Miami Stockbroker Misconduct Attorneys

Effective Legal Representation for Wronged Investors

Stockbroker misconduct covers a range of actions and omissions that can result in substantial financial losses for investors. These behaviors violate the basic fiduciary duty that stockbrokers, financial advisors, broker-dealers, investment advisors, and banks have to their customers.

These duties require that investment professionals place their clients’ interests ahead of their own. When this duty is betrayed, investors have recourse through claims made against the stockbroker, financial advisor, broker-dealer, investment advisor, or bank. Investment losses caused by stockbroker misconduct may be recovered through mediation, arbitration, or litigation.

Types of Stockbroker Misconduct

Stockbroker misconduct can come in many forms. If you are uncertain whether your broker has engaged in misconduct, you should not hesitate to consult with an attorney at our firm as soon as possible.

Examples of stockbroker misconduct include but are not limited to:

Examples of stockbroker theft include:

  • Withdrawing money from an investor account for the broker’s personal use
  • “Borrowing” money from an investor account with promises to repay it at a future date
  • Misappropriating funds
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Transferring cash or stocks without authorization
  • Selling outside investments that are not part of the brokerage firm’s offerings
  • Affinity fraud (investment scams directed toward certain religious or ethnic groups, professions, or the elderly)
  • Forging checks

Unfortunately, many brokers, brokerage firms and financial advisors engage in unethical and unprofessional behavior. Broker theft, forgery, financial fraud and other forms of criminal activity do occur that taint the entire profession. When broker theft occurs, resolute legal action should follow under the guidance of a trusted Miami broker theft and financial fraud attorney experienced in securities arbitration, litigation, and financial industry legal matters.

FINRA Rules and Legal Protection for Investors

The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") writes and enforces rules for stockbrokers in the interest of protecting consumers. If a broker or brokerage firm fails to comply with these rules and regulations, investors may be entitled to file a claim for damages in order to recover their investment losses.

Using FINRA's BrokerCheck tool, you can browse the list of brokers who have been barred by FINRA. You can also search for individuals by name to determine if the SEC ("U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission") has brought formal actions against them.

If you have been wronged by an investor, you have a right to legal representation. Levin Law is here to help investors navigate these complex legal matters and pursue the compensation they deserve.
