Eppenstein and Eppenstein is
a leading New York law firm representing US and international investors in securities arbitration who seek
aggressive, quality legal representation to recover losses stemming from investment fraud and mismanagement. We
handle a wide range of arbitration and litigation matters, including
commodities fraud and securities fraud, stockbroker abuses, securities industry
employment disputes and general commercial litigation. If you have concerns over fraud or mismanagement of your investment portfolio contact Eppenstein & Eppenstein.
The alleged fraud conducted at Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC may prove to be the greatest self-described Ponzi scheme in history, with potentially up to $50 billion in losses. At the end of 2008, a year marked by global market turmoil and the financial sector meltdown, BMIS was just the latest unwelcome crisis for investors.
Ponzi schemes typically pay or promise excessively high returns to investors. The catch is that such payments, if and when they do materialize, come out of the money paid in by those same or subsequent investors, not from actual profits generated by any real business. Investors caught in these high stakes scams by seemingly reputable operations, which inevitably implode, include high net worth individuals and hedge funds.
Eppenstein and Eppenstein won a record recovery in 2002 of over $46 million for 13 investors in a massive commodities fraudulent allocation scheme, with features much like a Ponzi scheme. We invite you to contact us to discuss your situation.
Stock Market Crash of 2008: Talk to Our Lawyers About Your Stock Market Investment Losses
The stock market crash of 2008 put more investors than ever before in a state of shocked disbelief and stressed out uncertainty over their unprecedented investment losses. The credit freeze, housing and subprime mortgage bubble, and derivative instruments that were anything but safe have all contributed to the damage. But investors are not without remedies. Many things that investors relied on went wrong besides the failure of industry risk assessment, oversight and market regulation. But investors have a way to find help. We believe investors with stock market losses should explore carefully the affirmative action they can take to recover their assets.
We have seen stock market abuses before, though not on this scale. This time, far too many investors were told their investment funds were suitable and safe, when in fact their investment objectives and risk tolerance were ignored and their funds were subjected to unjustifiable risk. Brokerage accounts were excessively traded, or traded without authorization. The industry misrepresented the nature of investments and failed to explain the hidden risks.
Our attorneys have been on the cutting edge of the law, helping shape the course of investment arbitration and litigation as well as advocating for investors rights in the courts and the halls of Congress. We have been pioneers in fashioning securities arbitration methods that we used to attain the highest customer victory of $42 million in a complex arbitration for several clients, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. We invite you to check out our Web site at www.securitieslawarbitration.com to learn about specific customer cases in which we have represented investors in recovering their stock market losses. Contact us to learn how we can put our dedication, experience and knowledge to work for you in assessing your legal options.
Hedge Fund Fraud Attorneys
The inherently speculative investment vehicles used by hedge funds, which pool investors’ money and invest those funds in financial instruments in an effort to achieve positive returns, may substantially increase the risk of financial losses to investors. Hedge fund failures may involve questionable hedge fund sales practices and advertising misconduct that fails to disclose potential risks to unwary individual investors, money managers and institutional investors such as pension systems.
The unraveling of Long Term Capital Management and Amaranth LLC, and hedge funds run by Bear Stearns, have been just a few examples in a parade of headline grabbing hedge fund collapses. The losses can be staggering, running into billions of dollars.
The mission of Eppenstein and Eppenstein is to help recover losses suffered by victims of all types of investment fraud and misconduct by brokers and others, including hedge fund fraud and mismanagement. Investors and their money managers have looked to our attorneys to achieve the highest levels of asset recovery, as exemplified in our record recovery of $46 million for just one group of thirteen clients in 2002. Contact our office if you are victim of investment fraud.
The stock market bubble and continuing volatility has caused unprecedented anxiety and investment losses for investors of all income levels. But senior investors with limited resources or who are already retired have a heightened sense of urgency to determine whether they will be able to recover their assets.
Are you a senior citizen, a Baby Boomer, or has a family member, friend or other retirement age person you know been victimized by investment abuses or fraud in connection with an investment account, pension plan or mortgage? Read more about how we can help.
