What can an Investment Law Firm do for you?

Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Investing your hard-earned money with a financial advisor or broker can be daunting, overwhelming and sometimes, downright confusing. Luckily, an investment law firm can provide significant benefits to you when planning your investments and in extreme cases, in recovering any financial losses incurred as a result of fraud or misconduct.

Before you invest . . .

Investment lawyers understand the complexity of investments and the ins and outs of the industry. They have knowledge that you may not be able to get on your own. By consulting an investment law firm, you can gain insight into critical information and insight regarding the investments you are considering. A lawyer can assist you in analyzing the financial health of companies to determine if they are the right fit for your portfolio and goals. Additionally, an investment lawyer can educate you on common signs of investment fraud or misconduct.

After you invest . . .

When you’ve trusted a broker or financial advisor to make sound decisions on your behalf, it can be extremely unsettling to suspect that you may have been given bad advice or worse, fallen victim to a scam. If you do fear wrongdoing, an investment law firm can use their industry knowledge, tools and resources to help you uncover instances of fraud or misconduct. In the event that you have been the victim of investment fraud, they will guide you in your recovery efforts. Lawyers can help you to determine exactly what your losses are (which can be difficult depending on your investments), advise you on whether or not you should file a complaint and can represent you in any litigation that arises as a result of your investments. Additionally, a lawyer can assist you in suing your broker or their brokerage firm for damages when applicable.
