Anapol Schwartz represents individuals and companies who have lost money in their investment accounts or retirement and pension plans.
If funds are properly invested, large stock market losses should be only rare occurrences. Unfortunately, that is not the case and is often the direct result of financial advisor or broker's negligence, dishonesty or even fraud.
The securities attorneys at Anapol Schwartz have reviewed hundreds and hundreds of investment accounts where stock market losses have been sustained and are aggressively pursuing recovery for our clients. Many of these cases have been filed against the largest brokerage firms, including Salomon Smith Barney-CitiBank, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley Dean Whittier, UBS Paine Webber, Prudential, Legg Mason, PNC Bank, Edward Jones, and American Express Financial Services.
Some of the cases we have handled have included the following:
Retired couple whose broker over-concentrated their accounts in risky technology and telecommunications stock; disabled car accident victim who lost more than sixty (60%) percent of his account value in less than two years as a result of his broker's negligence, 80 year old couple who lost over $400,000.00 of their retirement savings because the broker over-concentrated their investments in Enron stock; widow whose broker lost more than half of the proceeds of her husband's
life insurance policy through high risk investments; single mother who lost more than one-half of the accounts value after broker placed her assets in high-risk mutual funds; retired couple whose accounts lost more than seventy (70%) percent of their value after being invested in brokerage firm's mutual funds for which improper and undisclosed sales incentives and fees were paid; and a retired couple who lost more than half of their retirement savings after broker sold them unsuitable variable annuities.
You may be able to recover some or all of your investment losses through an out of court arbitration process. These arbitrations provide investors with an opportunity to recovery losses caused by various broker and financial advisor practices and misconduct. Our attorneys are experienced in reviewing all of the necessary paperwork and work with securities experts to properly calculate your stock market losses and prove your case at securities arbitration. Our securities attorneys are experienced and have been handling cases against the Wall Street lawyers hired by the largest brokerage firms for years. The NASD and NYSE arbitration systems can be confusing to investors. Let us help you simplify this process. We handle these securities arbitration cases with the same passion and commitment that we have employed in protecting victims' rights before juries in the court system.
