Why Hire a Lawyer?
Dealing with a negligent or fraudulent stockbroker by yourself could expose you to further violations of your rights, such as a firm offering you a lowball settlement to try to resolve your claim. If you hire an attorney, however, you can rest assured that someone with experience is looking out for your best interests. A lawyer from Meyer Wilson can carefully review your case, personalize a legal strategy and take action in pursuit of recovery on your behalf – all while you focus on your future.
Identifying Broker Misconduct in Michigan
A stockbroker may negligently or intentionally engage in acts of misconduct. Negligent misconduct may come from the careless treatment of an investor’s portfolio, such as failing to take the appropriate amount of time to review an investment opportunity before recommending it to the client. Intentional misconduct is fraud – knowingly deceiving the investor for the broker’s financial gain. Stockbroker misconduct can take many shapes and forms in Michigan.
- Pump and dump scams
- Ponzi schemes
- Boiler room scams
- Pyramid schemes
- Precious metal scams
- Oil and gas industry fraud
- Front running
- Unsuitable recommendations
- Misrepresentations of material facts
- Churning or excessive trading
From making unauthorized trade deals with an investor’s assets to buying or selling securities at an unreasonable rate for commissions, a stockbroker could engage in many acts of misconduct that ultimately cause economic injury to the investor. At Meyer Wilson, we can review your current circumstances for signs of broker misconduct. If we believe you have a case, we can then help you bring a claim against the appropriate party in Michigan.
Did Broker Misconduct Cause You Economic Injury?
Broker misconduct is a serious type of wrongdoing. Investors fully trust their stockbrokers and financial advisors to make the right decisions for them based on their needs. They may invest hundreds of thousands of dollars on a broker’s recommendation, only to lose it all. If you and your family suffered economic losses and you suspect broker misconduct caused them, you may have grounds to file a civil claim.
A successful civil lawsuit against a broker and/or firm could lead to recovery for all your economic and noneconomic losses. These could include lost or stolen funds, assets, and properties, as well as damages such as pain and suffering, emotional distress and lost quality of life. The defendant may also owe you an award to cover your legal expenses, plus punitive damages.
