Investor Fraud Lawsuits Lawyer
When investment fraud occurs, investors can sustain substantial losses, yet may not even realize they are a victim. Investments always come with a risk. When investments do not produce the results expected, it is often just considered a bad choice by investors. However, many securities and investments that lose money are caused by fraudulent practices, gaining money for insiders within the companies. When these fraudulent practices are revealed, an investment fraud class action claim can recover damages for investors.
Shareholder, investment and security fraud comes in many forms. Securities fraud can involve accounting fraud where entities hide debt or expenses or use creative accounting to improve the revenue numbers. It can also include insider trading, self-dealing, backdating and other changes to stock options. Mergers and acquisitions can interfere with shareholder investments when insiders breach fiduciary duties to benefit their own interests over the shareholders. These types of fraud can be very complicated and difficult to uncover. However, when evidence is found, it can work in favor of investors who take part in a class action lawsuit.
Securities Fraud Class Action Claims
Losses from investments due to fraudulent or deceptive business practices can be recovered through litigation. However, the costs of the extensive investigation that is needed to prove investment fraud can be prohibitive for a single investor to pursue a case. Class action claims offer an opportunity for many investors affected by the same fraudulent scheme to pursue damages together, limiting the cost of litigation and improving the efficiency of the judicial process.
