Securities Fraud Lawyers Representing Clients Nationwide

Stone Bonner & Rocco LLP ("SBR") has vast experience handling lawsuits and arbitrations involving securities fraud. Our attorneys regularly represent pension funds, venture capital funds, hedge funds and other institutional investors in large, complex matters involving the purchase and sale of stocks, bonds, options, derivatives and other securities.

We also frequently represent individual investors pursuing fraud-related claims against stock brokers in arbitration proceedings before the Financial Industry Regulation Authority (FINRA) and other arbitral bodies. Our lawyers also regularly serve as lead counsel in securities class actions in state and federal courts nationwide.

Since 2002, SBR has acted as special counsel to the State of New Jersey's public pension funds in securities fraud matters. The Securities and Exchange Commission has also retained SBR on multiple occasions to serve as a receiver and distribution agent in cases involving insider trading and Ponzi schemes.

Our securities fraud matters frequently raise issues related to:

  • Stock broker fraud and misconduct
  • Stock manipulation
  • Hedge fund, mutual fund and corporate fraud
  • Accounting fraud
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Insider trading
  • Churning
  • The unsuitability of brokerages' investment advice

Our successful results in securities fraud actions include In re Tyco International Ltd. Securities Litigation, where SBR achieved settlements on behalf of a number of State of New Jersey pension funds. In that matter, the court cited the results achieved by SBR as the "gold standard" for the lawyers in the many related actions. The amount in settlement payments received from Tyco and the company's former officers, directors and auditors constituted more than 50 times the recovery that our clients would have received had they remained members of the class in the Tyco lawsuit.

SBR is committed to achieving favorable results on behalf of its clients in the most expedient and economical manner possible. Contact us online or by calling 212-239-4340 to schedule a no-cost consultation. We maintain conveniently located offices in New York City and New Jersey.
