Investment Fraud Attorneys
Financial advisors encourage investors to believe in them, building relationships with investors and relying on a foundation of trust and confidence to conduct business. Sadly, there will always be brokers who abuse this trust and use the broker-investor relationship to their own ends. Brokers and brokerage firms often claim they act in the best interests of their investors when, in reality, they may convince investors to purchase investments and securities with incomplete, deficient or misleading information or investments that unsuitable, which is to say are not appropriate for their clients.
When broker misconduct or deceit results in investor financial losses, victims need a team of high-quality attorneys they can rely on for representation. There aren’t many such law firms available, however. In the U.S., there are only about 300 law firms who tackle this kind of work, and of those, very few do it full-time. Erez Law has the depth, resources and personnel that other firms – both large and small – don’t possess. Our firm has the manpower and infrastructure other firms lack.
Helping You Fight Dishonest Brokers
Erez Law serves investors who have suffered losses at the hands of fraudulent and dishonest brokers from across the U.S. including Puerto Rico and nations across Latin America, like Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela. Many people lose their retirement savings and investments without realizing they were working with a bad broker. While stock and bond prices do rise and fall, some losses stem from broker misconduct – not the natural market tide. The experienced lawyers at Erez Law can help clients tell the difference between honest and fraudulent losses.
Erez Law understands that investors have worked for years and often decades saving for retirement, children’s education, to support family members, to accumulate wealth, to create a sense of financial security or to leave behind a legacy. Dishonest brokerage firms and brokers can dash those aspirations with just a few bad recommendations or actions. Investors that sustained investment losses may be the victims of brokerage firms and financial advisors that are incompetent or acted intentionally to mislead their customers.
Whether by negligence or fraud, brokerage firms and financial advisors that have failed to follow industry standards and applicable rules and laws may be responsible for their customer’s losses. Erez Law specializes in representing investors in cases to recover investment losses when caused by wrongful conduct. Erez Law represents individual investors, retirees, trusts, pension plans, partnerships, family partnerships, family offices and ultra-high net worth individuals.
