Stockbroker Failure to Execute Orders

When Your Broker Failed to Follow Your Instructions

There is a level of trust between an investor-client and his or her broker. In addition, brokers have the duty to operate in good faith, which includes executing orders made by the client. When he or she fails to do so, it could be considered stockbroker misconduct. If your broker did not buy or sell a specific security after you provided instructions to do so, you may be able to recover your financial loss. This type of claim is typically referred to as “failure to execute.”

A failure to execute claim could include any of the following:

  • A broker refused to buy or sell a stock
  • A stop loss order was not executed

Investment Misconduct Lawyer

If you requested an order be placed on your behalf and your broker failed to timely execute that order, you may be eligible to recover any losses associated with the failure to execute. Brokers and advisors have a duty to operate in good faith.
