Do I Have a Valid Securities Fraud Case?
This is a difficult question to answer without a comprehensive review of your situation, including the fraudulent actions in question and your losses.
These types of cases are often filed when a broker or financial institution breaches its fiduciary duty to customers, which could include providing false information about a stock or other investment.
Our Lake Havasu City securities litigation lawyers are prepared to take on many types of securities litigation cases, including, but not limited to:
Investors could be victims of many types of fraud, from Ponzi schemes to insider trading, market manipulation, pyramid schemes, promising risk-free investments, fraudulent promissory notes or advance fee fraud.
Backdating of Stock Options
Financial institutions must tell investors when they change the grant date on a stock option to make a fast profit. It is also illegal to improperly document changing a grant date.
This involves excessive trading of stocks so brokers can generate commissions. Customers are also charged more fees, reducing the amount of money they make on an investment.
Restatement of Earnings
Brokers or financial institutions may make amendments to financial statements, but they cannot amend them to provide false or misleading information to customers.
Failure to Meet Estimates
Sometimes an investment fails to perform as the institution or broker predicted it would because of unexpected events that were not accurately forecasted.
There are many examples of negligent actions on the part of a broker that could result in losses for his or her clients. For example, the broker may fail to make investments that are reasonably appropriate or misrepresent the safety of an investment.
Failure to Supervise
Sometimes professionals who are investing money are not properly trained or supervised when they are investing money. This could result in significant financial losses for investors and potential securities violations.
Brokers and financial institutions cannot try to manipulate future market price movements by either buying or selling.
Shareholders can appoint someone else to vote on their behalf, but they cannot abuse this privilege.
Trading After the Market Closed
Once the market closes, trading is illegal. However, that does not stop some brokers from recording trades as if they happened before the market closed for the day.
If you have any reason to believe you suffered investment losses because of any type of securities fraud, you should strongly consider discussing the situation with one of our experienced Lake Havasu City securities fraud lawyers.
