Stockbroker Fraud Attorney

As an investor, you depend on your stockbroker to act ethically and to competently manage your money. Unfortunately, that trust isn’t always rewarded. In fact, some stockbrokers intentionally mismanage funds for their own benefit at the expense of the investors they’re supposed to help.

If you’ve suffered losses due to stockbroker fraud, Morgan & Morgan is here to help. As America’s largest plaintiffs’ firm, we have the backing and experience to take on virtually any wrongdoer.

What Is Stockbroker Fraud?

Stockbrokers don’t always act in the best interest of their clients. Instead, they might engage in unethical or illegal behavior to profit at their expense. Stockbroker fraud is a term that encompasses a wide range of deceptive practices. They include:

  • Churning: Sometimes brokers make excessive and unnecessary trades from a client’s account for the sole purpose of generating commissions. This is referred to as churning, and is a breach of the broker’s responsibilities to the client.
  • Unauthorized Trading: If a broker makes trades in a customer’s account without their knowledge, permission, or authorization, it’s considered unauthorized trading. This might include the purchase of stocks, securities, and other financial products without the investor’s consent.
  • Misrepresentation: An investment broker might try to sell a client on a stock by making some sort of false statement or omitting information about the transaction. This is called misrepresentation and is one of the most common forms of securities fraud.
  • Overconcentration: Without a diversified portfolio, investors can face dire financial consequences. Overconcentration occurs when a stockbroker heavily invests in one class, sector, or asset type.
  • Unsuitable Investments: Stockbrokers need to have a reasonable basis for believing an investment strategy or transaction is suitable for the customer. They must consider the customer’s investment profile (e.g., financial state, reasons for investment, goals, risk tolerance) when making decisions.

The above is far from an exhaustive list. If you believe you’ve been defrauded or deceived by your stockbroker, contact our attorneys right away.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
