How Stockbroker Fraud Is Handled

Stockbroker fraud is regulated by complex federal laws, state laws, previous court decisions, and agency rules and regulations. Only an experienced stockbroker fraud lawyer understands the interplay of these complex laws and is capable of applying these laws to recover losses on behalf of victims of stockbroker fraud or investment fraud. If the procedural rules for filing a claim for stockbroker fraud are not followed, the victim runs a risk of having the claim dismissed and being unable to recover the losses caused by stockbroker fraud.

What Type of Lawyer Do I Need?

When choosing a lawyer to file a claim against a stockbroker for misrepresenting bad investments, the lawyer must have extensive experience in handling investment fraud cases because of the complexity of stockbroker fraud and investment fraud laws. Lawyers and law firms that handle multiple types of cases are not as effective as lawyers and law firms that exclusively handle investment fraud cases. Lawyers that only accept representation of investment fraud cases have sufficient knowledge and experience handling investment fraud cases to be able to recover the losses for victims of stockbroker fraud most effectively.

Misrepresenting Bad Investment Claims

At a minimum, an investor has an expectation of fair dealing and truthfulness when dealing with a stockbroker. Stockbrokers are licensed professionals. Their conduct is regulated by FINRA which is the financial industry regulatory authority. In 1934, Congress created the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC governs the activities of brokers and brokerage firms. The SEC makes it illegal for a stockbroker to misrepresent an investment to an investor.

Stockbrokers may misrepresent bad investments to investors, and the investor can suffer financial losses, sometimes their entire life savings, because of the bad investment. FINRA rules and the SEC prohibit a broker from misrepresenting a bad investment. The person misrepresenting a bad investment is putting his or her interest before interest of the investor. This is a violation of the duty that a broker owes a client.

Brokerage firms are responsible for overseeing the conduct of the stock broker they employ. Sometimes brokerage firms force their brokers to push bad investments on their clients. Unscrupulous brokers and brokerage firms push bad investments because of greed. They can make money for each transaction. There could be some sort of bias by the broker or brokerage firm in favor of a certain investment. There are multiple reasons why a stockbroker would misrepresent a bad investment, but the misrepresentation of the bad investment is always for the benefit of the stock broker or the brokerage firm. Whether the offender of the stockbroker fraud is the broker or the brokerage firm, federal laws, state laws, and agency regulations and rules hold both entities accountable for misrepresentations of bad investment.

Legal Action You Can Take

A victim of fraud has many remedies to recover the losses incurred because of the misrepresented investment. The victim can arbitrate a claim against the stockbroker or brokerage firm or file a lawsuit in federal or state court to recover the losses. The procedural laws that govern the process of filing a claim for stockbroker fraud are very complicated. However, a competent and experienced investment fraud lawyer can navigate these complex laws to help a victim recover the losses from fraud.
