Securities regulation is a highly specialized discipline of law. The securities team at Kimball Anderson maintains the unique knowledge needed to assist with litigation-based securities issues. We can represent you in many kinds of litigation involving investments. The securities litigation team works closely with the securities offerings team. This collaboration means that our attorneys also have significant experience with the transactional side of the securities realm.
When litigation occurs for securities, investors typically file a lawsuit against a security issuer for fraud. In these cases, it is crucial to have a complete understanding of each state’s securities laws. These are typically known as Blue Sky Laws. Our team of attorneys has experience dealing with Blue Sky laws, especially in Utah. In many situations, there are arbitration clauses in broker agreements. Because of this, it is crucial to contact our transactional securities team before signing any contracts. Many of our litigation attorneys at Kimball Anderson have experience in arbitration. Clients who find themselves locked into an agreement with an arbitration clause can still receive assistance from our team.
As a firm, we have represented broker-dealers, fiduciaries, and investment firms for violations of state and federal laws. We have also represented investors seeking redress when their broker relationships fail. Our securities litigation team has experience litigating issues like backdating of stock options, insider trading, projection misrepresentation, and IPO. The attorneys at Kimball Anderson also work on secondary offerings, private placements, asset transfers, and fraudulent marketing and investment materials issues.
