Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter is aggressively pursuing claims against a variety of brokerage firms and banks for misrepresentation and/or omissions in the sale of securities as well as stockbroker negligence and stockbroker fraud. Many of these firms and their products are currently or will be the subject of numerous class action lawsuits. Investors must carefully consider their options when pursuing claims for their investment related losses. There are definite benefits associated with filing an individual arbitration claim, as opposed to participating in a class action.
When participating in a class action lawsuit, investors typically only recover a very small percentage of their losses, usually pennies on the dollar. However, if you have experienced significant losses, it may be more advantageous for you to file an individual securities arbitration claim. Our securities litigation experience has revealed investors who file a securities arbitration claim typically obtain a better result then those investors choosing to participate in a class action lawsuit.
