Investor Fraud

 

When your broker displays negligence or misconduct that costs you to suffer losses from your investments, you need a trained attorney who understands the legal consequences of investor fraud. Whether you are an individual who has invested in the stock market or you represent a corporate entity or large investment fund that has been defrauded, our team at Nation LAwyers can help.

 

Investor fraud can occur in all types of situations, through negligence or malice. If you have invested in any of the following, call our team today for assistance with recovering your losses:

 

  • Stocks
  • Bonds
  • mutual funds
  • Currencies
  • real estate investment trusts (REITs), 
  • And More

 

Whether you have suffered significant investment losses, or you have noticed odd things on your brokerage account, our attorneys can help. We will investigate your trades and determine if your broker or financial advisor has led you astray.

 

My Financial Advisor Will Not Listen To Me

 

Your investment objectives and tolerance for risk should be at the forefront of your financial advisor’s mind. They should always put your needs and the needs of your business first.

However, if, for whatever reason, they do not disclose the risks associated with your investment, causing you to lose money, you may have a case. 

 

At Nation Lawyers, our experienced attorneys will review your case to determine if your financial advisor or broker committed securities fraud and file a Statement of Claim with FINRA to help you begin the process of recovering damages. Our team will help you throughout the entire FINRA hearing, from discovery to documentation, and more.

 

With What Types of Investor Fraud Can You Help?

 

Our aggressive team of attorneys at Nation Lawyers can help you with all types of investor fraud, whether it is through negligence or misconduct. Our goal is to help you recover your losses quickly and efficiently so you can go back to living your life without having to worry about your financial future.

 

At Nation Lawyers, we can help you with:

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty - Your broker must act in your best interest at all times as part of their fiduciary duty. If they put their financial interests ahead of yours, then you may have the legal right to sue them for breach of fiduciary duty. 

 

  • Failure to Diversify - If your financial advisor fails to diversify your portfolio properly and over-concentrates your investments into a few poorly picked securities or stocks that end up losing your money, you may have a case.

 

  • Unauthorized Trading - A stockbroker needs permission before making trades on your behalf, or else they may be breaking the law. 

 

  • Margin Claims - If your broker runs a margin scheme telling you to borrow on margin and then to sell the securities to pay the balance, you may have a claim. This type of fraud is usually done to generate money for the brokerage firm at the cost of your financial stability.

 

We also will fight for you if you are the victim of a Ponzi-Scheme, Mutual Fund, Bond, or Annuity Switching, CHurning, or any other type of investor fraud. Our team of financial experts will work to recover what rightly belongs to you.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How do I know if my losses were caused by my broker or naturally by the market?

 

Losses are a natural part of investing and are bound to happen. But sometimes they do occur because of investor fraud. You should contact our attorney to review your financial transactions to determine what has happened.

 

Is there a statute of limitations for how long I have to file a claim?

 

State and federal regulations do place a statute of limitations on your claims; however, even if it has been a while, you should still contact an attorney to review.

 

I think I fell for a “pump and dump” scheme, can you help?

 

Yes, we can. A pump and dump scheme is when a promoter sells a company that is not as valuable as it may seem at first. In the end, only the promoters make any money. If you feel you have fallen for a pump and dump scheme, contact us right away.

 

How do I know if my financial advisor is committing fraud?

 

There is no way to know for sure whether or not your financial advisor is committing fraud. However, one sign is if they give a guarantee of a return on your investment.

I’m not one to leave reviews but I could not keep this to myself. After years of struggling and mismanaging my credit I decided to give this firm a try. What did I have to lose? I tried EVERYTHING to get my credit in line and failed every time. With a little time and patience I got the results I’ve been needing. My disputes were almost immediately addressed and help was finally here. The agent who handled my account was extremely helpful but more importantly communicative. Waiting for an update on your credit can sometimes become
frustrating but when you have an agent that communicates well the time just seems to fly by. Words are not enough explain my gratitude. I’m getting closer to achieving my goal of being a homeowner and it’s all thanks to you. Thank you John! Will recommend to family and friends who need share the same struggles. Life changer, thank you.
