Investigation into Patriot Coal Bond Default

Have you suffered losses in Patriot Coal bonds? If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses with a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that recommended the bonds to you.

Founded in 2007, Patriot Coal Corporation is a coal-mining company based in St. Louis, Missouri. Unfortunately, continued depressed coal prices took a tole on the company. Back in May, Patriot Coal filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization.

Bonds used to be one of the safest investments out there. However, in this economic climate, defaults are on the rise and even now some bonds come with substantial risks.

The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending junk bonds to their clients.

Brokerage-firms and investment advisers are required to make investment recommendations that are suitable for their clients in light of their clients’ particular investment situation – net worth, investment objectives, income, and investment experience. Brokerage firms or advisors who sell junk bonds to unsuitable investors or fail to adequately disclose the risks of the investments can be held accountable for losses suffered through a FINRA arbitration claim.
