“The public looks upon stockbrokers as professionals, giving disinterested advice. The fact is, while many brokers are honest and hard-working, their success in the industry is not based upon the advice they give but upon the sales they make.”
– Attorney Christopher Kolb
Wisconsin Stockbroker Misconduct Lawyers
Stockbrokers have a duty to make financial recommendations that are in their customers’ best interests. Yet, sometimes brokers and investment advisors make decisions that ignore their client’s needs, investments objectives, or risk tolerance. Sometimes, they undertake trades that are aimed at increasing their own commissions rather than protecting and increasing their clients’ wealth
Working Today to Protect Your Future
If you think you’ve lost money because of the fraud, negligence or other misconduct of a stockbroker, investment advisor, or financial representative, please contact a Wisconsin stockbroker misconduct attorney at Halling & Cayo today. Whether it involves stocks or bonds, mutual funds or annuities, we can help victims of investment fraud or broker misconduct recover losses through the securities arbitration process.
With more than 40 years of combined legal experience helping victims of investment fraud and securities broker misconduct, we are considered one of the preeminent stock fraud and broker misconduct firms in Wisconsin. Individually, our attorneys have been recognized in the “Super Lawyer” survey of Wisconsin lawyers and in the “Best Lawyers of Milwaukee” edition of Milwaukee Magazine for expertise in the area of securities litigation, have been honored for articles on securities fraud, and have been chosen to present seminars to other lawyers on the subject of securities litigation.
Victims of stockbroker misconduct may be highly successful people in their own fields, and we have represented physicians, business owners, and attorneys who have lost significant amounts of money as a result of the misconduct of stockbrokers whom they trusted.
“Stockbroker misconduct is not always motivated by greed. Sometimes the broker simply believes he can outsmart the market and wants to be a hero for his client. However, whatever the motivation for a broker making inappropriate recommendations, it is your account and your retirement that suffers the consequences. You need competent counsel to recover those losses.”
– Attorney Sean M. Sweeney
However, we also have represented unsophisticated investors who lost money they had saved for retirement or had acquired through inheritance, divorce, or a personal injury settlement. Anyone can be the target of investment advisor misconduct, and if you have been, we want to help.
We offer flexible fee arrangements, representing victims of investment losses on a contingency fee basis, for an hourly rate, or a combination of the two, depending on the size of the financial loss.
