The past few years have battered many investors leaving them in the same financial boat they were in 10 years ago, or worse. Some have received negligent advice or have been mistreated by financial advisors, and have watched their portfolios nose dive, and in some cases, disappear. Since the discovery of the Madoff fraud and investment scandals associated with the global credit crisis, investors have become aware that they can fight back and demand both justice and monetary recovery. The flow of cases in the queue for investment arbitrations has grown exponentially reaching tens of thousands per year and no let up is projected. Filled with expert guidance showing investors how arbitration works, INVESTOR'S GUIDE TO LOSS RECOVERY: RIGHTS, MEDIATION, ARBITRATION AND OTHER STRATEGIES (John Wiley & Sons; $75.00; Available Now) provides a focus on all of the investor's options when a conflict arises.
To date, the only reliable resources on securities arbitration are either legal references, which provide no practical application, or sensationalized accounts of how to sue Wall Street. This new release, written by Louis Straney, is filled with expert guidance showing investors how arbitration really works, and how it can work in their favor. Loaded with charts showing the major areas of litigation, proprietary research by the author demonstrating arbitration results, and analysis on how newly enacted regulatory reforms will impact the process and options for financial fraud victims, INVESTOR'S GUIDE TO LOSS RECOVERY presents an approachable and effective process to exercising rights as a victim. Coverage includes:
- Litigation resources and strategies you need to get familiar with
- How to effectively file a claim—and the results to expect
- Detailed scripts of initial attorney interviews in mediation and arbitration
- How to organize the massive amount of documents exchanged between parties
- Personal interviews with securities attorneys, experts, and investors
- How newly enacted regulatory reforms will impact the process and options for financial fraud victims
Investors that have been misled can fight back, persist, and demand both justice and monetary recovery. INVESTOR'S GUIDE TO LOSS RECOVERY equips investors, financial advisors, and attorneys with the expert knowledge, insight, and preparation needed to recover from investment misconduct.
Advanced Praise for Investor's Guide to Loss Recovery
"Louis Straney's Investor's Guide to Loss Recovery is a must-read for any investor. Broker negligence and wrongdoing are significant problems for today's investor. Lou Straney recognizes that investors need to know that they can recover losses caused by brokers and investment firms. This well-organized and thoughtful book is an important guide to the type of help available. The book's straightforward and understandable format makes it easy for the investor to grasp how the recovery process works. Kudos to Lou for shining light where light is much needed!"
—Robert K. Savage, Visiting Clinical Assistant Professor,
Investor Advocacy Clinic, Florida International University College of Law
"Investment fraud is one of the last taboos. Those who have been victimized rarely talk about it and are humiliated—typically by someone they've known and trusted for a long time. Louis Straney pulls away the thick curtains and shines a light on one of the darkest subjects in our culture. What do you do if you (or a client) have been fleeced? Straney will help you find justice and compensation in the midst of a broken system that does little to protect individual investors. This book is essential for anyone interested in investment fraud and deception."
—John F. Wasik, author,
The Cul-de-Sac Syndrome: Turning Around the Unsustainable American Dream
"In this book, Lou Straney has demystified arbitration. I lived a 3-D walkthrough of the arbitration process, and it felt like being with Straney in the arbitration room. This arbitration guide is an extraordinarily relevant demonstration that recovery of losses is possible if conducted properly. It's a must-have for investors!"

"What I can say is that in my situation, where it was a David and Goliath, where I stood alone against a large brokerage firm, Lou revealed more in this book than I'd learned in sixteen years from my broker. This book should have been on my shelf ten years ago!"
