Ponzi schemes and feeder fund activities have dramatically increased securities litigation and arbitration over the past several years. Uninformed investors simply trying to protect and grow their hard earned dollars find themselves as fraud victims due to no fault of their own. Our firm has experience with federal and state securities laws and regulations designed to protect individuals and companies from tortious and illegal acts that have caused investors billions of dollars in damage.
The fact is, entrusting your savings, retirement account, and other investments to a third party like a broker or a financial advisor can carry significant risks. Many of these professionals are more than eager to promise you the moon in order to secure your business, and will often obscure certain truths or expectations in order to further entice you. At Gonzalez Chiscano Angulo & Kasson, we believe that no one should be misled in a way that places their future at risk, and will staunchly fight for you (whether it’s via arbitration or trial) and help ensure that your interests are protected.
Unfortunately, broker and dealer misconduct is more common than many finance professionals care to admit, which can be catastrophic for individuals who have entrusted their investments to a “trusted” expert. Examples of decisions or behavior that can lead to litigation includes:
- Insider trading
- Change/resignation of auditors
- Failure to meet analyst estimates
- Backdating stock options
- IPOs, secondary offerings, and private placements
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Proxy solicitations
At Gonzalez Chiscano Angulo & Kasson, we stand up for the rights of those who have been manipulated or exploited by brokers, dealers, and other professionals who are commonly entrusted with others’ savings and investments.
For all your securities litigation needs, look no further than Gonzalez Chiscano Angulo & Kasson. You can call our office at (210) 569-8500 to schedule an initial consultation.
