How Can Clients Recover Investment Losses Involving Mr. Miller and Raymond James & Associates, Inc.?
Registered securities brokers and financial advisors must follow high standards of conduct in dealing with clients and their investment funds. A broker, for instance, has a duty to recommend suitable and appropriate investments and investment strategies based on their clients investment objectives and risk tolerance. This duty and other duties and responsibilities of financial services professionals can be breached by conduct such as:
- Recklessly or negligently giving investment advice
- Intentionally or negligently misrepresenting or concealing important facts about an investment
- Failing to perform due diligence when advising clients.
Additionally, a brokerage firm owes a duty to its clients. For example, a firm must have a system in place which allows it to adequately supervise the conduct of the brokers that it employs. (See FINRA Rule 3110.) If a broker engages in misconduct that harms investors due to the firm’s failure to provide adequate supervision, the firm should be held accountable as well.
If you believe that a broker, financial advisor or firm breached a fiduciary duty owed to you or engaged in other misconduct, including breach of contract or fraudulent activity, you have a right to pursue all available legal options. Those options may include arbitration of your claims or litigation in a state or federal court. It will be important to work with a law firm that has an extensive background in securities arbitration and litigation.
