Preliminary Claim Review
A prospective client will fill out our questionnaire and submit available year-end and monthly account statements along with trade confirmations. If you do not possess this information, your brokerage firm must provide this to you. We can assist you in procuring these documents from the brokerage firm. Documents will be analyzed to identify your risk tolerance and investment objectives. This review will tell us and you who is at fault and whether you may have a case worth pursuing.
Once preliminarily qualified, the client will enter into a retainer agreement with Cold Spring Advisory Group and remit the agreed upon consulting fee. Cold Spring Advisory Group is now officially under contract and will be your consulting firm to perform a full case analysis.
Formal Case Analysis
A detailed analysis of your investments and portfolio is conducted to determine the details that facilitated your loss, a clear calculation of damages and potential broker liability. Cold Spring Advisory Group will conduct an in depth review of all trading statements, new client application forms, risk disclosure statements and letters and communications between you and your former advisors.
