We represent investors across the United States as well as international investors who are protected under U.S. law. We have recovered millions of dollars in losses for our clients.

What Is Suitability?

When your stockbroker recommends that you buy or sell a particular stock, mutual fund or other security, he or she must have a reasonable basis for believing that the investment is suitable for you. Your broker must consider:

  • Your tolerance for risk

  • Your income and net worth
  • Your financial needs
  • Your investment objectives
  • Your other security holdings

For example, if you are a retiree, volatile stocks and bonds may not be appropriate for your age, income needs and situation in life.

Suitability Review

Our lawyers will conduct a preliminary review of your investment account for stockbroker violations of the suitability rule. There is no fee for this preliminary account review. We accept select suitability claims on a contingency fee basis.
