CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
"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." M.F.

 

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
"Daniel Bakondi is an attorney who is devoted to his clients. He is knowledgeable, expedient, and meticulous about details. He is honest and provides his clients with a realistic evaluation of their expectations. He doesn't waste your time. Daniel Bakondi is the attorney who will be in your corner all the way." N.T.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

"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." 
 

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL
"Once again you never stop amazing me in your expertise, knowledge, proficiency,
experience and your loyalty, amazing work Counselor" 

FROM COLLEAGUES 

"Daniel is a creative attorney, who brings passion his cases and  is willing to advocate new and interesting legal concepts for his clients"SS

 Attorney Daniel A. Bakondi, Esq. represents clients who suffer investment losses in oil, gas and energy investment projects, and has recovered millions of dollars in compensation in state court, federal court, and FINRA securities arbitrations for investors who have lost money in non-conventional and private placement oil and gas investment projects like Oil and Gas Master Limited Partnership (MLP) investment, and Oil, Gas and Energy Tenant in Common (TIC) investments, including those related to 1031 tax exchange transactions.  

Investment loss recovery for oil and gas master limited partnership investment fraud, losses, non-disclosure, and broker negligence

Currently, many oil and gas master limited partnership investors are seeing substantial losses in matters that are under investigation by our attorneys for possible FINRA arbitration claims, including for negligent broker and financial advisor recommendations.  Some of these oil, gas and energy investments had poor investment financial structures, undisclosed material facts (investment or securities fraud), and conflicts of interests.  Some of these investment projects have borrowed money to increase apparent returns, and mislead investors about risks of loss and actual earnings.

 

Energy investments like oil and gas may be highly speculative and only suitable for investors who are willing and able to bear risk of loss of their entire investment principal.  However, because of the high commissions sometimes paid to brokers and financial advisors, many of these investments were recommended and sold to unsuitable investors like retirees, elderly, sick or disabled, and unsophisticated investors who were not looking to speculate, and could not afford to lose their investment.

If you lose a significant portion of a large investment, experiencing foreclosures, bankruptcies, management disputes, and cash calls, it may not be your fault nor the fault of the market.  Brokers and financial advisors who recommend and sell such investments have a number of strict requirements they must comply with, and otherwise may be liable for some or all of your loss, and often settlements and recoveries can be reached without having to go to court.

Services related to oil, gas and energy investment recovery attorney services include:

  • Negotiation of settlements and buy backs or repurchases of investments in oil and gas master limited partnerships

  • Litigation and arbitration for investment loss recovery of oil and gas investment fund losses 

  • FINRA securities arbitration of oil and gas master limited partnership claims

  • Oil Gas and Energy Tenant in Common TICs investment loss FINRA arbitration attorney services

  • Lawsuit and arbitration attorney services related to Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) litigation 

  • Exchange-Traded Notes (ETNs) litigation attorney services

  • Commodities hedge funds including energy investments

Talk to experienced investment loss recovery attorneys who have handled these matters in the past today.  The law limits how long you have to seek a recovery, and often times, brokers and financial advisors will try to get you to add taking action until the statute of limitations has run out.  Don't wait.

These investments often constitute a significant percentage of an investors portfolio constituting a failure to diversfy and overconcentration in addition to often a faulty product and failure to disclose  material facts.   Suitability concerns are also abundant.

 

There is also currently a rise in defaults of oil and gas bonds.   For more information, see https://securitiesfraudattorney.wordpress.com/2017/07/24/enervest-fund-investment-loss-recovery-attorney-securities-fraud-broker-negligence-litigation-finra-arbitration/
