Mortgage-Backed Securities and Collateralized Debt Obligations

Mortgage-Backed Securities and Collateralized Debt Obligations

Purchasers of Mortgage-Backed Securities ("MBS"), Collateralized Debt Obligations ("CDOs"), and other types of structured products may have claims against sellers and ratings agencies which rated these products.

Chitwood Harley Harnes LLP brings twenty-five years of experience representing institutional investors in complex litigation to the investigation of these claims.  We have learned that purchasers of these financial products sometimes did not receive adequate disclosures regarding the riskiness of the underlying assets, and that even sophisticated investors were often misled by sellers and ratings agencies as to the quality of the underlying assets.

In some cases, sellers of MBS and CDOs deliberately transferred low-quality subprime assets into MBS and CDOs to be sold to unsuspecting investors.

For more information on Chitwood Harley's representation of purchasers of MBS and CDOs, including how MBS and CDO purchasers can obtain a no-cost, no obligation independent evaluation of potential claims, please submit the following form:
