Holding Brokers Accountable for Wrongdoing

Investors put trust in their brokers and advisers. Industry regulations require that brokers make recommendations that are in their clients' best interest. An investment recommendation that does not take into account your current and future financial situation, risk tolerance, portfolio, age, investment knowledge, and more may be unsuitable.

Unsuitable recommendations can result in significant losses. At Meyer Wilson, we have extensive experience investigating claims of unsuitability and other broker misconduct. We fight tirelessly to recover losses for our clients, holding all liable parties responsible for their wrongdoing.
