If you’ve been the victim of Stock Broker Fraud, you may need to speak with a Securities Litigation Attorney or a Securities Arbitration Lawyer who can help you understand what your rights are and assist you in recovering your losses.
“Securities fraud” is a term frequently bandied about in the media, and has come to mean different things to different people, depending on who is using it. Virtually all brokers and brokerage firms are regulated by FINRA (f/k/a NASD), and most allegations of deception may be pursued the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, State Securities Statuses and FINRA rules. Generally speaking, a recovery may be obtained under State Securities Statuses or FINRA rules even if the underlying conduct was merely negligent.
Many lawyers have a passing familiarity with certain aspects of these laws, but there are very few attorneys who possess a detailed appreciation for how these legal principles operate in conjunction with one another. Moreover, only a small percentage of lawyers have a genuine understanding of how the securities industry actually operates on a pragmatic level.
