Summary

Sam Edwards is a partner at SSEK and has developed a wide-ranging practice representing individuals and institutions from the United States and almost every continent in the world in investment and financial disputes. Over the last decade, that representation has included hundreds of clients who range from retirees that have lost their life savings, to community banks and credit unions who have been defrauded by Wall Street in investment schemes or bad products, to states and municipalities defrauded by investment banks.

The cases Mr. Edwards has worked on include claims for unsuitable investment recommendations, churning, misrepresentations and outright fraud. The investments involved have varied from simple stocks and bonds to more complicated annuities, options and futures to even extremely complex derivatives such as structured products, CMOs, IOs, Inverse IOs, CDOs, CLOs, synthetic CDOs, Credit Default Swaps and hedge funds. Mr. Edwards has represented clients before FINRA (previously NASD and the NYSE), AAA and JAMS arbitration panels, as well as state and federal courts all around the country.

Mr. Edwards is an active member of the Public Investors Arbitration Bar Association (“PIABA”), working with attorneys across the nation to protect investor rights. He is currently a member of the PIABA Board of Directors and was the previous editor and chief of the PIABA Bar Journal where he is also a regular contributing author. Along with the PIABA Bar Journal, Mr. Edwards’ articles have been published in the Practicing Law Institute’s handbooks for securities and a number of other resources. Mr. Edwards is also a frequent lecturer on all issues related investment disputes and securities law, helping to train attorneys nationwide to represent wronged investors.
