Misconduct & Fraud
The consequences of securities fraud have enormous implications for investors and their futures. It happens when brokers manipulate stocks or fail to properly disclose accurate information about a company’s operations, financials and earnings potential, leaving an unwitting investor holding an empty bag.
Any time a broker engages in deceptive, misleading or improper behavior which causes you financial harm, seek immediate legal council to help protect your interests. You have a right to recover some or all of the money lost at the hands of unscrupulous brokers and or brokerage firms. These disputes frequently involve issues such as:
- mismanagement and misrepresentation
- churning or excessive transactions
- unauthorized trading
- unsuitable investments
