FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (January 13, 2016) – Silver Law Group and the Law Firm of David R. Chase, P.A. announce their investigation into the suitability of recommendations made by Morgan Stanley financial advisors to their retail clients to purchase Seadrill, Cobalt International Energy and other oil and gas investments, including master limited partnerships (MLPs).
The Law Firms are investigating whether certain Morgan Stanley financial advisors made unsuitable recommendations to purchase Seadrill, Cobalt and other oil and gas investments, to those who were not appropriate to assume the risk and volatility of these securities, particularly elderly investors living on income. The Law Firms are also investigating whether clients’ portfolios were improperly over-concentrated in oil and gas investments based upon their advisor’s recommendations.
Seadrill and Cobalt, along with oil and gas investments generally, have endured devastating losses in value over the last year. Investors who have suffered declines in their oil and gas investments solicited by their stock broker are encouraged to contact the law firms to explore their legal rights, and the potential to recover their losses. Cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, meaning no attorney’s fee is owed if there is no recovery.
