Protecting Individual and Institutional Investors in Southern California

While most shareholder actions arise when a security issue is unlawfully marketed on the basis of misrepresentations or omissions of material fact in a prospectus, SEC registration, earnings statement, press release or other public document, declining share values can also result from any number of other causes:

  • Illegal insider trading
  • Proxy rule violations
  • Improper accounting practices
  • Mass tort liability
  • Unlawful advertising or marketing practices
  • Conflict of interest or self-dealing at the top levels of a corporation
  • Failure of due diligence in mergers or acquisitions

No matter how your investment was undermined, the trial attorneys of Callahan & Blaine have the practical ability to investigate and articulate the grounds for shareholder action for both individual investors and defined plaintiff classes.

Callahan & Blaine's lawyers can also protect the interests of individual or institutional investors in privately held corporations. We recovered $2.5 million on behalf of a 10 percent owner of a real estate development company when the majority interest had systematically defrauded our client of concealed profits over a 10-year period.
