What Is Broker Fraud?

Contrary to the term, stockbroker fraud doesn’t just involve an unscrupulous financial advisor plotting to steal an investor’s money—although sometimes, it does. Florida broker misconduct can encompass different kinds of fiduciary breaches or mistakes, including:

  • Making unsuitable investment recommendations.
  • Overconcentrating an elderly Florida investor’s brokerage account with too many high-risk investments.
  • Failing to conduct the proper due diligence to make sure a financial product is appropriate for a conservative investor given their financial goals and age.
  • Excessively trading in a customer’s account.
  • Making misrepresentations and omissions when conveying to an investor the risks they are taking on when purchasing a certain security.
  • Not regularly reviewing an investor’s portfolio to see if their assets need to be better diversified.
  • Failing to properly supervise a client’s account.
  • Disregarding signs of broker misconduct occurring within the firm.
  • Ignoring red flags that an investment is actually part of a financial scam.

How Can Our Skilled Florida Broker Negligence Lawsuit Attorneys Help

It is important to reiterate that not all investment losses warrant grounds for a broker fraud lawsuit. However, when they do, and the losses are significant, you will want to retain the services of an experienced Tampa securities law firm that has a record of helping investors recover damages from the broker-dealer that should be held liable.

Most brokerage firms are not inclined to admit to wrongdoing or mistakes because they don’t want you or anyone else suing them for damages. Not only will they make it very difficult for you to obtain financial recovery from them, but also, they will have their own team of attorneys fighting against you.

At Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas, we have exclusively represented investors against brokerage firms and investment advisers for more than 30 years. This has led to us going up against the largest US broker-dealers in arbitration, mediation, and litigation to collectively recover many millions of dollars for thousands of clients.

As former brokers at some of the biggest Wall Street firms, we are familiar with the bad habits and unsavory tactics in that industry that unnecessarily costs investors every year. It is why we now take that former insider knowledge, along with over a century’s worth of combined experience in securities law and the securities industry, to fight for investors and protect their legal rights. Should we agree to work together, you will have our entire Florida broker fraud law firm representing you.

Pursuing damages from a brokerage firm requires very specific strategies and skills, which is why you cannot afford to hire just anyone to represent you. We have the resources and manpower to see your investor loss claim to its conclusion. More than 90% of the clients we have worked with have received full or partial financial recovery with our help.

Representing Florida Retirees and Senior Investors Against Brokerage Firms

With more than 25% of the state’s population comprised of residents ages 65 and older, it is no wonder that Florida senior investors and retirees are a vulnerable target not just of fraudsters but of brokers, both the unscrupulous ones and the ones who can be reckless or negligent—especially when a retirement nest egg is involved.

Our Tampa, FL elder financial abuse lawyers represent older investors and retirees in their Florida broker fraud lawsuits. We know how devastating it can be to see the hard-earned savings that you’ve accumulated over a lifetime disappear because of someone else’s wrongful or careless actions. You want a seasoned retirement loss law firm providing you with quality, personalized securities representation.
