Non-Traded Investments

Non-Traded Investment cases are brought on behalf of individuals and groups who lost money because someone recommended that they invest in investments that were not publicly traded. Some of these products include:

  • GWG L Bonds
  • Hospitality Investors Trust REIT
  • structured products
  • derivatives
  • annuities
  • hedge funds
  • private placements

While these offerings may promise attractive returns and diversification opportunities, they can also carry significant risks, and investors may find themselves facing unexpected losses.

All investments carry some risk. However, if you believe that a financial product failed due to factors like greed, mismanagement, or breaches of fiduciary responsibility, it’s essential to consult attorneys who focus on investor protection and litigation. A financial fraud attorney can provide insights into potential violations, drawing on industry expertise and a broad knowledge of securities-related activities.

One of the primary challenges investors face with financial products is the lack of transparency. Many of these offerings come with intricate terms, convoluted fee structures, and hidden risks that may not be adequately disclosed to investors. As a result, investors may find themselves entangled in investments that they do not fully understand, exposing them to financial harm. Our team is well-versed in scrutinizing these products and identifying instances of misrepresentation, omissions, or negligence on the part of brokers, financial advisors, or institutions.

When handling financial product recovery cases, our attorneys employ a multi-faceted approach that starts with a thorough investigation. We delve into the product’s details, examining the marketing materials, offering documents, and disclosures to determine if any critical information was withheld or misrepresented. We also analyze the financial institutions’ conduct, assessing whether they have adhered to their fiduciary duties and regulatory obligations. Our legal team may also collaborate with financial experts to assess the product’s risks and suitability for our clients’ unique financial situations.

Once we establish a solid foundation through our investigation, we develop a compelling legal strategy tailored to each client’s circumstances. Our approach may include filing arbitration claims through FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) or pursuing litigation in court. Throughout this process, we maintain open lines of communication with our clients, keeping them informed and involved in every step of their case.

One of the key aspects of financial product recovery is demonstrating that the product in question was unsuitable for the investor given their risk tolerance, investment objectives, and financial situation. Our attorneys leverage their extensive knowledge of securities laws, regulations, and industry standards to build a persuasive case.

Our ultimate goal in financial product recovery cases is to secure compensation for our clients’ losses. By holding responsible parties accountable, we not only pursue justice for our clients but also aim to prevent similar situations from occurring in the future.
