Consumer Fraud Attorneys Work to Resolve Investment Disputes

Unfortunately, innocent investors get “taken to the cleaners” so to speak every day.  Whether you suspect that you have been defrauded, or are in a dispute with your brokerage firm, stockbroker or investment advisor, it is definitely to your advantage to consult with an experienced investor fraud attorney.  Whether you have lost a small portion of your investment or a substantial amount of money, a skilled consumer securities fraud lawyer can help determine where the fraud occurred, and help you recover your losses.

Stockbrokers and brokerage firms may engage in churning, misrepresentation of the investments they recommend or recommendations that are not suitable for you, over-concentration and more.  While investing in any stock, bond, commodity or other product never comes with a guarantee that your investment will grow exponentially, often times broker misconduct is to blame when you experience a substantial or devastating loss.  Consumer fraud lawyers are skilled experts, able to wade through the complexities of investing in order to determine who may be held accountable for your losses.

Some of the securities firms that have been involved in litigation or arbitration due to disputes include A.G. Edwards, Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo Securities, UBS, and Charles Schwab & Co., Inc.  Even investment giants whose names you trust can not always be a guarantee of growth.  You may have invested in order to protect your retirement future financially, to pay for your children’s college or simply to build up a nest egg for any “rainy days” you may experience during your lifetime.  Regardless of the reason you invested, when you suspect fraud or are certain of fraudulent activity, a capable consumer fraud attorney will work aggressively to obtain the best possible outcome for you as an investor.

Stockbrokers, financial advisors and others who engage in deceitful or underhanded conduct unfortunately make potential investors a bit suspicious of all brokerage firms and financial planners.  There are advisors and brokers who are completely honest, and who are dedicated to helping their clients’ investments grow.  However, the old saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover” has never been more true than in the investment/securities industry.  When you’ve been a victim of investment loss and suspect that the loss is not one that happened in the normal course of business, a trusted consumer fraud attorney will protect your legal rights, investigate, thoroughly analyze the situation and provide you with unparalleled legal counsel, whether it becomes necessary to pursue litigation or arbitration.
