FINRA Securities Arbitration & Investment Fraud Lawyers
Have you been the victim of investment fraud?
Recover your Investment Losses. If you have suffered damages as a result of fraud, unsuitable or negligent investment advice, the sale of defective investments, self-dealing, theft, or other wrongful conduct, you may have a claim against your stockbroker or investment professional and their firm. Victims of securities and investment fraud may recover their damages through securities arbitration.
Investors have a right to the truth. Both novice and highly sophisticated investors have a right to to rely upon the investment advice of their stockbroker or investment professional and to believe that investment advice rendered by these professionals is not the product of negligence nor is tainted by financial self interest.
The federal securities laws require the full and fair disclosure of all material facts in connection with the sale of securities. Stockbrokers and the brokerage firms with whom they are associated, have a special duty not only conduct meaningful due diligence with respect to the securities sold by them, but to also to only recommend those securities to investors that are financially capable or suitable to undertake such risks.
However, this is not always the case. Investors are sometimes provided false promises. Sometimes investors make life changing decisions based upon these false promises. The material risks associated with a particular security or a particular investment strategy are sometimes never even partially disclosed. Many stockbrokers and investment professionals do not fully understand many of the complex investment products that they recommend. Instead of being trained about a particular product, and its potential risks, they are only trained or told how to sell a particular product. Often these recommendations are in the best financial interest of the stockbroker and the brokerage firm and are not necessarily in the best interest of the customer.
Brokerage firms have a duty to supervise the activities of their registered representatives, to safeguard customer accounts from most often their own brokers, and to prevent fraud and the sale of unapproved investments to customers. Sometimes brokerage firms fail to supervise the activities of their geographically dispersed “independent” branch offices and to also fail to provide any on-site supervision of the registered representatives at these offices. As a result, sometimes customers fall prey to the sale of outside investments, promissory notes, off-shore investments and classic Ponzi schemes.
