Our firm typically represents investors on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we advance the case costs, do not require any money down, and only get paid for the case costs we advanced and for our work if and when we recover money for investors. We do not charge any costs or fees if there is no recovery. A few jurisdictions across the country require that the client always be responsible for case costs.
For international investors, we sometimes require a downpayment for case costs and part of our fees, and offer mixed fee agreements that consist in a reduced fee & costs payable upfront and a reduced contingency fee if and when there is a recovery in the case. We typically offer such arrangements when part or all of the recovery must be collected from defendants located in a different country.
Our firm’s attorneys have helped thousands of investors across the country and around the world seek compensation for their losses arising out of investment fraud, Ponzi schemes, or misconduct by their investment advisors or the companies in which they invested. Of course, each case is different and past results in one case cannot be indicative of results in any future case.
We represent investors nationwide. Whenever required, we work with local co-counsel, at no additional cost to the client.
Our typical approach in a case is to first identify the parties that are likely liable to investors for the fraud – either the perpetrators or their accomplices or enablers. We then investigate whether those entities have the financial ability to compensate investors in case we are able to obtain a judgment against them. Our goal is to put money back into our clients’ pockets, not just obtain a judgment or an award against an uncollectible defendant.
We tailor our approach to each individual client’s needs. We have experience prosecuting our clients’ cases through class actions, arbitrations, or derivative actions, in federal court, state court, or FINRA arbitration.
We provide prospective clients in advance with a copy of the client-lawyer agreement that details the terms of representation. We give prospective clients sufficient time to review the agreement and we answer any questions they may have.
