"Mr. Bakondi is a poised and brilliant young man who asked extensive questions to get at the crux of the situation. I was continuously amazed at the fine/pertinent points that Mr. Bakondi dug out of the years of files I had provided him. He quickly filed legal action I would call impressive in its fact-finding, background research, and arguments. In subsequent attorney communications and motions, I saw this astounding incisiveness over and over again. More than once I remarked to him how glad I was that he was not the other side's attorney! In forecasting the time, phases, and expenses of the case, Mr. Bakondi was also unerring. While the entire process took over a year, I never once had the feeling that he was not in complete control of the situation. In consultations, he always had all of the options and their consequences ready at hand, along with his recommendations. Not once did he make an inaccurate forecast or give bad advice. When the case concluded successfully, he tied up all the loose ends as meticulously as everything else he had done." M.A.

"Best of the Best: I hired Daniel a year and a half ago to help with an investment gone wrong. I felt him to be an attorney who is committed to justice and takes pride in all his endeavors. He has the integrity and dedication to follow through and make the process as painless as possible. Daniel guided me to a conclusion in a situation that was very difficult to do. I feel he is the best of the best of young and up and coming attorneys in the city." M.F.

Securities Fraud Attorney for Investment Loss Recovery from Investment Fraud and Financial Advisor Errors

If you have millions of dollars in unexpected investment losses, or a significant portion of your portfolio or retirement, it may not be your fault.  Your broker or financial advisor will not tell you what rules, laws, and industry standards he or she may have violated - but we will. 

Failure to do due diligence before approving an investment for sale, failure to diversify, "overconcentration" into one asset class, breach of fiduciary duty/breach of loyalty, failure to disclose all material facts and risks, and failure to properly assess the investor's goals and recommend appropriate investments are very common breaches of the relationship of trust between investors and investment professionals.  Securities transactions often involve misrepresented or undisclosed facts or risks.  Such acts may constitute securities fraud or investment fraud, stock broker fraud, broker misconduct, breach of fiduciary duty or other violations. 

Mr. Bakondi's practice involves an array of complex stock broker, financial advisor, and broker-dealer malpractice in both securities litigation and arbitration.  Mr. Bakondi and his team seek investor compensation for:

  • Securities fraud lawsuits

  • Securitized real estate/tenant in common 1031 TICs investment losses

  • Non-traded REIT (real estate investment trusts) investment losses

  • Alternative investment and non-conventional investment losses

  • ETFs investment losses

  • Stock market losses

  • Loan funds, investment notes, bond funds, commodities, churning, options lost money

  • Stock price drop losses and stock manipulation

  • Stockholder rights violations

  • Auction rate securities
  • Oil/Gas TICs
  • Commodities losses
  • Complex derivatives
  • Penny stocks
  • Options
  • Sale of unsuitable, overly risky, or speculative investments arbitrations

  • Any other large investment or trading loss

Only a knowledgeable investment fraud attorney can tell you whether the broker breached industry practices and the law.  Such breaches cost investors millions.

FINRA Arbitration Attorney for Tenant in Common TIC 1031 Investment Property Loss Recovery

Attorney Bakondi has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for investors in Tenant in Common TIC 1031 investments in FINRA arbitrations.  TICs are highly speculative investments and only suitable for investors who are willing to risk and lose their entire principal.  However, because of the high commissions paid to brokers and financial advisors, many of these TICs were recommended and sold to retirees, elderly, and unsophisticated investors who were not looking to speculate, and could not afford to lose their investment.

Mr. Bakondi has helped many investors recover money for 1031 Tenant in Common TIC investments that are either reducing distributions, not paying distributions at all, or facing cash calls or foreclosure.  It is often not the fault of management, but the broker and broker-dealer who failed to assess the risks, and sold an overpriced and overleveraged investment with a mortgage the property could never pay back without proper due diligence.  Most major brokerage houses never offered such TIC investments to their clients.  Many broker-dealers who did approve such investments for sale to their customers did so through negligence or securities fraud.
