Securities Class Actions

Securities Class Actions are an Essential Tool for Asset Recovery of Fraud Related Losses

History has shown that no amount of legislation or government oversight is enough to stop publicly traded companies from committing securities fraud. Despite attempts by Congress to stem the tide of securities fraud for nearly eighty years, from the 1933 Securities Act to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, new fraudulent schemes are still being uncovered at an alarming rate, costing investors billions of their hard-earned dollars. Securities fraud comes in many varieties, but the common thread is that when the truth finally comes to light, investors’ portfolios, bank accounts, and even personal lives can be devastated.

Investors need a strong adviser, advocate, and ally to ensure those who commit securities fraud are held accountable. Nearly all of Saxena White’s attorneys concentrate in the area of securities class actions, and have represented investors in some of the largest and most complex securities cases in the nation. The practice group consists of former prosecutors and large firm lawyers who have spent their entire careers prosecuting high-profile securities cases and complex frauds. We routinely handle cases against the nation’s largest companies and have the lawyers, experience, and resources necessary to obtain the greatest possible recovery for our clients.

The US Supreme Court has repeatedly stated that investor-led class actions provide “a most effective weapon in the enforcement of the securities laws” and are “a necessary supplement to Commission action.”
