Fletcher Van Gilder LLP has extensive experience in the area of securities litigation. The firm handles a wide range of cases on behalf of investors who have been the victims of violations of the Indiana Securities Act. Our lawyers have also handled claims under federal securities laws, as well as the securities laws of several other states.
The law provides protections for individuals who purchase investment products in violation of the securities laws. However, in many situations the parties involved in investment transactions are unaware that they must comply with requirements of these laws. Furthermore, even if a seller is aware of the securities laws, they often fail to do everything they need to do to comply with the law.
Our securities litigators have helped individuals recover their investments involving a variety of transactions, including:
- The sale of a business
- Investments in limited partnerships or limited liability companies
- Viatical contracts
- Oil and gas leases
- Time shares
Because we understand the requirements of the securities laws, we are able to identify violations and help clients pursue the recovery of their investment.
In addition to pursuing securities claims in state and federal courts, Fletcher Van Gilder also prosecutes claims of professional negligence against stockbrokers. These claims are usually pursued through arbitration proceedings brought under the rules of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
Finally, because of the knowledge and experience we have developed representing investors, we are often called on to defend sellers who are accused of violating the securities laws.
Even experienced investors may experience breaches of trust by financial professionals. The Fletcher Van Gilder LLP team is here to help you discover wrongdoing and pursue all available remedies.
