In those claims, the firm has alleged, among other things, that the Atlas Resource investments were:
(1) high-risk and unsuitable for our clients given their financial situation, needs and investment objectives,

(3) that the brokerage firms failed to conduct the proper due diligence with respect to the Atlas investments (as the firms are required to do by FINRA Rules).
Oil & Gas Limited Partnerships are High Risk and Speculative
Oil & Gas limited partnerships are high-risk speculative ventures that often lack liquidity. In addition, limited partnerships offer extremely high commission fees that are often 3-4 times higher than more traditional investments, like mutual funds or bonds.
