Are You Dealing with Investment Fraud in Texas?
Investment fraud involves using false or misleading information to convince investors to make investment decisions that result in substantial losses.
All forms of investment fraud aim to deceive investors into taking actions that benefit the perpetrator financially.
When you first hired your broker-dealer, it’s likely that you trusted them to put your best interests first.
Unfortunately, many brokers and financial advisors don’t live up to their fiduciary duty or have committed outright securities fraud.
Yes, investment losses are a part of investing, but when brokers commit fraud, they can be held legally responsible. If you believe you have been a victim of investment fraud, it is important to contact an investment fraud lawyer with experience handling these types of cases.
The sooner you act, the greater your chances of recovering compensation.
At the Law Offices of Robert Wayne Pearce, P.A., we have helped countless investors recover their losses due to investment fraud. We will investigate your case and fight to get you justice and the compensation you deserve.
If you have lost money due to negligence or fraud by a stockbroker or advisor, the easiest way to know if you have a case is to call our office at 800-732-2889.
Are All Investment Loss Cases Securities Fraud?
No, not all investment losses are due to securities fraud. Fortunately, regardless of whether your broker has been negligent or engaged in inappropriate conduct leading to monetary losses, you could still have the right to file a claim.
For most investors, spotting the signs of investment fraud can be difficult.
That’s why it is important to speak to an experienced attorney who can help you identify the signs of fraud and determine whether you have a viable case.
As a good rule of thumb, if you have suffered significant losses while working with a broker or advisor, it’s best to consult an experienced investment fraud attorney.
What are Common Types of Investment Fraud?
There are a variety of investment fraud tactics that unscrupulous brokers and advisors may use.
Our firm has represented investors who have fallen victim to a wide range of investment fraud tactics, including:
- Unauthorized trading on a non-discretionary account
- Forced liquidation (forced selling)
- Churning or excessive trading
- Failure to supervise
- Lack of diversification
- Misappropriation of client funds
- Ponzi schemes
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Financial elder abuse
Since each case is unique, it is important to speak with an experienced investment fraud lawyer that understands Texas securities law to discuss your particular situation.
Can I Recover my Investment Losses?
In order to recover your investment losses, you must prove that your broker-dealer or financial advisor breached their fiduciary duty to you as an investor.
In most cases, this means filing a FINRA arbitration claim against the broker-dealer and/or representative.
The majority of securities fraud cases are handled by FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) rather than being brought to the court system.
FINRA arbitration is a streamlined, cost-effective way to resolve disputes between investors and their brokers without going to court – it also allows you to collect punitive damages, which are not available in civil court.
As an investor, you have certain rights that must be respected and protected.
When these rights are violated, you may be entitled to compensation.
