Securities Investigation: MDS 2019-Marcellus Shale Development LP   

Are you concerned about your investment in MDS 2019-Marcellus Shale Development LP? If so, the securities attorneys at the White Law Group may be able to help you by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.   

The White Law Group is investigating potential claims involving brokerage firms who may have improperly recommended high-risk private placements to investors. Investments such as these are typically sold by brokerage firms in exchange for a large up-front commission. High fees can range from 7-10%, as well as additional “due diligence fees” that can range from 1-3%.    

MDS Energy Development partnerships drill and produce natural gas from wells in the Marcellus Shale play, according to its website. MDS 2019-Marcellus Shale Development LP, an oil and gas limited partnership, filed a Form D to raise capital from investors in 2019. The total offering amount sold to investors was purportedly $68,639,635.  

The problem with private placement investments is that they typically involve a high degree of risk. They are also often sold as unregistered securities which lack the same regulatory oversight as more traditional investment products like stocks or bonds.  To learn more, please see: Regulation D Private Placement Fraud Attorneys   

Potential Lawsuits to Recover Financial Losses 

Brokerage firms have two main duties in recommending investments.  First, brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on any product they recommend. Second, brokerage firms are required to ensure that all recommendations made are suitable for their client in light of the client’s age, investment experience, net worth, income, and investment objectives.  

FINRA Dispute Resolution is an arbitration venue for investors with claims against their brokerage firm or financial professional. ?It provides investors with an opportunity to attempt to recoup their investment losses without filing such claims in court.
