Filing a Fraud Claim with the Help of a Securities Attorney
As any investor knows, the stock market experiences its ups and downs. Therefore, simply experiencing a loss does not necessarily mean you are the victim of fraud. If your broker fails to return your calls, if you are experiencing loss during an up market or if you experience a significant drop in the value of your account in a short period of time, on the other hand, it may be time to hire a securities lawyer. Some common forms of fraud that a securities attorney can address include:
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty – your broker is placed in a position of trust and confidence. Violating this trust results in a Breach of Fiduciary Duty.
- Conflict of Interest – when your broker or brokerage firm acts in their own interest and places their interests ahead of yours.
- Churning – excessive trading in your account that is done in an effort to increase the broker’s commissions, causing you to lose money due to excessive fees.
- Failure to Diversify – your broker is expected to reduce your risk by investing in a variety of areas suitable for you dependent on your risk tolerance and investment objectives. Putting all of your assets in a single stock or industry increases your risk of loss should that stock or industry suffer a downturn of losses.
- Failure to Supervise – if management fails to monitor its brokers’ trading activity and investor losses, your securities attorney may be able to pursue a Failure to Supervise claim.
- Ineptitude or Malpractice – malpractice suits involve the broker giving incorrect, unfounded, deceptive or misleading advice that results in a poor investment and loss of a significant amount of money.
- Omission of Facts – unlike Malpractice, Omission of Facts involves intentionally misleading you or failing to disclose important information about an investment.
- Trading Without Permission/Unauthorized Trading – a broker cannot make trades against your will or without your knowledge or permission.
- Unsuitability – investment recommendations that are not consistent with (unsuitable) your stated investment objectives, goals, risk tolerance and background.
- Misrepresentation – misrepresentation involves giving out wrong information or concealing true information, such as publicly supporting a stock while privately admitting it is a risky buy.
In addition to filing claims against a stockbroker for these reasons, your securities attorney may be able to file for enhanced damages if you are an elderly or disabled individual.
