Securities and investment fraud litigation focuses on finding out the truth about what, exactly, your money was invested into. Even with all of the market and investment regulations and reform that has taken place in recent years, investors are still being misled. It is easy for solicitors of investment sales to be misleading. Everyone wants to invest in the next big thing that is sure to pay big dividends, and your opportunity to get in on a good deal is always limited, right? And, it is not just inexperienced investors that get misled. Experienced investors who do extensive research get duped too.
Securities fraud and investment fraud occurs when anyone soliciting, or participating in soliciting, investments intentionally makes a material misrepresentation or omission in connection with their solicitation efforts. If a solicited investor relies on the misrepresentation or omission of information and is harmed, that investor might have claims for securities fraud or investment fraud.
The civil litigation attorneys at Jones & Swartz PLLC have helped a number of clients prosecute securities and investment fraud cases against people and companies who used misrepresentation and omission to solicit investments. Our Boise-based law firm has also successfully defended people and companies who unknowingly assisted their client in the fraudulent solicitation of investments.
If you have an investment that, in hindsight, is reminding you of the old saying, “If something seems too good to be true, it probably is,” you might have a claim for securities or investment fraud. Call Jones & Swartz PLLC today for a free consultation.
