With all its rules and regulations, the Colorado Division of Securities is there to protect investors. The Colorado Securities Act is supposed to ensure that financial professionals who offer and sell securities in the state are properly licensed. Yet securities fraud and investment advisor fraud happen all the time and may include:
- Misrepresentations and omissions
- Unsuitable investment recommendations and sales
- Excessive trading in a customer’s account, also known as churning
- Unauthorized trading
- Failure to execute trades
- Registration violations
- Selling away
- Misappropriation of a client’s funds
- Failure to supervise
It can be hard to know whether broker fraud or negligence has occurred. Was normal market activity the cause of your investment losses, or did your broker engage in misconduct, making you vulnerable to losing money that you wouldn’t have otherwise? Were you the victim of misappropriation? Did your financial advisor mismanage your account?
This is why it is so important that you speak with knowledgeable Denver securities lawyers. We know how to identify the signs of investment fraud and can help you take steps to stop further losses from happening.
We can file your claim for damages through the process of Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration. This is not the type of case you want to pursue without an accomplished legal team fighting for you and protecting your rights.
State securities regulators, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and FINRA will go after bad brokers and their firms, even obtaining disgorgement of ill-gotten gains in numerous cases. But what is often recovered is nominal and will have to be shared among all those who suffered losses.
Hiring a skilled Denver investment fraud law firm to represent you and your interests is the only way to increase your chances of maximizing your recovery.Denver Retirees Are Vulnerable to Elder Financial Abuse
As a state, Colorado is consistently ranked as one of the best places to retire and boasts a robust community of seniors and early retirees.
Unfortunately, some bad brokers will try to take advantage of senior investors’ healthy retirement funds by over concentrating their portfolios or investing their money in high-risk securities. Seniors with dementia or other impairments are also a target of financial advisers seeking to steal a client's funds.
The consequences can be devastating for a retiree or senior investor to lose money due to stockbroker fraud at this late stage in life. Our Denver elder financial abuse attorneys and skilled retirement losses lawyers are here to help.Experienced Broker Fraud Attorneys in Denver Who Will Fight For You
