At Williams Dirks Dameron we regularly represent investors who have been harmed by the conduct of their advisors or other individuals. Primarily we represent investors in two types of disputes:
Disputes with the company itself for fraud or other misconduct, and
Disputes with the investor’s broker for “churning” or recommending unsuitable investments.
In the first context, companies – both private and public – may engage in fraud or other misconduct. Private placements in particular may be subject to heightened risks that the prospectus or offering documents are not truthful, or that the venture will be mismanaged. In either situation – whether the company is private or public – we are able to represent investors and help them recover.
In the second context – cases against brokers – we represent investors in disputes with their brokers where the broker has “churned” a file, meaning the broker has generated trades in order to garner a larger commission. We also represent investors where the broker has recommended investments that are not suitable for the particular investor’s risk profile.
All Types of Investors
We do not just represent individual investors – we also represent corporate and institutional investors who have been the victim of misconduct. Whether it’s a partner company in a joint venture or a pension fund, we have the expertise necessary to prosecute cases on behalf of any investors with any degree of sophistication.
Williams Dirks Dameron Contingency Fee Model
Unlike other firms, Williams Dirks Dameron represents investors on a contingency basis, meaning that we do not bill clients by the hour. Instead, we represent you on a contingency basis, where you pay no legal fees unless we ultimately recover money for you. This contingency model where we get paid only if our client gets paid aligns our interests with our clients’ interests – interests that maximize recovery as efficiently as possible.
