Working with Seasoned Investment Attorneys Increases Your Chances of Financial Recovery

In Mississippi, the state’s Securities Division is tasked with regulating securities professionals and the investments they sell. This division enforces the Mississippi Securities Act and can bring administrative actions against violators.

Sometimes, such an action may result in a partial or full refund of losses suffered by an investor. However, if you want to maximize your chances of a financial recovery, your best bet is to retain the services of a savvy Gulfport securities law firm that will zealously pursue your case for you while protecting your legal rights.

Investor fraud claims against a broker or investment advisor can be tough to prove. It may even seem that your losses result from market turbulence or adverse events. When, in fact, they occurred because your registered financial representative:

  • Recommended investments that were unsuitable for your portfolio or risk tolerance level
  • Over Concentrated your account in too much of one particular security
  • Failed to conduct the proper due diligence about an investment that later proved fraudulent
  • Breached their fiduciary duty to you in some other way

Even if your broker-dealer was not aware of your registered representative's fraudulent or negligent actions, it was still the firm’s duty to properly supervise them and your account to ensure that your money was protected. A brokerage firm can be held liable when inadequate supervision enables fraud or carelessness that leads to investor losses.

Filing a FINRA Arbitration Claim

If you wish to recover damages, you must file a claim with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). A FINRA arbitration case is not a complaint you should pursue without knowledgeable legal help.

Our Gulfport securities lawyers have successfully represented investors in disputes over losses involving numerous types of securities and investment products, including:

Client Reviews
"I am going to miss conversations with you, Sam Edwards. You’ve been a wonderful lawyer and a friend. I loved learning legal jargon from you. But, even more, it is your self-respect and commitment to your position that I admire and your persistent patience-your equanimity. With great appreciation, thank you!" M.B.
"My experience with Ryan Cook has been very positive. Through every step of the litigation he explained what to expect to happen. When I spoke with him later he reviewed the process. He was very patient, and I never felt rushed. I have already told friends how wonderful he is." L.R.
"I want you to know that I very much appreciate your expertise, hard work, and guidance that led to a satisfactory resolution with Raymond James. From our first meeting, I felt "heard" and that my situation and story were respected. Every subsequent interaction I had with any of you - in person, via email, or by phone - only corroborated that feeling. What great work you do on behalf of people like me who have been wronged, yet don't know how to navigate the appeals/mediation/arbitration process as you do. I will be forever grateful." M.L.
"Good positive experience. Guided us through a difficult process and was pleased with the outcome. Everyone I dealt with was exceptional." A.G.
"Good intelligent attorneys who never miss a beat. I set my expectations high, and they delivered above and beyond. Do not miss the opportunity to let SSEK represent you. Top-notch, efficient and effective firm." S.M.
