algorithm programs;
- commodity trading programs;
- sale-leaseback arrangements such as timeshares;
In our experience, most fraudulent investment schemes have one thing in common: they are crimes of confidence.
Investors are usually persuaded to invest their money because they trust either the professional or the financial institution that recommended the investment to them. Often times such institutions are charged with protecting the investing public, but fail to do so.
Contact us and tell us about your case
We have represented thousands of victims of investment fraud, against financial institutions that failed to discharge their duties and protect the investing public. Each case is different and our past successes are not indicative of future results; we will be glad to review your case and advise you as to your options, at no charge.
We generally represent investors on a “contingency fee” basis, meaning we do not charge any legal fees unless and until we recover money for you. Our general practice is to advance the case costs on the client’s behalf and recoup them out of (and up to) the amounts recovered. A few jurisdictions (states) require the client to be responsible for the case costs; whenever that is the case we explain to the client what those costs entail.
If you believe you lost money because of investment fraud, it is important to take action. You may call at (585) 310-5140, email us, or contact us by using the “Contact” form on this page, and tell us about your case. There is no charge for us to evaluate your case.
