Securities Fraud Lawyers, Chicago, Illinois, Updated May 18, 2021
Are you seeking to recover investment losses incurred as a result of the fraud or negligence of your financial professional or brokerage firm? The White Law Group may be able to help.
The White Law Group, LLC is a national securities fraud, securities arbitration, investor protection, and securities regulation/compliance law firm with offices in Chicago, Illinois. With over 30 years of securities law experience, including experience working at FINRA (f/k/a the NASD) and the SEC, The White Law Group has the expertise to help investors defrauded in securities, investment and financial business transactions.
The White Law Group exclusively represents investors seeking to recover investment losses incurred as a result of the fraud or negligence of their financial professional or broker-dealer. We review investment fraud cases involving all FINRA registered broker-dealers and have handled more than 600 cases against most of the major broker-dealers, including Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo, Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney, UBS, Edward Jones, Raymond James, Securities America, Royal Alliance, RBC Capital and Ameriprise.
The securities cases we review often involve some form of the following type of securities fraud: unsuitability, churning (or excessive trading), unauthorized trading, failure to execute, improper use of margin, and overconcentration (holding off an inordinately large position of one investment).
We review numerous securities cases per year involving all manner and scope of securities frauds, but it seems that many of the cases that we review often involve the same general types of investment products. Interestingly, these investment products are also the same products that pay financial advisors the highest commission. The investment products that we most see being abused in reviewing securities fraud cases are cases involving non-traded REITs, variable annuities and variable universal life policies, Promissory Notes, Tenants-In-Common (TICs), 1031 DSTs and mutual funds (particularly proprietary mutual funds – when a brokerage firm pushes its own mutual funds (i.e. a UBS financial advisor recommending UBS mutual funds)).
