NFP Advisor Services Group Investment Attorney
The law offices of Gana Weinstein LLP represents securities investors that have disputes with their financial advisors or brokerage firms, such as NFP Advisor Services Group (NFP Advisor). Many investors believe that if they complain about the misconduct to their brokerage firms or regulators such as state attorney generals or the SEC that their losses will be compensated. However, firms rarely admit to wrongdoing and regulators do not often recover funds on behalf of private investors.
There are many different types of investment related misconduct including securities fraud, unsuitable investment products such as private placements, penny stocks, and non-traded REITs. Our firm’s attorneys can analyze your investment accounts and determine if there was actionable misconduct by the financial advisor or brokerage firm.
