Individual Investors

If you have been the victim of your broker's securities fraud or negligence or other misconduct involving your invesments, Stoll Berne will vigorously represent your interests in securities arbitration before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and in cases before state and federal court.  Our lawyers are recognized by Oregon Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers of America and others as preeminent securities fraud lawyers.

We have represented hundreds of investors in securities arbitrations and trials, helping them recover losses from unsuitable investments, fraud, churning, unauthorized trading, margin disputes, Ponzi schemes,and many other type of misconduct involving investment. Read about some of our sample cases.

We are based in Oregon and regularly appear before arbitrators and judges in Oregon, Washington, California and throughout the West. Potential clients should be careful when picking a securities fraud attorney. Many law firms and lawyers on the Internet appear to be based in Oregon, or come up in searches for Oregon securities lawyers. But they often are from New York, Florida, or another state and are not familiar with developments in Oregon law, local judges, arbitrators, local court customs and procedures. If in doubt, ask the lawyer how to pronounce "Willamette," and give us a call if it doesn't sound right.

We will have an initial meeting with you at no cost to discuss your case.  We also may represent you on a contingent fee basis, meaning you do not pay our attorney fees unless you recover damages from the defendant.
