We have helped thousands of investors across the country and around the world in cases arising out of investment fraud, Ponzi schemes, or misconduct by their investment advisors or the corporations in which they invested.
We focus on identifying those parties that are both liable and have the financial ability to compensate investors. Our goal is to put money back into our clients’ pockets, not just get an award that acknowledges our clients are entitled to compensation.
We tailor our approach to each individual client’s needs. We have experience prosecuting our clients’ cases through arbitrations, class actions, or derivative actions, in federal court, state court, or FINRA arbitration. Each case is, of course, different, and our prior successes are not a guarantee of success in any future case.
Collectively, we have offices in New York, California, Missouri, Louisiana, Ohio, and South Carolina. We have represented investors nationwide. Whenever required, we work with local co-counsel, at no additional cost to the client.
We take most cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we only earn our legal fees when we recover money for our clients. In addition, we usually advance the case expenses ourselves and recoup those out of the amounts we recover. We typically recoup the case costs before applying the contingency percentage. A few jurisdictions require the client to be responsible for case costs.
We provide prospective clients with an advance copy of the retainer agreement that spells out the terms of representation, give them time to review it, and answer any questions they may have.
We have represented thousands of victims of investment fraud against the advisors and financial institutions that failed to discharge their duties to protect the investing public. If you invested in FIP and are no longer receiving your monthly payments, it is important to take action.
