Are You the Victim of Securities Fraud or Misconduct?
Weltz Law proudly represents investors who have suffered losses in their savings or retirement funds because a brokerage firm or financial advisor committed fraud, acted negligently, or failed to act in their best interest. Our lawyers can review and analyze your financial statements to determine if securities fraud was committed.
We also work closely with financial experts to calculate the extent of the damages incurred due to securities fraud. If we determine your broker or financial advisor acted inappropriately or violated their fiduciary duty, then we will file a Statement of Claim with FINRA and represent you in all hearings.
We take on the following securities fraud cases:
- Unauthorized Trading: Stockbrokers must obtain your permission before buying or selling securities on your behalf.
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty: This occurs when a securities broker fails to act in their client’s best interest.
- Unsuitability: You might be entitled to legal relief through a securities fraud lawsuit if you suffered losses because a financial advisor recommended securities that did not meet your risk tolerance and investment objective.
- Churning: This occurs when a stockbroker recommends frequent trading to generate extra commissions for themselves.
- Over-Concentration: If a stockbroker fails to properly diversify your investments and your account is exposed to only a few securities or a single sector of the economy, then you might be able to file a lawsuit to recover your losses.
- Margin Claims: Did your broker recommend you borrow on margin to purchase securities and then require you to sell the securities, without prior notice, to pay off the margin balance? If you believe your broker did this solely to generate revenue for the brokerage firm, then reach out today so we can determine if you have a lawsuit.
- Ponzi-Schemes: We proudly represent clients across the nation who were victims of Ponzi schemes and other types of financial theft.
- Stock Broker Negligence: Brokers who are negligent in handling investments or provide incompetent advice can be held accountable for the financial harm they have caused to their investors.
- Stock Broker Misconduct: When a broker violates their duties to you as the client or engages in fraud and misconduct, you have a right to seek compensation for the monetary losses your broker has caused you.
- Alternative Investment Product Scams: If you suffered financial losses from alternative product fraud such as REITs, hedge funds, promissory notes, private placements, annuities, etc., we can help you seek damages against the broker or financial advisor.
- Punitive Damages: As a part of your claim, we may also pursue punitive damages on your behalf if the case meets these requirements. These types of damages are intended to punish the wrongdoer for their egregious actions.
