Often, we place our trust in stock brokers and securities firms to help us diversify our financial portfolios and invest our hard-earned money wisely. Unfortunately, some of these professionals pocket our money or cause us to lose out on our investments.
At The Jones Firm, we have extensive experience working on behalf of state or finance committees, pension managers, and teachers’ unions; we fight aggressively to help them recover losses they incurred as a result of fraud.
Illegal Securities Practices
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was established to regulate the financial markets and govern the trading of securities. According to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, several investment practices are deemed illegal, including:
- Breach of Fiduciary Duty
- Unauthorized Transactions
- “Ponzi” Schemes
- Excessive Trading
- Surprise Margin Calls
At The Jones Firm, we represent individual investors and pension fund managers who have been deceived by the unscrupulous dealings of financial advisors and corporations. If you have lost money, retirement, or pension funds as a result of bad financial advice from an investment broker or other advisor, we will fight to hold the negligent party or parties responsible.
