Was Gonzalo Perez-Verdia Negligent With Your Investments?

 

Investors can bring claims against a brokerage firm, stockbroker, or both, when the firm or stockbroker fails to conduct business with a customer in a way that a reasonably prudent broker would conduct business. Negligence also refers to brokers, possibly including Gonzalo Perez-Verdia, failing to comply with securities industry standards. Additionally, breach of fiduciary duty typically involves a brokerage firm or stockbroker failing to place the investors’ needs and interests first. Notably, a broker violates a fiduciary duty when the broker knowingly benefits financially but at the customer’s expense. Negligence and breach of fiduciary duty are common claims that investors bring against securities firms in FINRA Arbitration claims and complaints.
