Denver Broker Fraud Arbitration and Litigation Attorneys
Located on the South Platte River Valley, Denver is Colorado’s capital city and a bustling metropolitan. In 2020, US News and World Report ranked Denver as the #2 best place to live in the country.
It is one of only 10 US cities to have professional teams in five major sports: the Denver Nuggets (NBA) the Colorado Rockies (MLB), the Colorado Avalanche (NHL), the Colorado Rapids (MLS), and the Denver Broncos (NFL), which has won three Super Bowl Championships.

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 happens 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 or carelessness, making you vulnerable to losing your 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 fraud 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 that you want to pursue without an accomplished legal team fighting for you and protecting your rights.
Granted, 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 often, what is recovered is nominal and will have to be shared among all of 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 Investor Fraud
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, there are bad brokers who will try to take advantage of senior investors’ healthy retirement funds by overconcentrating their portfolios or investing their money in securities that are too high risk for their conservative investment goals. Seniors suffering from dementia or other impairments are also a target of financial advisers seeking to steal a client's funds.
For a retiree or senior investor to lose money due to stockbroker fraud at this late stage in life, the consequences can be devastating. Our Denver elder financial abuse attorneys and skilled retirement losses lawyers are here to help.Experienced Denver Broker Fraud Attorneys Who Will Fight For You
