Common Investment Fraud And Securities Litigation Scenarios This Firm Has Handled

  • Ponzi Schemes: These deceptive schemes promise high returns with little risk, but ultimately collapse when new investors dry up. Occasionally crypto ventures are nothing but a disguised pyramid scheme.
  • Affinity Fraud: Scammers exploit trust within a particular group [such as national origin, or a religious commonality, or within senior community group] to sell them bogus investments. Sergiu is a trusted advocate to people in the Russian and Romanian communities of greater Miami who are sometimes targeted by scammers based on their ethnicity. He speaks fluent Russian and Romanian.
  • Unsuitable Investments: Investment advisers might recommend risky investments that are not aligned with financial goals or risk tolerance, misrepresenting the investments as “safe” or “guaranteed.”
  • Fraudulent Transfers: Debtors sometimes transfer assets with the goal of delaying, avoiding or defrauding a creditor. Florida law has a list of factors called “badges of fraud” which raise a presumption of a fraudulent transfer. Thus, for example, when a debtor transfers assets without getting fair value in return, or transfers to a close relative or to an insider, or when the debtor is either insolvent [unable to pay debts in due course] at the time of the transfer or becomes insolvent as a result of the transfer – creditors can claim the transfer fraudulent and ask the judge to claw it back. There are laws in place to prevent fraudulent transfers. This firm will take your case to court to have the judge or the jury right the wrong.

Sophisticated Representation That Gets Results

Mr. Gherman uses a comprehensive approach to ensure no stone is left unturned in the pursuit of a just result. Securities litigation can be complex and may involve several complaints, motion practice, third-party defendants and counter-defendants. It also requires claims and counterclaims, written and verbal discovery, court-ordered mediation, trial, and occasionally an appeal.

As circumstances demand, Gherman Legal may subpoena banks, cryptocurrency spot trading exchanges and other financial institutions, compelling them to reveal information about the relevant transactions. Sometimes, the plaintiff seeks to freeze various accounts, preventing the movement of funds or assets. Seizing specific assets purchased with diverted finds like luxury cars, property or artwork, can also be achieved through court orders. The firm also gathers any evidence you have, such as correspondence, text messages and emails, contracts, or bank statements. These will assist in determining a realistic and achievable goal for negotiation, considering the totality of the losses and potential legal costs. Elaborate as the litigation process may be, having a trusted legal counsel will help you obtain the most favorable result.

While there are initial costs associated with hiring a lawyer, working with one saves money in the long run by avoiding costly legal mistakes. With Gherman Legal, you increase your chances of recovering more money than you would on your own. The firm appreciates the importance of evidence and how it can weaken or strengthen your case. What if there is an amicable resolution you don’t see? Sometimes a quick mediation or arbitration can be more cost effective than litigating through discovery and trial.

Act promptly. Most types of business and consumer fraud get reported to Federal Trade Commission (FTC). This is a central reporting system that shares information with other law enforcement agencies. The sooner you report the fraud and contact Gherman Legal, the better chance you have of recovering your losses. Sergiu’s legal experience and advocacy skills will give you an advantage in recovering your funds or favorably resolving your financial dispute.
