What Is Stockbroker Fraud?

Stockbroker fraud can cover many different forms of misconduct, from lying to you about an investment to steering you to investments for the broker's financial gain without regard to your investment objectives. Examples of stockbroker fraud include:

  • Excessive buying and selling of stocks to generate commissions (churning)
  • Selling you unsuitable investments based on your age, tolerance for risk and investment goals
  • Theft of your funds
  • Unauthorized trades

Our attorneys will conduct a preliminary investment account review to determine whether or not your broker may have engaged in fraud. There is no fee for preliminary review. We accept select stockbroker fraud claims on a contingency fee basis.

What Is Stockbroker Misrepresentation?

Every investment has risks and benefits. If your broker did not explain investment risks or misrepresented an investment, you may have a cause of action for stockbroker fraud.

Our lawyers will review investment literature and how the security was explained to you to determine whether your broker may have misrepresented the investment.
