Private Placement Loss Lawyer

Are You An Investor Who Purchased HJ Sims Private Placements?

Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas Private Placement Loss Lawyer team Is Investigating Claims of Losses 

If you suffered losses from a private placement offering from HJ Sims (Herbert J. Sims and Co.), Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas would like to talk to you. The firm has come under scrutiny over its sale of at least 93 Regulation D private offerings—around $2.2B worth over the last decade.

HJ Sims was the only broker-dealer selling 84 of these products from Regulation D issuers that its executives set up and controlled. This means it stood to benefit from the commissions and fees that came with both the offering and the sale of these bonds. Not only that but once a bond defaults on at least one principal and/or interest payment, its value drops substantially.

Here Is a List of HJ Simms Private Placements That Have Defaulted:

  • Sims Cathcart Funding
  • Cypress Point Funding
  • Riverchase Funding
  • Gryphon Finance I
  • Madison Funding I
  • Tuscan Isle Holdings I
  • Tuscan Isle Championsgate Holdings
  • Hawkeye Village Finance I
  • Meridian Portfolio Funding I
  • Poet’s Walk Funding I
  • Wakefield Portfolio Funding I
  • HJSI Athena Portfolio Finance

Our dedicated Reg D private placement loss recovery lawyers are also looking into allegations that bond price changes on customer account statements may have been inflated compared to their actual liquid market value or what buyers were willing to pay. Meanwhile, customers were unaware of the losses they had incurred in these investments.

SLCG Economic Consulting noted in 2022 that although HJ Sims was valuing its Reg D investments at around $75 on average, they had likely become almost worthless.

The Importance of Working With Skilled Private Placement Loss Attorneys

These are complex, high-risk, unregistered, speculative, and usually illiquid investments. They should only be sold to accredited investors and tend to pay brokerage firms commissions of 7%-12%. Unfortunately, there continue to be too many instances in which Reg D private placements end up being sold to conservative retirees and retail investors. However, even accredited investors have been known to suffer significant private placement losses.

If you are someone who has lost money in an HJ Sims private placement offering—and we find that you do have grounds for pursuing damages from the brokerage firm—you will want to work with savvy Reg D private placement loss recovery lawyers who know how to represent you in this type of investor fraud lawsuit.

Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas have the skills, experience, and knowledge you need to bring this type of claim. Our results speak for themselves. More than 90% of our clients have received full or partial financial recovery.
