Securities and investment fraud can occur as the result of material misrepresentations and omissions, fraudulent transactions, accounting irregularities, stock option backdating, and massive Ponzi schemes. Federman & Sherwood represents investors across America in class, direct (opt-out), derivative, and other forms of litigation. Our clients span the range from institutional investors to high-wealth investors as well as the average man on the street.
Driven by a strong sense of social responsibility, our attorneys uphold the highest standards of professional behavior. In each case we litigate, we seek to obtain the maximum recovery under the law for our clients and to promote greater corporate responsibility and enhance the integrity of the marketplace for all investors.
We vigorously investigate securities and investment fraud cases on behalf of our clients without charge to them. We recommend litigation only when liability is clear and damages are substantial and recoverable. We assume every case we litigate may proceed to trial and prepare accordingly. This approach enables us to recover a higher percentage of losses for our clients than is typical in securities and financial fraud cases.
