Skilled Stock Market Loss Attorney
As an investor, you need to be aware of possible broker fraud and misconduct. Our stockbroker fraud lawyers have knowledge and experience in the stock market, and they understand the cases that relate to stockbroker fraud and misconduct.
Investors typically rely on brokerage and investments firms to advise them about investment matters. Unfortunately, stockbrokers and investment advisers sometimes engage in misconduct such as fraud, negligence, unauthorized trading, which results in investment losses.
At the Doss Firm, we understand how devastating and overwhelming stockbroker fraud and misconduct results can be. That is why we do our best to help clients recover those losses.
Stockbroker Fraud and Misconduct
It is the responsibility of the broker and/or investment adviser to offer suitable investment recommendations to investor clients. Investment advisers are fiduciaries, meaning that they are legally obligated to act in the best interest of the client, and any investment recommendations must be suitable based on the client’s financial situation. Unsuitable recommendations that lead to investment losses provide grounds for filing a securities arbitration claim or court action to recover those losses.
Another type of broker/adviser misconduct is unauthorized trading, which occurs when a trade is made without the prior consent of the investor. Unauthorized trading that leads to an investment loss provides grounds for filing a securities arbitration claim or court action to recover those losses.
How Should Investors Handle Investment Losses?
If you were to go to the brokerage firm and threaten to do something terrible to them if they don’t pay you back your investments, you might end up being the one in the wrong. Plus, the brokerage firm can sue you. However, that doesn’t mean that you should sit back and let your losses go down the drain. Instead, you can talk to a professional broker fraud lawyer to help you with the whole process.
Our lawyers handle every type of stockbroker fraud and misconduct, and we will represent you in court regardless of your type of case. As long as it is related to the stockbroker fraud and misconduct, and we have proof of them dealing in shady trading, you can be sure of recovering your losses when you work with us.
If you have suffered an investment loss, you should consult with an experienced attorney instead of attempting to negotiate with the firm. In our experience, investors who engage in self-help do not help their case and often harm their case. Representation by an experienced attorney is the essential first step in taking action to recover your losses caused by broker or adviser misconduct. The Doss Firm has the necessary experience to help you.
