Investor Litigation

Securities Class Action Law Firm: In a “millions of dollars damages case”…[The Guardian Team] Has spent considerable time gathering evidence, locating & interviewing witnesses, conducting factual and legal research…[The Guardian Team was/is] invaluable to the prosecution of this case. I highly recommend them..

SMALL INVESTOR

Based on your world class research and review of the complex documents.. a solution was had and I received my entire lost investment back….

LARGE INVESTOR

Our Investment Bank and syndicate of investors, had one of our investments in a publicly traded instrument, derail under seemingly odd circumstances. We had a review performed by several top notch law firms to no avail. We then contacted this group and Mike lead the review to see what we could uncover – if anything.

 

Working over the Holidays in the winter…, [The Guardian Group Team] uncovered several claims and theories for us. Over the next 12 months, he further uncovered and articulated the elements needed to allege fraud and misrepresentation in a research report….. [They] had the contacts with expertise in securities plaintiffs law, and had the ability to interact with all the many plaintiffs from across the globe.

 

In the end, we had a fully contingent representation, we litigated with [The Team] working on the matter from day one, until settlement. We recovered a nice chunk of our investment - over seven figures. We are, as are our syndication clients in five countries – very happy with [The Guardian Group Team].

ON CIVIL RIGHTS/JUSTICE

[From the] lead attorney in a civil rights action [on behalf of] Native Americans, African Americans, Latinos, Women and other protected groups of people.…[The Guardian Group Team] has been an extraordinary resource to me since we started this project together…provided me with background information on the problem and introduced me to key players including my current clients….found expert resources for me to rely on as we try to make new law ….has helped draft pleadings and fact statements that have made my job easier and ensured that our work product is of the highest quality. Finally, he has kept me informed of our deadlines and made sure that we file our documents on time. [The Guardian Group Team] is an invaluable legal resource and champion for justice.

 

Your countless hours of volunteer work on [Section 2 Civil Rights matter] was very helpful to the cause of Native Americans…You are tenacious in your work on behalf of Civil Rights matters.

CONSUMER ISSUES

In re Ford Motor Company: False and deceptive miles per gallon (mpg) advertising – on this concept, which resulted in the first filing of a national class-action, this team was involved in fact gathering and background document gathering for the class-action filed by a client.

THE ODD STUFF WE GET...
