Dedicated to Recovering Your Losses

Walton US Land Fund 2 LP

Have you lost money your advisor recommended you invest in Walton US Land Fund 2 LP?  You may be able to recover your losses by filing a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the Walton investment.

Walton International is a privately-owned real estate investment firm that creates and sells, through brokerage firms, interests in real estate investments.  Walton Land Fund 2, LP is a private placement that was incorporated in 2011.  A private placement is an investment that is not publicly traded, so an investor is not easily able to sell these investments.  They are “illiquid”.  Like other Walton real estate partnerships, Walton US Land Fund 2 LP has not performed well.  It is a risky and complicated investment which can only be sold to high net worth, sophisticated investors.  

However, Diane A Nygaard represents many investors who are not wealthy, nor sophisticated, whose brokers recommended a Walton limited partnership.  As a result, their money is locked up, and they cannot sell the investment, despite the fact that it does not pay income.

If you have been sold a Walton partnership, please contact Diane A Nygaard for help at or complete the form at the bottom of this page.

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.
