The purpose of this website is to highlight fraudulent schemes that are happening here in Utah, and provide people with tools and information to protect themselves.
Every day we get calls from people here in Utah who have lost significant sums of money — in many cases their entire life savings — after investing with friends, church members and even family members. This is often described as affinity fraud, and unfortunately it happens all the time here in Utah.
If you are a victim of fraud our securities and investment litigation team may be able to help. We have the largest and most experienced fraud litigation groups in Utah and have recovered many millions of dollars for our clients.
We take the following types of cases:
Disputes with brokerage firms and other financial institutions involving fraud, failure to supervise, unsuitability, unauthorized trading, refusal to permit trades, churning, and selling away.
Whistleblower claims with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the CFTC, and the Utah Division of Securities.
Helping victims of Ponzi schemes, real estate scams, and other financial frauds to recover their losses.
Filing IRS whistleblower claims on behalf of individuals who have information about tax fraud.
In many cases we represent our clients on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t charge a fee unless our clients receive a reward.
Ray Quinney & Nebeker has recently been growing our whistleblower and qui tam/false claims act practice group. We now have one of the largest and most experienced groups in the region, including a former United States Attorney and two former attorneys with the U.S. Department of Justice. Together we have many years of experience assisting clients with the investigation of these cases, navigating the complex statutory framework relating to these cases, maintaining confidentiality, protecting against retaliation and, where appropriate, filing lawsuits.
We have filed a number of claims with state and federal regulators and have recovered millions of dollars for our clients. We have the expertise, experiences and resources to investigate even the largest False Claims Act cases and to represent our clients from the claims process through trial.
