Flagstaff Securities Litigation Lawyer | Phillips Law Group
Investors have a reasonable expectation that a broker or financial institution will be honest when providing information to them. Whether it is about the current health of a company or other information that may help a shareholder to make a transaction decision, if that duty is breached, an investor may decide to take legal action to recover compensation for their financial losses.
If you suspect you are the victim of fraudulent or dishonest broker practices, we encourage you to call one of the Flagstaff securities litigation lawyers at Phillips Law Group. We have 27 plus years of experience representing more than 155,000 consumer clients and recovering over $1 billion in compensation.
Our firm offers free consultations and works on a contingency fee basis, so there are no upfront service fees. You only pay us at the end of the legal process if we help you successfully obtain compensation.
Types of Securities Litigation Cases We Handle
There are many ways that securities fraud may occur, but generally, it involves one or more incidents where a broker or financial manager may have purposely misled or exploited the investor. This is legally known as a breach of fiduciary duty.
Some of the most common securities litigation cases our firm is prepared to handle include:
Backdating stock options ”“ Changing the original grant date of a stock option for a fast turnaround on a profit is an illegal practice if it is not disclosed to the investor, or if the modification was not also documented in the company’s financial records.
Broker negligence ”“ This occurs when a broker knowingly fails to provide a shareholder with a reasonable investment or transaction recommendation, thereby unethically increasing the financial risk for a client.
Churning ”“ This is the illegal and unethical practice of broker over-trading to generate a commission. A broker can only do this if he or she has the power to exercise transactions for a client’s account.
Late day trading ”“ Any recording of trades transactions added to a daily net asset value is a violation if it happens after official marketing trading is closed out for the day.
Market timing ”“ A legal practice of mutual fund short-term trading, but potentially a securities violation if investors are deliberately mislead about the specific restrictions or the number of exchanges that occur.
Proxy solicitations ”“ Also legal unless it does not include the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC)-required filings, forms and disclosures to shareholders, the SEC and other appropriate parties.
Earnings restatement ”“ Illegal amendments made to financial statements to purposely deceive potential investors about the financial health of a publicly traded company.
Investment fraud ”“ This involves any kind of market manipulation, Ponzi scheme, insider trading or pyramid schemes.

If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
Phillips Law Group provides a collaborative environment in which both attorneys and staff work together to achieve the best outcome for clients. As an attorney here at PLG, I’m lucky to be surrounded by seasoned attorneys and knowledgeable staff that share my enthusiasm for helping accident victims. The team here at PLG treats clients with respect and empathy while fighting hard to get the results they deserve.
Sophia H. at Phillips Law Group has been an absolute joy to work with -quick, responsive, and professional in every interaction. Her breadth of knowledge, from administration to IT to finance, is nothing short of impressive.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
