Are there any specific protections available to Connecticut Investors?

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has enacted securities laws and regulations to protect Massachusetts investors . Most notable is the Mass. Gen. Laws ch 110A, the Massachusetts Securities Act [MUSA]. . Rregulations enacted by the Massachusetts Securities Division, including the Massachusetts Uniform Securities Act , along with other state and federal securities laws, and FINRA rules and regulations, provide Massachusetts investors the chance to recover their portfolios and investments lost through investment advisor, brokerage firm, and/or stockbroker misconduct.

The Massachusetts Securities Division does not represent individual investors victimized by securities fraud; generally, only a private investment/securities attorney will pursue a recovery action on behalf of an individual investor. Even though the Department oversees and regulates licensing all of the stockbrokers and financial advisors in the state to ensure compliance with securitieslaws, the Department does not generally have the power to mandate the return of lost investment funds to victims of securities fraud – only a court with jurisdiction over a claim or a FINRA Arbitration panel may have that authority. Due to the complicated nature of such claims, and nuances involved, it is vital to have an experienced and skilled FINRA Arbitration attorney on your side to fight for the recovery of your individual and retirement funds.

How Frequent Are the Incidents of Investor Fraud in Massachusetts?

Massachusetts has had quite a number of scandals, including bogus investment schemes, often sold to senior citizens, affinity fraud scandals, Non-Traded REIT sanctions imposed on a number of brokerage firms such as LPL Financial, and unregistered investment sales.

Howard Rosenfield is truly a life saver. After months of working with my financial advisor, I found out he was making risky investments without my knowledge.

If it wasn't for Howard, I would never have recovered my losses and would be under extreme financial distress to this day. J.
Howard’s experience and advice throughout this ordeal was invaluable and reassuring. The law in general is complicated, difficult to understand and very personal. Financial misappropriation is even more personal but Howard’s years of experience and calm demeanor helped keep me calm, focused and moving forward.
