Commercial Litigation FAQs

Can I Sue a Financial Advisor?

Get Answers from Our Commercial Litigation Attorneys

It happens all too often in Texas and across the country. Investors work hard and save money to invest in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other securities, and their stockbrokers or investment advisors either intentionally or negligently cause them to lose everything they invested.

Financial advisors are professionals who provide their services to individuals and businesses who need advice on investments and financial planning.

This may occur when the financial advisor gets you to invest in stocks or commodities based on bad advice or outright lies, does not invest the money as you had requested or bilks you out of your funds through a Ponzi scheme or some other form of investment sham. The key is in determining whether or not the financial advisor was negligent or purposefully lost your funds. If you enter into a contract with a financial advisor, and they do not meet their part of the agreement, you may be entitled to receive compensation due to breach of contract laws.

Fortunately, state and federal laws provide remedies for other types of loss incurred as a result of a financial advisor such as breach of fiduciary duty, misrepresentation, securities fraud, and unfair or deceptive trade practices. However, these laws are complicated, and protecting your legal rights under them requires the help of a savvy, aggressive business and commercial litigation law firm.
