Dallas Securities Fraud Attorney
Securities fraud claims are more often the subject of arbitration through FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) and the AAA (American Arbitration Association), where shareholder rights claims face a higher risk of failure than ever before. As Texas securities fraud lawyers, we have a depth of experience representing a range of clients such as high net-worth individuals, family estates, founding shareholders, minority shareholders, institutional investors and hedge funds partners, to name a few.
We have been involved in matters such as minority shareholder rights abuse, controlling shareholders attempting to manipulate a company, freeze-out tactics or other minority shareholder oppression, breach of fiduciary relationship, investment suitability, account churning, securities fraud, shareholder separations and securities dealer employment law claims involving defamation and disparagement. In these and other matters, Kilgore & Kilgore attorneys served as lead or liaison counsel before FINRA, the AAA and in state and federal courts.
We Protect Our Investor, Shareholder, Investment Advisor and Broker Clients
Some recent case examples include:
- Representing founding shareholders as they separate from their companies;
- Representing a hedge funds partner in recovering investments and compensation;
- Assisting shareholders and employee groups in class action litigation in recovering large dollar amounts from organizations that committed securities fraud or were found to be in violation of the ERISA Act or other federal guidelines;
- Assisting individuals in investment advisor disputes, investment suitability cases, churning and breaches of fiduciary relationship;
- Representing investors in derivative lawsuits, Ponzi schemes, market manipulation, conspiracy to defraud and other securities fraud claims; and
- Making FINRA claims on behalf of a broker terminated from a securities dealer involving defamation and disparagement.
Build a Law Team
Kilgore & Kilgore respects established relationships with corporate counsel and frequently joint ventures with other lawyers representing companies wishing to create legal teams with adequate resources. We receive most of our business referrals from other lawyers. When a conflict arises or there is a need for local or trial counsel, we stand ready to support the team in whatever configuration makes the most sense for achieving the best outcome.
Teamwork Concept Expanded
We are especially keen to control legal costs and align ourselves with the economic interests of clients. We use a variety of strategies to fit different situations, such as flat rate fees, contingency fees, reverse contingent fees and modified hourly rates. When contingency fee scenarios come into play, we apply legal fees, court costs and other reimbursable expenses to the client’s portion of the settlement amount.
