Investor Loss Recovery Group
Big financial losses can at worst completely derail or, at best, put retirement plans on hold. The consequences can be far reaching and permanent. If you have suffered a serious loss you should be aware that you may be able to recover some or all of these losses. If you are retired or near-retired you have a special status recognized in law. The starting point in the analysis is usually the same: What level of risk in investing did you agree to take and what were your stated investment objectives? If these parameters were violated the investments your savings were put into would be seen as “unsuitable” and liability falls on your investment advisors. Retired persons are viewed differently than other investors because they usually lack the ability to make up losses through regular and ongoing employment income and the like. Thus the “suitability rule” is applied more strictly in a retirement context. As a very general rule of thumb, the less you are financially able to handle a particular loss, the less suitable that investment was for you.
Your claim may be based on breach of contract, misrepresentation or negligence. We have seen them all and are very familiar with every aspect of what can and very often does go very wrong in investing.
Our Group can help get retirement plans back on track by recovering losses in all types of investments through fair settlements and Court processes. Our Group is made up of experienced lawyers and market experts that can quickly tell you whether you have a claim to proceed with. Our initial review is usually undertaken with summary information provided by you and through over the phone or brief in-person consultations. We know exactly what we are looking for and can offer promptness and efficiency.
We are very much alive to the cost to an investor of using our services. We can offer flexible fee arrangements tailored to your needs, usually involving a contingent fee component where we are paid fees only when we are successful. In many instances, claims can be grouped together to achieve economies of scale and sharing of significant costs such as independent expert fees.
Last year in 2010 our Group successfully handled over 35 investor claims valued in a range of less than $100,000 to several million dollars each. Virtually every claim was settled with a good result! We almost always prefer mediated settlements to proceeding all the way to a Court trial.
