“You are a very interesting mix of tiger and kindness”
I would like to testify as to the qualifications and expertise of my company’s attorney, who has also become my personal counsel. His approach is direct, honest and committed to his client. With a dedicated work ethic, he tenaciously works in the interest of his client with a take-charge attitude that demonstrates his knowledge, honesty, enthusiasm and caring.
We have been working with John for the last couple of years as a business transaction attorney. He continues to be, and has been, nothing but timely, professional, and knowledgeable in all services rendered for us. He is meticulous and thoughtful in every aspect, and we would highly recommend his services and still continue to build our relationship with him. His alacrity is continually a pleasant surprise.
After looking at several attorneys to handle my case, I selected John. It was the best choice I could have made. He has given me peace of mind and has handled my case with pure professionalism. I would definitely recommend using John to my friends or family if asked.
Investment Fraud, Disputes and Litigation Attorney
You do not mess with other people’s money. Any corporation issuing stock has a duty to reveal to potential investors the business plan, past performance, reasonable projections of profits and offsets, and known risks such as a competitor’s new product. Failure to make key financial disclosures that may sway investor decisions is known as investment fraud.
The law firm of John McDuff represents individuals or groups of investors in suits alleging misrepresentation or outright fraud in stock purchase and private offerings. Our practice has also successfully defended stockbrokers in investment litigation.
We Work Hard to Recover Your Losses in Investment Fraud
Our law firm seeks client recoveries in every scenario:
- Corporations intentionally misleading shareholders (and brokers)
- Fraud in private offerings of “investment opportunities”
- Securities fraud
- Stock fraud and manipulation
- Buying or selling without authority
Stockbrokers, investment advisers, and other securities professionals have a legal duty to deal honestly with their clients and to disclose all pertinent information regarding investments. Federal law and Texas securities statutes make it illegal for anyone to misrepresent information in connection with the sale of a stock. The consequences of misrepresentation on financial statements can be devastating to investors who seek to make wise choices based on solid facts.
Cases of investment fraud typically involve misrepresentations that were made by a company in an effort to obtain capital from a prospective investor. The company may have misrepresented matters such as the following:
- How much money the company was making
- The amount of assets owned by the company
- The status of other investors’ financial stability
