I was stuck with over $100k in securities courtesy of an over-enthusiastic financial advisor and was unsuccessful in finding solid legal advice in Atlanta. I googled "securities litigation" and found Diane Nygaard in Kansas City. What a pleasant surprise and great find!

Diane not only provided a much-needed sympathetic ear for my stupidity but followed up with a cohesive, intelligent strategy that resulted in a most satisfactory settlement! I had given up on any recovery of funds.  However, as a result of Diane's actions, I recovered 85% of my loss with legal fees amounting to a mere 12%. Needless to say I was thrilled and would invite anyone with securities issues to hand them over to Diane with complete confidence that your interests will be well represented.

Diane A. Nygaard was co-counsel in this shareholder derivative case that resulted in a $200 million class action settlement on behalf of stockholders of Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI).  Nygaard served as co-lead counsel for the shareholders of Kinder Morgan. A buyout group lead by KMI's largest stockholder and Chairman, Richard Kinder, took the company private in 2006. The KMI Buyout was one of the largest management-led buyouts in corporate history, which shareholders challenged because insiders paid shareholders less for their stock than was reasonable. After protracted litigation, the Defendants agreed to pay the shareholders $200 million more for their shares. This amount was distributed to Kinder Morgan shareholders.

It is difficult to believe that someone you have trusted with your savings might have abused that trust. However, the securities laws require active supervision of all investment advisors. Most cases I have handled could have been prevented had the brokerage firm or advisory firm complied with the supervisory regulations. Cases can proceed against the firm. It is not legally necessary to name the individual broker.
