Defrauded Investors Legal Advice
In recent years, the number of corporate financial scandals has grown at an alarming rate. The trend of officers and directors defrauding and misleading investors has continued at a steady pace. Click here for Recently Filed Securities Class Actions. A direct result of this type of corporate malfeasance is a monetary loss for investors, which often are individuals that can least afford an investment loss.
In 1995, Congress passed the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act ("PSLRA") in order to tip the balance of power back into the hands of investors. Indeed, any investor, regardless of the size of his or her investment, can initiate securities class action lawsuits when their purchase or sale of a security was due to a false or misleading statement, or an omission, by officers or directors of a public company. Corporate and securities fraud litigation insures honest financial reporting as well as integrity within the securities markets.
