Stockbroker Fraud

Stockbroker Fraud Overview

When pursuing arbitration for a securities fraud claim, there are normally multiple violations listed in the complaint against a broker. If a broker has engaged in one of many types of wrongdoing, it may be considered a case of broker fraud. These offenses include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Fraudulent Statements and Omissions
  • Selling Away
  • Unsuitable Investments
  • Churning
  • Overconcentration
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Breach of Promise/Contract
  • Unauthorized Trading
  • Theft from Your Account

Brokers are held to a high standard of conduct under the law due to the significant responsibility clients must entrust in them to handle personal assets. If your broker has committed any one of these offenses or otherwise acted inappropriately, you may have grounds for a claim.

Brokerage Firms Can Also Be Responsible for Fraud

Brokers must be licensed and registered in order for governing bodies to maintain oversight of their actions, and to protect you, the investor. In addition to these types of broker fraud, there are offenses that rest on the responsibility of the firms that register brokers. If your broker has committed fraud, their brokerage firm may also be held responsible for the offenses due to a failure to notice or prevent your broker’s wrongdoing. In order to receive the fullest recovery possible, it is important to consult professional legal help when establishing a claim.
