As an investor, you have a right to expect your broker or investment advisor to behave in an ethical and responsible manner. In too many cases, however, the people we trust to invest our money and protect our retirement funds take actions that serve their own interests instead of the investor’s. In cases like these, the need for aggressive and effective investment and securities fraud lawyers is paramount. Parties responsible for stockbroker or investment fraud must be brought to light.

We can help if you’ve suffered investment losses because of:

  • Junk Bonds & Funds

    Every bond that is offered for sale is given a credit rating. In order for a bank to be able to sell a bond, the bond must be of investment grade.

  • Puerto Rico Bond Default

    As fears over Puerto Rico’s enormous debt and struggling economy rose, there has been a substantial decline in the value of Puerto Rico bonds.

  • Ponzi Schemes

    Ponzi schemes are a type of fraud involving the payment of dividends to investors from the money put in by subsequent investors.

  • Unsuitable Investments

    The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), formerly the National Association Of Securities Dealers (NASD), and other regulatory organizations have specific suitability rules that govern a broker’s actions.

  • Fraud or Misrepresentation

    Excessive use of margin refers to a situation where you buy a stock partially with your own money and partially with borrowed money from your brokerage firm.

  • Lack of Diversification

    It is the responsibility of your broker or investment advisor to recommend suitable investments that will help you reach your financial goals.

  • Selling Away

    Brokers are only allowed to sell securities offered by his or her brokerage firm. The firm researches every security to ensure that it is sound and that it is suitable for the firm’s client base.
