Securities Litigation Cases
Securities litigation cases arise from instances of securities fraud. This type of fraud occurs when brokers or corporate insiders provide misleading or false information to investors regarding their money. Oftentimes, the broker or corporation fails to disclose information that would directly influence an investor’s decision to buy or sell stocks, bonds or mutual funds.
There are numerous types of securities litigation cases that can be filed in a court of law. Each case is dependent upon several different factors, including instances of:
Insider trading - This type of fraud occurs when an investor or corporate insider uses information that is not available to other investors to gain an unfair advantage when buying or selling a company's securities. “Tipping off” is another example of this type of fraud and occurs when a corporate insider provides investment strategies to a select group of individuals and not to other investors or the general public.
Market manipulation - When investment firms manipulate funds so a specific security can flourish in the over-the-counter-market, affected investors often face an unfair decline in financial worth and can likely file a securities litigation case.
Earnings mismanagement - Company officers are obligated to act in the best interest of the shareholders. When they fail to do so, shareholders can file a specific type of securities litigation case that does not seek monetary compensation, but rather, seeks to impose management changes to protect the shareholder’s long-term financial interest in the company.
Conflict of interest - This type of fraud occurs when a company’s executives have not exercised good business judgment or properly managed the corporation, and in doing so, have placed their own financial interests ahead of the financial interests of the shareholder. If either of these duties are breached and corporate assets are squandered, our attorneys can assist shareholders in filing securities litigation cases to stop the financial decline of the company.
Other instances of improper investment practices include late-day trading, market timing fraud, churning and companies that issue misleading information. If you believe a person or corporate entity has unethically mismanaged your funds, the securities litigation attorneys at Phillips Law Group can help you file a lawsuit to prevent further financial losses and to hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions. We can also help you recover your lost funds, plus additional compensation.
