Attorney for Claims Against Stockbrokers Or Investment Advisors
If you have suffered serious investment losses that can be attributed to receiving poor, inaccurate, misleading, fraudulent or unsuitable advice given to you by your stockbroker or investment advisor, regarding investments in your investment or retirement accounts, such as overly aggressive stocks, poorly designed or heavily concentrated investment portfolios, overpriced or ill-advised limited partnership interests or other alternative or non-conventional investments, you may have rights to recover for your losses from your stockbroker or investment advisor, and should consult with an experienced attorney who understands the complexities involved in investor representation. At Cristiano Law, we understand how important your retirement and life savings are to you, and how devastating catastrophic losses in your investment account can be, particularly as individuals approach or reach retirement, with little or no ability to recover from such losses. Claims of this sort are typically determined by arbitration before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). We have significant experience in such and will diligently pursue well-founded claims involving significant losses.
Securities fraud, also called stock or investment fraud; is the use of deceptive practices in the stock or commodities market to induce investors into making sale or purchase decisions based on false or misleading information. The results involve a financial loss and the practice violates securities laws. Securities or investment fraud can involve actual theft from an investor, which could be considered embezzlement by stockbrokers. Other types of investment fraud include the manipulation of stocks or misstating the financial reports or health of a public company and providing false information to a corporate auditor. Other forms of securities fraud includes insider trading, front running and other acts on the trading floor of a stock or commodities exchange that can be considered illegal.
One of the more infamous forms of securities fraud resulting in litigation involves the Ponzi scheme. A Ponzi scheme is the operation of an investment fund where the investments provided by newer investors go toward payments to prior investors. Ponzi schemes have been around for centuries and can involve some of the most complex issues surrounding securities fraud ever litigated.
