State Negligence

Handling Broker Negligence Cases In Florida State Courts

Russell L. Forkey, P.A. represents clients in a broad range of state court litigation, including claims involving allegations of broker negligence.

Relationships between brokers and clients come in three distinct forms:

  • Discretionary accounts
  • Nondiscretionary account
  • Hybrid account

In a legal dispute between a broker and a client, the duties of the broker are defined by the specific nature of the broker-client relationship. For instance, the duties brokers carry when handling nondiscretionary accounts include:

  • Recommending stocks only after a thorough analysis
  • Carrying out orders in a manner best suited to the client’s interests
  • Informing clients of potential risks in regard to the purchase or sale of a security
  • Refraining from self-dealing
  • Making transactions on a client account only after receiving authorization

In handling broker negligence claims, an attorney must take a number of factors into consideration, including the nature of the broker-client relationship and the duties that relationship entails. With more than 30 years of experience, attorney Russell L. Forkey is well-versed in the nuances of these business relationships and can help you understand your possession in such a dispute.
