Stock Broker Misconduct Lawyer

Have you recently uncovered disastrous investment losses? Do you suspect that your financial planner’s conduct had something to do with it? If so, an experienced stock broker misconduct attorney could help you seek the money that’s rightfully yours.

Stock broker misconduct and that of their brokerage firms and financial planning institutions is far more common than you might think. Often, only once an investor has endured considerable losses are these schemes brought to light.

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) takes broker misconduct very seriously, and filing an arbitration claim can be the first step in being repaid for your damages.

But bringing a claim against an irresponsible broker and/or their large financial corporation can be overwhelming. Don’t go at it alone. Contact a respected stock broker misconduct lawyer at Wolper Law Firm for assistance in bringing these conniving brokers to justice for the losses you have had to cope with.

What Are Some Examples of Stock Broker Negligence?

Stock brokers are often savvy talkers and may try to explain away your losses as common or part of the risk in being an investor. Sadly, this is a common way for crooked brokers to continue defrauding investors until the losses are so exorbitant that they are no longer easily explained.

With this in mind, here are some of the most common types of stock broker misconduct so you can have a better idea of when you might have been taken advantage of by a commission-driven broker:

  • Lack of diversification
  • Selling away
  • Churning
  • Unauthorized trading
  • Unsuitable trades
  • Failure to supervise
  • Investing on a margin

Steps to Take to Recover Your Stock Losses after Broker Misconduct

Once you have discovered considerable stock and/or investment losses, your first call should be to an experienced lawyer. Your attorney can then take a look at your case and either begin investigating to determine if negligence or misconduct has occurred or compiling evidence to support your FINRA arbitration claim.

Then, you can file a statement of claim with FINRA. This is your complaint against the stock broker and will contain all relevant information about your case, including the extent of your stock losses and a description of the misconduct that the broker engaged in that caused your loss. From there, you’ll be given a hearing where both you and the broker or their firm will present your case.

If the arbitrator or arbitrators determine that your case warrants the repayment of your losses and any other damages you might have endured, the responsible party will then have a maximum of thirty days to provide you with the money you are owed.
