Ponzi Scheme Defense
At Bachner & Associates, P.C. we handle a wide range of white collar defense cases, including those involving allegations of operating a Ponzi scheme.
A Ponzi scheme is a type of pyramid scheme in which the operator solicits investors and promises them a profitable return on investment in a stock, hedge fund or any other investment vehicle. But instead of paying investors with proceeds from actual growth, the operator takes money from new investors to pay the old ones.
Naturally, this process can only go on for so long, and the operator and investors at the top of the pyramid are the only participants who see any profit.
Due to recent high-profile Ponzi scheme cases, law enforcement officials are cracking down heavily on any type of investment plan that has the slightest indications of being a Ponzi scheme.
If you have been accused of engaging in this type of activity, our attorneys are here to help you build a strong and proactive criminal defense.
