Representing Investors’ Interests Against Large Broker-Dealers
Since our financial market downturn, much has changed with broker-dealers and banks. These changes have led to the creation of some of the largest broker-dealers ever in existence. Unfortunately, these large companies have just as good a chance of harming investors as small broker-dealers do, and they have more resources to fight claims of investment fraud such as a real estate Ponzi scheme, broker-dealer misrepresentation, or other breach of fiduciary duty.
When facing a potential claim of broker misconduct or broker-dealer misrepresentation against a large broker-dealer like Bank of America or Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, you want to ensure you have an experienced, proven securities litigation and arbitration attorney by your side. Our San Francisco lawyers, Jeffrey A. Feldman and Thomas H. Porter, have years of experience recovering millions of dollars for investors in California and throughout the country.
We are not afraid to face these large corporations. Our sophistication and experience provide us with the understanding necessary to educate you on your options.
