Unauthorized Trading

Representing Investors Harmed By Unauthorized Trading

Unless you have given written trading discretion to trade in your accounts, you should be asked verbally to approve all trades. Unauthorized trading occurs when there is trading in nondiscretionary accounts without your knowledge, which can result in significant financial damage.

At Lewitas Hyman, we represent clients nationwide who are the victims of unauthorized trading, breaches of fiduciary duty and other forms of financial adviser misconduct and securities fraud. Our team of lawyers brings a diverse range of knowledge and experiences to our clients’ cases. Having worked for financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley and UBS Financial Services, and regulators such as the SEC, we have deep insight in all aspects of securities law.

If your financial adviser made trades without your consent, you may be able to pursue a lawsuit to recoup your losses. We’ll help you understand your rights and options. Contact us at (312) 291-4600 or email our team to learn more.
