Monmouth Lawyers Handling Broker/Professional Malpractice
Every broker has a duty to his or her clients. A securities broker may be negligent if he or she breaches this duty by performing his or her job at a level below the standard of care a reasonable broker would have employed in a similar situation. For example, a negligent broker might:
- Fail to thoroughly investigate the investment before recommending it to a client
- Disregard a client’s investment goals or specific instructions regarding his or her investments
- Misrepresent or mischaracterize an investment to a client
Unlike broker fraud or churning, negligence does not need to be willful. If you suffered significant financial losses as a result of your broker’s failure to act, you may have a negligence claim. Our attorneys have significant experience securing compensation for victims of broker negligence in litigation, arbitration and mediation.
In addition to representing plaintiffs, our firm also defends brokers from negligence actions and accusations of breach of fiduciary duty, broker malpractice or fraud. We are experienced at protecting the rights of brokers and brokerage firms before the SEC, FINRA, the New Jersey Bureau of Securities and in the courtroom.
