Securities Fraud Case Summaries

Fraudulent Investment

We represented a group of investors who invested over $1,000,000 in a real estate/resort development which never materialized. We successfully negotiated a settlement that resulted in our clients obtaining a controlling interest in the successor entity as well as a substantial amount of real property.

Private Offering

We represented an investor in a private offering. In the case, we alleged, among other things, that the company and its founder engaged in securities fraud and breach of fiduciary duty in connection with the solicitation of our client’s investment money. We obtained a significant judgment against the company and the founders.

Private Offering

We represented a group of board members in a large securities fraud case in Dallas involving a $25,000,000 private offering of stock in an alternative energy company. Our clients were a group of investors who had obtained a seat on the board as a result of their large investment. We resolved the case in mediation with our clients being absolved of liability and contributing $0 to the ultimate settlement. Subsequent to this case, we obtained a sizable judgment against one of the founders of the company for breach of fiduciary duty in connection with this transaction.
