How Your Company Can Benefit From a Litigation Attorney
A securities and investment attorney can provide invaluable assistance to a business facing litigation. Not only can they provide help with navigating the legal system, but they will also investigate and review evidence to evaluate the merits of a claim and determine the best strategy for resolving the dispute. Companies without a solid defense against securities and investment claims could find themselves paying out massive damages. A litigation lawyer can provide sound advice on protecting the company’s rights and interests and will aggressively fight for them in court if necessary. However, the majority of claims settle with an attorney’s help, saving companies a great deal of time, money, and stress.
Common Securities Litigation and Investment Matters
Securities and investment litigation cases can arise due to a wide range of factors, such as:
- Securities fraud: The intentional misrepresentation or omission of material information related to securities to deceive investors.
- Insider trading: When securities are traded based on non-public information, lending an unfair advantage over other investors.
- Ponzi schemes: Fraudulent investment schemes in which returns are paid to earlier investors using the investments of newer investors.
- Breach of fiduciary duty: When an individual or entity responsible for managing investments fails to act in the best interests of their clients or investors.
- Market manipulation: An attempt to artificially influence the price or volume of securities through deceptive or illegal means.
- False or misleading statements: This involves making false or misleading statements related to securities to deceive investors.
- Securities class actions: Lawsuits brought by a group of investors who suffered losses due to alleged securities law violations.
- SEC investigations: The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigates alleged violations of securities laws and may take legal action against individuals or companies that violate those laws.
- FINRA arbitration: The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) provides a forum for investors to resolve disputes with their brokers or brokerage firms through arbitration.
Each case will require an internal investigation and will likely be resolved in arbitration proceedings.
