Louisiana Financial Advisor Fraud Lawyers

Louisiana Financial Advisor Fraud Lawyers

From Our New Orleans Law Offices, We Work With Investors To Recoup Their Investment Losses 

Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas (investorlawyers.com) work with individual and institutional investors throughout the state to help them obtain the financial recovery they are owed by financial advisors who have committed fraud, engaged in some other type of misconduct or were negligent. With over 100 years of combined experience in securities law and the securities industry, our Louisiana financial advisor misconduct attorneys have the skills, knowledge, and savvy to help you.

Even though financial advisor fraud is illegal, incidents of misconduct, misappropriation, or carelessness do happen. Unfortunately, by the time such occurrences come to light an investor usually will already have suffered significant portfolio losses. Even then, proving that you were the victim of wrongdoing by a professional that you entrusted to take care of your money—in some cases, your life savings—can be difficult. This is why you want to work with Metairie, LA financial advisor misconduct lawyers who know how to fight for you.

We represent Bayou State investors who have been the victims of the following by financial advisors in Louisiana and the rest of the United States:


  • Unsuitable investment recommendations
  • Margin abuse
  • Concentration
  • Failure to diversify
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Investment fraud
  • Failure to supervise
  • Misrepresentations and omissions
  • Unauthorized trading
  • Selling away
  • Churning
  • Misappropriation
  • Breach of contract
  • Elder financial abuse
  • Financial product failure
  • And more.

Unfortunately, financial advisors and their broker-dealers are unlikely to admit to liability without a fight. Trying to resolve your dispute directly with them, and without Louisiana solid securities law representation by your side, not only could prove futile; it might undermine your case in the long run. If anything, it is important that you don’t talk to your broker about your suspicions and seek seasoned legal counsel instead.


At Shepherd Smith Edwards and Kantas, our Louisiana Financial Advisor Fraud Lawyers would be happy to provide you with a free, no-obligation case consultation to help you determine whether you have grounds for a claim. We can’t tell you how many times we have discovered incidents of broker fraud or negligence that might otherwise have gone undetected by less capable legal professionals.

A few of the main areas we will look at:

  • Your level of investing experience
  • Your investment goals
  • What your financial advisor told you about your investments
  • The activities in your account
  • The cause of your investment losses
  • Your total losses.

If you are the victim of financial advisor misconduct, and we decide to work together, we can help you file your Louisiana investment loss recovery claim after conducting a thorough investigation.

As an investor, you will likely have signed a pre-dispute arbitration clause agreeing to resolve any disputes with your brokerage firm and their registered representatives in Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration. Over the years, we have successfully represented many investors in arbitration, mediation, negotiation and litigation. We understand the different strategies required for each legal venue. We know how to maximize your chances for a full financial recovery.
