Investment fraud happens with far more frequency than it should and the lawyers at Dallas Law Firm Johnston Tobey Baruch are committed to helping those who fall prey to unscrupulous brokers and money managers.
Today, stock portfolios are going great guns, increasing almost on a daily basis. In flush times for the market, stockbrokers tend to get sloppy and often fail to operate in the best interest of their clients. The clients, who are seeing these tremendous increases, usually don’t notice that they are being taken advantage of until another downturn causes them to look closely at their stocks. Johnston Tobey Baruch represents those investors who are paying attention and seek damages against a stockbroker for the following types of improper actions:
Unsuitability – Federal regulations require brokers to suggest investments that are appropriate or well suited to their clients’ needs and circumstances.
Churning – Brokers whose compensation is based partly on the number of shares traded must not suggest trades simply to pad their own accounts.
Unauthorized Trading – Brokers are required to gain authorization for trades from their clients and not purchase stocks for a client without authorization.
Fraud – These are the very lies and misrepresentations that have made people suspicious of stockbrokers and money managers for decades.
Stockbroker fraud actions rarely go to trial but are decided by a panel of arbitrators.
