United Development Funding Loss Recovery: Peiffer Rosca Wolf Attorneys Taking Multi-Faceted Approach to Assist UDF Investors

The Peiffer Rosca Wolf securities attorneys are taking a multi-faceted approach in helping United Development Funding investors recover their losses. First, the Peiffer Rosca Wolf securities attorneys are working at a class action to include United Development Funding investors who invested in a number of programs, not just United Development Funding IV.

Second, the Peiffer Rosca Wolf securities lawyers are preparing to file claims against several broker-dealer firms that recommended and sold United Development Funding investments to investors. Such claims will be filed in FINRA arbitration and brought individually or as group cases against broker-dealer firms that sold United Development Funding investments to investors. Brokerage firms have a duty to conduct adequate due diligence on new investment products before recommending such investments to their customers.

United Development Funding in Hot Water after Allegations of Ponzi Scheme, FBI Search

The recent issues involving United Development Funding come in the wake of an investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission that started in 2014, allegations by a hedge fund manager that United Development Funding is running a "Ponzi-like" real estate investment scheme, and a recent FBI raid at the UDF offices.

United Development Funding's top officers were recently subpoenaed to provide business documents to a federal grand jury. This comes after trading was suspended by NASDAQ in United Development Funding IV on February 18, 2016, following a drop in UDF IV's share price to $3.20 and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's raid of the United Development Funding office in Texas earlier that same day.
