When to Hire a Broker Misconduct Lawyer
If you discover that your financial investments have taken a significant turn for the worse due to broker misconduct, securing the services of an experienced broker misconduct attorney can be critical.
When working with an investment broker, people assume they are putting their financial futures in the hands of a professional who will act in their best interests. Unfortunately, far too frequently, brokers engage in misconduct intended to bring in additional money for themselves, often at the expense of their clients.
While a broker misconduct attorney can help you recover damages after you have been victimized, there are several warning signs to look out for that can decrease your chances of working with a broker who will mishandle your money. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission provides a list of red flags to look out for when choosing a broker:
- Offers of “risk-free” investments
- Low-quality websites
- Brokers pressuring you to invest right away
- Financial brokers from foreign countries
- Unsolicited investment offers, especially through email
- Brokers asking you to pay for investments with a credit card or by wiring money to a bank
- Errors on your investment statements
If you suffered significant losses after investing your money with an investment broker who presented any of these red flags, an experienced broker misconduct lawyer can help you fight for the money you deserve.

Broker Misconduct Cases Are Typically Handled Through Arbitration
The majority of broker misconduct cases are settled through arbitration. A large part of the reason for this is that when people sign a contract with a broker to handle their money, there is usually a clause in the contract that states that all disputes will be settled by arbitration.
Our team of broker misconduct lawyers has a long history of securing significant compensation for our clients through arbitration. Even though your case is unlikely to ever go to court, we prepare as though we will be taking your case to trial. This ensures that we build the strongest case possible on your behalf.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) typically regulates these arbitration hearings. The aim of arbitration is to provide a quick and fair resolution to your dispute rather than having to worry about them getting tied down in a complex legal battle that takes significant time to resolve.
Our Team of Broker Misconduct Attorneys Works on a Contingency Fee Basis
When hiring our team to represent you as you pursue compensation in a broker misconduct case, you will never have to worry about the cost of our services. When facing financial concerns, we don’t want to add to your worries by confronting you with expensive legal fees.
Because of this, we work on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you pay nothing unless we recover compensation on your behalf. If we are successful in getting you money from the broker who mishandled your finances, we will collect a fee in the form of a fixed percentage of the money you recover.
This fee will be paid directly from your financial reward, which means you never pay anything out of pocket. If we are unable to secure money on your behalf, you won’t pay us a single penny for our services.
Our lawyers are nationwide leaders in investment fraud cases.

Maintaining a Manageable Caseload

While we have a large team of attorneys at our firm, we are careful not to spread them too thin. We provide the staffing necessary for each case to give it the best chance for success, and this tends to translate into far more money recovered for our clients.
