Investor Protection
& Securities Fraud

An investor protection or securities fraud class action is a lawsuit brought on behalf of a group of  investors who have suffered an economic loss in a particular stock or security as a result of fraudulent stock manipulation or other violations of federal or state securities law.  In federal practice, such cases are brought by “Lead Plaintiffs,” who were investors in the stock and suffered monetary losses because of the alleged financial manipulation or fraud.  The “Lead Plaintiffs” bring the lawsuit on behalf of all investors who have suffered financial losses.
