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 or have information about an ongoing fraud scheme, our securities and investment litigation team may be able to help. We have the largest and most experienced investment 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 Department of Justice (involving bank fraud), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), and the Utah Division of Securities. All of these agencies administer whistleblower award programs.
- Helping victims of Ponzi schemes, real estate scams, and other financial frauds to recover their losses.
