The United States securities laws derive from two common-sense notions:
First, companies that sell stocks or bonds to the public must tell the truth about their operation, the securities they are selling, and the risks involved in investing.
Second, people who sell and trade securities – brokers, dealers, underwriters, and exchanges – must treat investors fairly and honestly, putting investors’ interests first.
When corporations tell the truth about their business and prospects, capital markets become far more active, efficient, and transparent, which, in turn, facilitates the capital formation so important to our nation’s economy. However, that is not always the case.
GSP protects the rights of investors who lost money as a result of companies not telling the truth. While our lawyers have represented investors from domestic and foreign pension funds, and Taft Hartley funds, our focus is on protecting the rights of individual investors. We level the playing field for our clients and have recovered billions of dollars for investors harmed by securities and investment fraud.
If you lost money on an investment, whether it’s a sudden stock drop as a result of a surprise announcement or disappointing news, or have been the victim of a Ponzi scheme, our lawyers are here to help you. Please contact Paul Scarlato or Mark Goldman to discuss the steps you might take to recover your losses.
