Securities & Financial Fraud Litigation

in Personal & Class Action

DiCello Levitt’s attorneys aggressively and creatively pursue relief on behalf of individual investors and classes of investors in securities and financial fraud litigation. When powerful defendants attempt to defraud or otherwise damage the financial interests of investors through fraudulent means and/or violation of state and federal securities laws, our attorneys stand ready to hold such defendants responsible for their actions through class action and individual actions. We pursue claims on behalf of clients through Section 10b-5 actions, ERISA claims, or shareholder actions against officers and directors. We also represent clients in connection with M&A transactions; as victims of deceptive trade practices; and as investors in pension plans, 401(k) plans, and ESOPs seeking recovery for losses based on ERISA violations.  We presently lead several significant actions in this area, including serving as lead counsel in litigation on behalf of Wells Fargo’s retirement plan participants arising out of that bank’s long-running scheme of opening unauthorized consumer accounts.

Whether you or your business organization have been defrauded or otherwise financially harmed in an investment scheme by a business partner or a third party, our attorneys have the experience, skills, and resources necessary to doggedly pursue your interests in state or federal courts, or in any other relevant domestic or international tribunal, to win justice and financial recovery against the largest financial players.

    How We Help

    Securities and financial fraud matters generally involve deeply complex factual scenarios and governing regulations, but our attorneys have the sophistication and experience to aggressively pursue relief in all cases, including:

    • Omissions and misstatements by issuers
    • Fraudulent statements to induce investment
    • Hedge fund and mutual fund litigation
    • Fraudulent financial schemes (e.g. Ponzi schemes)
    • Breach of duty by directors and officers

    Taking On Wrongdoers

    Defendants in large-scale securities and financial fraud litigation often carry out their financial misdeeds through complex economic strategies and deceptive practices specifically designed to prevent victims from becoming aware of the wrongdoing and/or taking actions to seek redress. At DiCello Levitt, however, our attorneys have a remarkable record in untangling the most intricate financial deceptions and misconduct to prove wrongdoing and win recovery on behalf of our clients.

    On Your Side

    Whether you are a shareholder injured by the acts of a company director/officer, an investor who lost money through issuer errors and omissions made in filings or other statements, an individual or entity who has been injured due to breaches of fiduciary duties by investment managers, or any other party injured by an economic actor who has violated their duties or state/federal securities laws, the attorneys of DiCello Levitt have the skills to fight on your behalf.
