Sarasota Securities Litigation Lawyer
Securities law is extremely complex – the average layperson couldn’t begin to describe the first thing about federal or state securities law. While they may seem elusive, securities laws are incredibly important, and help to protect investors from fraudulent or unscrupulous practices engaged in by brokers and other parties relevant to contracts, stocks and bonds, mutual funds, and other investment vessels. At the law office of Barbas Nunez Sanders Butler & Hovsepian, our Sarasota securities litigation lawyers provide counsel and defense related to securities violations and accusations. Please call our law firm today for representation in navigating this complex legal area.
Services for Investors and Stockbrokers
Our law firm provides representation for investors who believe that they have a claim against a broker or another party related to a breach of securities laws, as well as stockbrokers who have been accused of a securities violation. If you believe that a stockbroker has violated their fiduciary duty to you as an investor, or if you are a stockbroker who has been accused of or charged with securities violations, you need a skilled Sarasota securities litigation attorney on your side.
Common Stockbroker Violations
Stockbrokers owe a fiduciary duty to investors. Some common breaches of this fiduciary duty that can result in securities litigation include:
- Omission, which is a form of securities fraud that occurs when a broker intentionally withholds important information;
- Misrepresentation, which occurs when a broker misrepresents information to an investor;
- Excessive trading or “churning,” which occurs when a broker engages in excessive buying or selling for the purpose of generating a commission;
- Unsuitable investments, which occurs when a broker makes an investment that is not consistent with an investor’s stated objectives; and
- Unauthorized trading, which refers to a situation in which a broker makes a trade without the express permission of the client.
