Experienced Securities Fraud Attorneys
Investors place a great deal of trust and confidence in secondary traders like investment brokers and dealers. These individuals are expected to responsibly handle investments for the benefit of their clients.
Historically, however, the investment market has been easily manipulated by the few brokers, dealers and corporate insiders who take advantage of investors for personal gain. They may use insider knowledge to buy or sell stocks that skew the market in their favor, but rob their clients in the end.

The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Lays The Groundwork For Your Rights As An Investor
Fortunately, investors are protected under the law. The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 created the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which regulates financial markets and market participants to help prevent issues of:
- Broker misconduct or negligence
- Failure to disclose important information about investments
- Misrepresentation of information about investments
- Brokerage firms that fail to supervise or intervene when a broker is mishandling investments
- Fraudulent activity (like stock manipulation) by officers and directors of publicly traded companies
As seasoned litigators, our team has a history of success in complex lawsuits against tough opponents, including companies with vast legal and financial resources. We firmly believe that investors drive business and economic success for all of us.
