Securities Litigation Cases Phillips Law Group Handles
At Phillips Law Group, we are prepared to handle many different types of securities litigation cases. This commonly includes:
A broker may use market manipulation to convince a customer to invest based off of misguided or false information, causing a customer to invest more than its actual value. The broker typically cashes out on his or her shares for profit.
Investment fraud involves a scheme or deception about an investment that affects a particular company or investor. This type of investment fraud, such as Pyramid or Ponzi schemes, often aim to persuade certain target groups, such as religious groups, to take on investments that are generally too good to be true.
Sometimes a financial institution or broker uses inside information that is generally not known by the public for their own personal benefit. Examples of this type of activity, called insider trading, includes exchanging securities after discovering confidential information about a company’s financial position.
The practice of churning is when a broker excessively trades or buys investments on behalf of an investor for his or her own profitable growth. In this type of fraudulent activity, an investor may lose a great amount of money because of the unexpected timing of trades.
When an investor seeks out advice about a potential investment, the broker is expected to provide beneficial information to help the investor make a gainful profit from the investment. If a broker purposely deceives the investor for his or her own personal gain, the victim may be eligible to pursue a claim.
Breach of Fiduciary Duties
Financial institutions and brokers have a legal obligation, or fiduciary duty, to investors. This means that they are expected to act in good faith with fair dealing and full disclosure. Examples of a fiduciary breach may include, the misuse of an influential position, misappropriation of funds, failing to disclose certain information and neglect of responsibilities.
Failure to Supervise
A brokerage firm could be liable for financial losses if they fail to properly oversee their brokers and any actions they do that are not in compliance with state or federal security laws.
