Fraud is the ugly side of doing business. Trust breaks down and deliberate deception is at play so that one side or the other can secure their illegal gains.
Investment losses can often be the result of violations guided by a stockbroker, investment company, financial advisor or the creator of the investment product. It is, however, often challenging to demonstrate investment fraud, negligence or wrongdoing by an investment advisor, company or the like. Not to mention the fact that investment companies have what seems like limitless access to funds available to protect their interests. Those promoting an investment product are obligated to divulge all facts pertaining to the product, failure to do so can lead to securities or investment fraud. Financial advisors are also obligated to disclose all pertinent facts, as providing incorrect or faulty advice via negligence opens the door to claim financial advisor or stockbroker malpractice. If you find yourself sustaining investment losses or financial fraud, it’s important that you seek out a professional and experienced lawyer ready to represent you
