Pension Fund

Our primary goal is to represent investors who have lost their savings and retirement when their brokerage accounts were mishandled.

Skilled Pension Attorneys for Mishandled Accounts

Pension fund malfeasance can be thought of in two main categories: a malfeasance against the employee beneficiaries of the pension, or a malfeasance against the pension fund itself. The employee type is typically issues about a beneficiary being falsely told what the terms and benefits the pension will provide to that employee will be, or an unauthorized third party gaining access to the pension benefits through some form of identity theft.

The pension fund itself can also be defrauded. The trustee of the pension has to make investment decisions about how the pension will maintain and invest the pension’s assets. Pensions can simply keep assets in cash to pay out future beneficiaries. More commonly, pensions invest the assets in an attempt to meet future obligations with less contributions being required from the employer and/or employees. When making those investment decisions, the trustee can be lied to, misled, or otherwise given poor investment advice about the types of investments that should be selected for the pension funds. In extreme cases, advisors have even stolen pension assets by convincing the trustee to invest in what turn out to be fictitious investments. Experienced pension attorneys can work with clients when their savings is jeopardized.

Client Reviews
"I am going to miss conversations with you, Sam Edwards. You’ve been a wonderful lawyer and a friend. I loved learning legal jargon from you. But, even more, it is your self respect and commitment to your position that I admire and your persistent patience-your equanimity. With great appreciation, thank you!" M.B.
"My experience with Ryan Cook has been very positive. Through every step of the litigation he explained what to expect to happen. When I spoke with him later he reviewed the process. He was very patient and I never felt rushed. I have already told friends how wonderful he is." L.R.
"I want you to know that I very much appreciate your expertise, hard work and guidance that led to a satisfactory resolution with Raymond James. From our first meeting, I felt "heard" and that my situation and story were respected. Every subsequent interaction I had with any of you - in person, via email or by phone - only corroborated that feeling. What great work you do on behalf of people like me who have been wronged, yet don't know how to navigate the appeals/mediation/arbitration process as you do. I will be forever grateful." M.L.
"Good positive experience, guided us through a difficult process and was pleased with the outcome. Everyone I dealt with were exceptional." A.G.
"Good intelligent attorneys who never miss a beat. I set my expectations high and they delivered above and beyond. Do not miss the opportunity to let SSE&K represent you. Top notch, efficient and effective firm." S.M.
