Illinois Broker Fraud Attorneys
Our Trusted Chicago Securities Law Firm Represents Illinois Investors Against Their Broker-Dealers
If you lost money on NYSE Chicago or in an investment that was marketed to you by a US financial advisor, and you are wondering whether stockbroker fraud or negligence was a factor, Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (investorlawyers.com) can help you explore your legal options. We represent investors throughout The Prairie State in holding broker-dealers liable for our client’s losses.
From our Chicago broker fraud law firm conveniently located in the city’s Loop, we work with Illinois investors in pursuing the damages they are owed because of the following kinds of broker misconduct:
- Failure to diversify
- Misrepresentations and omissions
- Breach of contract
- Failure to supervise
- Much more
Even if your financial advisor didn’t mean for you to suffer your serious financial product losses, if they breached their fiduciary duty to you in any way, you may have grounds for a FINRA lawsuit against them. You also may be able to sue your broker-dealer that should have properly trained and been overseeing their registered representative to ensure that nothing untoward was going on in your brokerage account.
Unfortunately, there are also brokerage firms and financial advisors who may purposely seek to place customers’ money at risk out of pure malintent in favor of earning high commissions and fees. When a financial product fails or proves fraudulent, it is the investors that end up suffering.
