Our Junk Bond Lawyers Understand How Fraud Occurs

High-yield junk bonds are debt securities. They come from companies with lower credit ratings, usually below investment grade. This makes them riskier. The nickname junk bonds stems from their much higher risk of default than investment-grade securities.

Still, companies with poor credit ratings often need to raise capital. This could allow them to finance expansions, secure acquisitions, or refinance existing debt. This is why high-yield junk bonds exist.

Investors are attracted to junk bonds primarily because of their higher yields compared to safer investments. While they can be profitable, there are also downsides. They are much more susceptible to economic downturns, changes in interest rates, and company-specific issues.

If your broker or brokerage firm failed to adequately warn you about these risks or did not do due diligence on your behalf before investing, you might have a broker negligence case. Our junk bonds fraud lawyer can review the case facts and assess your legal options for free today.

When we represent victims of high-yield junk bond fraud or misconduct, our goals include:

  • Recovering money for our clients based on the case facts
  • Holding the parties responsible for your losses accountable

Depending on the details of what occurred and other factors, there are various avenues our securities fraud attorneys can utilize to reach these goals. This includes:

Securities Litigation

Sometimes, victims can file lawsuits to hold brokers or other responsible parties accountable for securities fraud, misrepresentation, or violations of securities laws. These are complex legal proceedings and are only possible in some cases. Many brokerage firms require arbitration as a part of their contracts, preventing investors from suing.

Class Action Lawsuits

Class action lawsuits may be possible in cases involving multiple investors suffering losses due to the same fraudulent or negligent conduct. Class actions allow investors to consolidate their claims and pursue compensation collectively.

Securities Arbitration

Our attorneys most commonly handle cases for clients through arbitration. Many bond agreements include arbitration clauses, which means the investor must use arbitration instead of litigation to resolve disputes.

Our junk bond lawyers regularly represent investors in Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration proceedings. FINRA arbitration requires knowledge and experience with complex regulations and procedures.

Settlement Negotiations

The parties involved in disputes over high-yield junk bonds often opt for settlement negotiations to resolve the matter without an arbitration hearing or litigation. Our junk bond fraud lawyers are crucial in negotiating favorable settlements for our clients.
