Going up against a financial advisor or corporation in Michigan may require assistance from an attorney.

Working with a fraud lawyer from Meyer Wilson, on the other hand, can ensure you do not allow the defendant to take advantage of you during the claims process. Your attorney can handle the difficult or complex aspects of your case while fighting for fair compensation for investment misconduct on your behalf. You will have the peace of mind to focus on your personal needs.
An investment adviser is someone who manages investments and assets on behalf of another party, the investor, and is a fiduciary to the investor. A fiduciary must abide by state and federal regulations in terms of standards of client care. Fiduciary duty refers to an ethical obligation to act within another party’s best interests. A fiduciary financial advisor could still breach a duty of care that ultimately results in economic injury to the client.
Any breach of fiduciary duty by an investment adviser could have significant consequences for an investor. If you trusted your account into the hands of a financial advisor only to suffer substantial economic losses, you may be the victim of advisor misconduct. An investment adviser could breach his or her fiduciary duties in many respects.
Many different actions could constitute a breach of fiduciary duty if your lawyer can prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care, breached this duty, and in doing so caused your economic injury. If you are unsure whether a recent action by your financial advisor qualifies as a breach of duty, please consult with an attorney for more information. Our lawyers can conduct a review of your potential case for free in Michigan.
