Northern California Investment Fraud Attorneys

At the law office of Peterson, Martin & Reynolds LLP, we provide investment fraud counseling and representation to individuals and small- and medium-sized businesses throughout northern California.
Investment Fraud Litigation
At its most basic level, investment fraud occurs when deceptive practices induce investors to purchase or sell assets based on false information, ultimately resulting in financial losses to the investors. Investment fraud can involve scammers involved in Ponzi or pyramid schemes who target certain demographics—such as elderly adults with retirement savings—or it can be much more complex and nuanced.
Securities fraud is a type of investment fraud, and sometimes the two terms are used interchangeably. Securities fraud involves deceptive practices in the promotion and sale of securities and other ownership interests in business enterprises.
Persons who have lost money on an investment as a result of deceptive practices have grounds to seek redress through litigation. Victims of investment fraud have the right to recover not only their financial losses when securities fraud occurs but in many cases, punitive, double, and sometimes even triple damages.
