Breach of Fiduciary Duty

United States Breach of Fiduciary Duty Attorney

Representing Investors

Here's the scenario: as an investor, you find out that your portfolio is being mismanaged or neglected by your broker, who promised you that he would monitor the account's value and keep you apprised of any material developments in the stock or the industry it's in. Who's responsible? Has your broker engaged in breach of fiduciary duty?

At Kaufmann Gildin & Robbins LLP , it's our job to find out. Our firm has extensive experience dealing with customer complaints against brokers, including those involving breach of fiduciary duty. Most firms assert that all duties end at point-of-sale, while the actual relationship between the customer and his broker may prompt continuing obligations.

So, who is ultimately responsible for managing your portfolio? A better question to ask is: Who's making the ultimate investment decision? If it was the customers, then the customers have ultimate responsibility for what happened with their money. However, if it's their broker or brokerage firm making the ongoing decisions, the law imposes a greater obligation on them to properly manage your money and make decisions consistent with your financial goals, objectives and situation.

If you are an investor who believes a broker or brokerage firm has demonstrated a breach of contract or breach of fiduciary duty, contact us today for practical advice and experienced representation from attorneys with thorough knowledge of securities law and handling securities disputes.
