Securities Fraud

Corporate scandals can cost investors billions, and losses incurred by investors increase as corporate fraud becomes more complex. As these scandals and acts of corporate misconduct continue to increase, our firm has a dedicated team of consistently growing resources and personnel committed to securities fraud and other securities class action work.

As stated in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, “The overriding purpose of our Nation’s securities laws is to protect investors and to maintain confidence in the securities markets, so that our national savings, capital formation and investment may grow for the benefit of all Americans…Private securities litigation is an indispensable tool with which defrauded investors can recover their losses without having to rely on government action. Such private lawsuits promote public and global confidence in our capital markets and help to deter wrongdoing.”

Motley Rice is proud to work closely with shareholders and institutional investors to help them recover shareholder value and financial losses through litigation.

Our Experience in Securities Fraud Litigation

Motley Rice attorneys represent domestic and international clients ranging from individuals to union funds, state and municipal pension funds, hedge funds and other domestic and foreign institutional investors who have suffered significant financial losses due to the purchase of stocks at artificially inflated prices or a loss of investment value resulting from the market’s response to fraud disclosure.

We have served as lead or co-lead counsel in numerous securities cases, including class actions against Fortune 500 companies, and we assist our clients in pursuing leadership roles in litigation when appropriate, only bringing losses and the potential for litigation to the attention of our clients when we strongly feel that it is necessary.
