Providing Value to Investors
Securities and investment fraud can occur as the result of material misrepresentations and omissions, fraudulent transactions, accounting irregularities, account churning, lack of suitability of investments, stock option backdating and massive Ponzi schemes such as the Madoff case. Investors who are saving hard earned money for retirement can be wiped out by the greed of individual stockbrokers or corporations
Securities fraud also occurs when corporate insiders make misleading statements to investors or fail to disclose material information that would affect an investor’s decision to buy or sell securities. Congress has enacted a number of laws to protect investors from fraud, most notably the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.
When a company violates these laws, victims can file a lawsuit to recover compensation for any resulting financial losses. These cases can be filed as class actions, where one investor or a small group of investors files a lawsuit on behalf of themselves and all other shareholders who have been harmed by the securities law violations.
